    Tuesday did laundry , chatted with Richard McGorty as he
     delivered our backed up mail .

     but connection uselessly unreliable until evening when I
     scanned my accumulated 250 non-news e-mails .

    Thursday morning but in my snmail was an invitation to

     I had to go particularly because for the first time in years
      I'm armed with 2500 real business cards ( The image of the

    When the express came into City Hall station , full --
     as usual ; I may have actually  sighed with relief .
    When the luncheon ended up full , with some very pertinent
     and interesting companies ( see my notes at
      http://cosy.com/current.htm#ThisWeek . The presentations
      are available at the Equities website )
     the return to normalcy was palpably reassuring .
    
    /2019/ I'll finish this ( and deal with my accounts )
     in the morning I'm because in my mail is an interesting
    invite to  The Time is Always Now  at 476 Broome .
    
    It looks to me that New York is back to work
     with a vengeance .

John was filing retirement papers at police headquarters downtown when the first plane struck the World Trade Towers. He and the captain on duty rushed to the scene to help evacuate people. The building was dark, and John and the captain were leading people out by having them follow the sound of their voices. When the building bagan to collapse, the captain warned John to evacuate, but John insisted on staying as long as there were people still inside. The captain barely got out in time and saw John disappear into the dust as the building fell. John was a great humanitarian, a dedicated libertarian, and a rare human being.

It does not attempt to explain how the universe came to be so uniform, or why it began so extraordinarily close to the critical density. Guth will argue that the inflationary universe model provides plausible answers to the questions, and even offers a possible explanation for the origin of essentially all the matter and energy in the observed universe. Recent observations of distant supernovae and the cosmic microwave background radiation strongly suggest that the universe has a critical density of energy, and that its expansion is accelerating. These observations have radically altered our picture of the universe, but have also helped to confirm the basic predictions of inflationary models. With the M.I.T. Alumni Club. Reception at 6:00 pm.

The criminally insane Bin Ladin , now spouting patent jiberish that this is a war of Christianity - including in the conspiracy everyone from Kofi Annan to all the leaders of Islamic countries - against Islam , is really splitting the Moslem world into the modernists , eg , Benazir Bhuto , the Hillary Clinton of Pakistan , and the Kozinsky-like Luddites . Financial Times Editorial comment: Terrorist funds Tracking down the funds used to finance terrorism is like searching for a needle in a haystack... US officials have estimated that staging the September 11 attacks cost less than $500,000 (345,000) - in a world where some $1,500bn flows through foreign exchange markets daily. When the leaders of the hijackers opened a US bank account, they are reported to have transferred in $100,000 from the Gulf - an amount unlikely to have occasioned a suspicious transaction report to the authorities. The rest of the gang opened accounts with cash or travellers' cheques. / ==================== / sat.nov.20011103 / ==================== / 14-2130/ DiasporA NoW Island art , 80 St Nicholas Place #1B . / ==================== / sun.nov.20011104 / ==================== / -7 / APL2000 User Conference nAPLes FL New @ CoSy/language : 99 Bottles of Beer in 227 computer languages .

Libertarian Ron Paul ( rR-TX) : : I thought it was undermining the Constitution, so I didn't vote for it and therefore I'm somehow not a patriot. That's insulting. C.L. "Butch" Otter (R-Idaho), another of the three GOP lawmakers who found the legislation unconstitutional, says he knew this provision would be a problem. "Section 215 authorizes the FBI to acquire any business records whatsoever by order of a secret U.S. court. The recipient of such a search order is forbidden from telling any person that he has received such a request. This is a violation of the First Amendment right to free speech and the Fourth Amendment protection of private property." The only independent Marxist in the House, Rep. Bernie Sanders from Vermont, couldn't support the bill for similar reasons: I took an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States, and I'm concerned that voting for this legislation fundamentally violates that oath. 18-20/ BITS, BYTES & BAR , Downtown Teky Neting : KickStart 1 West Street, # 100 ( aka 17 Battery Place . 4/5 to Bowling Green, walk south to Battery Place and west to West St. RSVP / ==================== / wed.nov.20011114 / ==================== / 19-21/ Manhattan Libertarians "Champions" , 300 W 43 , Fl 3 @ 8th Ave Agenda: Election results & analyses , Candidates sharing experiences Discussion: What is next?

    CoSy-NoteComputing Newsletter @ 0112  /               Y K ?   0 : STRUCTURE
    
    Why have I moved from ancient flat APL , skipping the great modern nested APLs ,
    all the way to the youngest , most independently minded evolute of this language
    family ? What are differences , the pros and cons of K versus other APLs and Ken
    Iverson's own evolute J ?
    
    The first part of the answer , a discussion of and introduction to the structure
    of  K , is now available at   http://cosy.com/K/CoSy/Y_K.htm  .
    A number of screens images of  K.CoSy  illuminate the concepts presented .
    
