The Roman Number for Zero?

863-NB-Number-0.jpgThe romans themselves didn’t have a number Zero , what they did have was a blank space, They got that from the Babylonians. The actual concept of zero as a numeric symbol comes out of India

The concept of zero arrived centuries later when the Arabic the concept of Zero did not come about until the 14th Century. It radically changed mathematics..The word nulla (the Latin word meaning “none”) was used by medieval computists in lieu of 0. Dionysius Exiguus was known to use nulla alongside Roman numerals in 525. About 725, Bede or one of his colleagues used the letter N, the initial of nulla, in a table of epacts, all written in Roman numerals.

Angels

An angel is a supernatural being or spirit found in various religions and mythologies. In Abrahamic religions and Zoroastrianism, angels are often depicted as benevolent celestial beings who act as intermediaries between God or Heaven and Earth, or as guardian spirits or a guiding influence
Books

Works of literature, or a main division of such a work
Books new reading

A codex (in modern usage) is the first information repository that modern people would recognize as a “book”: leaves of uniform size bound in some manner along one edge, and typically held between two covers made of some more robust material.

Christian

Although all of them have their historical roots in Christian theology and tradition, and although most would identify themselves as Christian, many would not identify others within the larger category as Christian
Death

Death is the termination of all biological functions that sustain a living organism. Art is a diverse range of human activities and the products of those activities, usually involving imaginative or technical skill. In their most general form these activities include the production of works of art, the criticism of art, the study of the history of art, and the aesthetic dissemination of art.

Metaphysics

The metaphysician attempts to clarify the fundamental notions by which people understand the world, e.g., existence, objects and their properties, space and time, cause and effect, and possibility. A central branch of metaphysics is ontology, the investigation into the basic categories of being and how they relate to each other. Another central branch of metaphysics is cosmology, the study of the origin, fundamental structure, nature, and dynamics of the universe.

Mind

A mind is the set of cognitive faculties that enables consciousness, perception, thinking, judgement, and memory, a characteristic of humans, but which also may apply to other life forms.
Names

Names can identify a class or category of things, or a single thing, either uniquely, or within a given context. A personal identifies, not necessarily uniquely, a specific individual human
Peace

peace also suggests sincere attempts at reconciliation, the existence of healthy or newly healed interpersonal or international relationships, prosperity in matters of social or economic welfare, the establishment of equality, and a working political order that serves the true interests of all.

Philosophy

Philosophy is the study of the general and fundamental nature of reality, existence, knowledge, values, reason, mind, and language

Tarot

Like the common deck of playing cards, the tarot has four suits (which vary by region, being the French suits in Northern Europe, the Latin suits in Southern Europe, and the German suits in Central Europe). Each of these suits has pip cards numbering from one (or Ace) to ten and four face cards (King, Queen, Knight, and Jack/Knave) for a total of 14 cards. In addition, the tarot has a separate 21-card trump suit and a single card known as the Fool. Depending on the game, the Fool may act as the top trump or may be played to avoid following suit.
Thought

Although thought is a fundamental human activity familiar to everyone, there is no generally accepted agreement as to what thought is or how it is created. Somehow, thoughts arise in the mind from the product of subconscious brain processing.

Virtue
A virtue is a positive trait or quality deemed to be morally good and thus is valued as a foundation of principle and good moral being. Personal virtues are characteristics valued as promoting collective and individual greatness. The opposite of virtue is vice.

This week’s featured psychic is: Chris

As a given, or first name, Christopher PRONOUNCED: KRIS-tə-fər has been in use since the 10th century. In Denmark the name was borne by three kings (their names are usually spelled Christoffer), and included the 15th-century Christopher of Bavaria who also ruled Norway and Sweden.

In English, Christopher may be abbreviated as “Chris” or “Kit”, the latter the more common abbreviation until the later 20th century. Another less common abbreviation “Topher” has come into wider use in the U.S.