    I have now been working with  Kdb  co-resident with  K.CoSy  .  No problems .
    Having Kdb ambient , I can look at its 671 objects with 595 unique names
    " from the side " , if you if you will , and hope to avoid a lot of redundant
    work , and maximize compatibility . For instance , I have started using
    Kdb's  .d.ds  and  .d.sd  to convert timestamps to and from Kdb's format .
    ( Kdb's time handling functions are what I most covet . I know there's a lot
     of brilliant experience there . )
    
    So far , I have worked thru sequences to export dictionaries from  K.CoSy
    in the form of  .kdb  database files , and vise versa .
    I have been reminded of the virtues and limitations of the relational model ,
    ordered or not , which I have not dealt with since rewriting Xerox's WW
    forecasting system when I first came east back in 1980 .
    While it provides a useful discipline , it far more limited than  K's  natural
    hierarchical structure , made ambient by  K.CoSy .
    
    Life is getting more back to normal here at Peck Slip , tho I'm worried
    Con Ed may have designs on the wall holding their Haas tromp l'oeil mural of
    the Brooklyn Bridge which has graced my view all these years . I've uploaded
    a picture of what's happening to   http://cosy.com/home.htm  .
    
    Til next time ,  Hoping happy holidays  for all .

      From: Bob Armstrong Subject: Thoughts from Downtown Manhattan Date: Mon, 10 Dec 2001 08:06:11 -0500 To: The ancient game of "Dead Birds" between the Jahwehs and the Allahs among all you Israelis and Palestinians seems to be entering sudden death overtime . For the sake of peace , Display your realities on your website . On the front page , display graphs of cumulative body counts for the two teams . Break out dead , wounded , and property destroyed . Let us around the world be able to see at a glance who's ahead - Allah's kamikazes or Jahweh's luftwaffe . Make your facts as graphic as you can . Have your talking heads name the website as the place to go for details and facts . Organize ASSERTIVE but painfully peaceful stands , ala Ghandi , King , and Mandela at any place where religion is claimed as the reason for a right . Have the cameras running . See if you can promote any cooperative events with Israelis who also are fed up with this crap . While I think Bin Laden's attack on the global gathering place in my neighborhood was motivated as much by a hatred of open and creative life in general , as by any specific perceived inequity , I feel one of the US's great errors is to have anything more than a business relationship with any country which rejects our own First Amendment . -- Bob Armstrong -- http://CoSy.com -- 212-285-1864 http://CoSy.com/K/CoSy.htm : Rapid Quantitative Modeling http://CoSy.com/Homes : Building Affordable Homes in NYC 2001/12/08 13:07:37

    Jonah ,
    
    Whether you are dumbing yourself down in order have a hook for
    your column , or whether you truly have failed to appreciate the
    " do no harm " clause of the Libertarian Principle , the straw
    man you create has no substance other than flammability .
    I guess maybe you know this , and that's why you coined
    " Cultural Libertarian " to fracture the Principle into an
    attackable fragment .
    
    The Libertarian philosophy imposes an absolute moral code :
     the non initiation of the use of force or fraud .
    
    But it is also very modest in its goals . In accordance with the
    US First Amendment thrust that , while sticks and stones may break
    bones , thoughts and words don't , our aspiration is simply ,
    to paraphrase  Jefferson  and  Mills , to provide a structure for
    the deterrence of violations of these principles .
    
    Obviously any one who acts on a philosophy that
     " ' There is one god and Mohammed is his messenger ' .
       Agree with me or I will kill both of us "
    violates the Principle .
    Your avoidance of the fact renders several paragraphs
    of your column vacuous .
    
    Finally , and this is me speaking about my religion , not
    Libertarian political philosophy , the quote in your last
    paragraph ,
    
    > Chesterton pointed out that when a man stops believing
    > in God, he won't believe in nothing, he'll believe in anything.
    
    is total twaddle .  Mainly rational and abstract understanding
    of the foundations of our existence , the greatest insights of
    the brightest and most driven minds over the centuries up to
    the current day , has replaced "faith" in one or another ancient
    tome as the ultimate revelation of truth for all time - no
    matter how nonsensical .
    
    The profundity and awesome beauty and inter-connectedness of
    humanity's mathematical ( demonstrably true ) understanding of
    this world we wake up in , is far beyond the subtilty and
    depth of any ancient creed .  But , it is real hard work
    "groking" - to use Heinlein's word , subjugating your mind to ,
    these universal forms .  It is humbling .
    
    Religion , replacing "search" with "faith" , particularly among
    the monotheists , has been used since before the Crusades to split
    "us" from "them" , the "chosen" from the "un-" .
    
    Don't try to dismiss me and all of us who look on with horror at
    these continuing God v God holocausts  as "believing anything" .
    
    Look in a mirror .