Christopher decided to serve God by helping people across a dangerous river, where people often died trying to cross. One day a child asked for help to cross when the river was high with floodwaters. Christopher attempted the crossing, and found the child to be far more heavy than he looked. He finally made it to the other side, and told the child, “You were so heavy! It was as if I carried the whole world across the river!” And the child replied, “You didn’t carry the world, but the maker of it,” and revealed himself to be Christ in disguise.

St. Christopher Carrying the Christ Child, by Hieronymus Bosch, 1480-1490.

Thus, the name Christophoros, or “bearer of Christ”. And thus, the common reference to Christopher as the “patron saint of travelers”.

Creepy sound recordings before disks

Speaking of sounds in cylinders recovered from the abyss of time, they received their share of the uncanny, like every new medium, both in their wax and tinfoil storage media.  We noted the cylinders in Dracula, and I’ve always wondered just how much madhouse ambient noise would make it into the speeches of Seward and Van Helsing.

What about other examples of uncanny wax cylinder recordings?

There’s H. P. Lovecraft’s “Whisperer in Darkness” (1931), which features not only a spooky recording, but an ironic and posthumanist parody of cylinder recording at its conclusion.

Here’s a contemporary, nonfiction response to Edison’s machine:

“this machine bears a paradox: it identifies a voice, fixes the deceased (or mortal) person, registers the dead and thus perpetuates his living testimony, but also achieves his automatic reproduction in abstentia: my self would live without me–horror of horrors!”

Things About The Moon

There are few things more satisfying than looking up into the sky on a clear night and seeing the moon. Whether it’s bright and full or partially hidden in shadow, there’s something cool about watching the moon pass through its many phases. We start learning about our moon and how it works at an early age, so we must know it all by now, right?

Well, maybe not. Here are a few facts about the moon that you probably weren’t taught in school.

1. It might be Earth’s twin.

Some people consider our moon to be the Earth’s twin! Due to it’s large size and strange orbit, there are a few people out there who actually think of our moon as its own planet.

2. It’s been used as a burial ground.

While this person technically isn’t buried on the moon, the ashes of former NASA scientist Eugene Shoemaker were scattered across the moon’s surface. It was his dying wish.

3. It might have been inhabited once.

Some photos of the moon’s surface show things that NASA can’t explain. Some believe that these phenomena are evidence of previous inhabitation. Since the photos are so grainy and obscured, however, it’s hard to tell exactly what the images are showing. Did an advanced race live on the moon long before humans started poking around up there? We may never know.

4. Shadows are darker on the moon.

When astronauts first started visiting the moon, they noticed that their shadows were much darker than usual. This causes numerous problems for researchers to this day, since these dark shadows sometimes make it hard for astronauts to see what they’re doing up there. It’s hard to avoid stepping into a crater when your shadow is too dark and dense to see through.

5. Moon dust can cause breathing problems.

The moon’s chalky debris is so fine that it has been known to move right through astronauts’ helmets and into their noses and mouths.

6. Playing in the moon’s low level of gravity isn’t as fun as it seems.

It may seem like fun to jump around in low gravity, but it has actually caused a ton of problems for astronauts, especially back in the early days of space exploration. Back then, their suits were so heavy that they were forced to move painfully slowly using kangaroo-like leaps.

7. We have earthquakes down here, and the moon has moonquakes up there.

If you thought that the Earth was the only planet to experience tremors, you’re wrong. The moon, which isn’t even a planet, has moonquakes that can reach a magnitude of 5.5 on the Richter scale.

8. People litter on the moon, too.

On the moon, there is an alarmingly large amount of trash left over from experiments. Some astronauts have even left their poo bags up there.

9. Some people believe that the moon’s phases affect sleep patterns.

It is believed that the moon actually affects how humans sleep. Different phases of the moon’s cycle cause us to rest better or worse than others.

10. Researchers still don’t really know how the moon came to be.

Scientists actually don’t have any solid ideas about where the moon came from. There are a few guesses, but its origins remain a mystery.
