Suzuki Manji ~ Low Eb

Suzuki Manji
The Suzuki Manji features a Bamboo composite comb which produces a most exotic bluesy voice.
My heart is shaped by the sound of bamboo. Friends of this blog will know I am deeply fond of the Chinese Xiao flute and the infinite voices which resonate throughout its eternal chambers.

Hitherto, as a Blues Harpist on the side, I have likewise always been on the search for a wooden instrument, able to produce the natural resonances and tonal colours so commonly associated with a flute.

A decade later, after flirting with various wooden combs and cover plates, all of which would eventually warp and crack, little did I expect a Blues Harp to be created from actual Bamboo.

Furthermore, little did I expect it to keep its shape. In fact, the shape of the Suzuki Manji is a very special wonder indeed.

Stellar Quantum Pairing ~ The Entanglement & Superposition Of Our Sun & Moon

Stellar Quantum PairingThis article is the scientific sister thesis of the philoscientific thesis Galearthéa ~ The Cosmic Trinity & The Eternity Of The Earth, published previously.

It is important to read the previous article to gain a more wholesome understanding of how these two thesis relate.

The Cosmic Trinity states that both the Sun & Moon are in fact the same object, visible in two different locations of both time and space.

The philoscientific thesis explains that, one must accept the concept of Szion and thus the possibility of a fifth dimension, in order to understand how this came to be.

The fifth dimension is the eternal presence of God.

  • The Sun represents Life.
  • The Moon represents Death & Reincarnation.
  • The Earth represents Eternity.

Thus the Sun & Moon are bound unto Eternity.

The philoscientific thesis states how the Moon embodies the extinguished and regenerative future state of our future Sun, while the living presently active state of our Sun embodies the eternally kindling and regenerating state of our Moon.

A French Easter Bunny

Sunday 11th April 1993

The cat woke me up last night. It was jumping up and down on my bed. I didn’t get much sleep, so I stayed in bed until 11:30. Then, realising it’s Easter Sunday, I jumped out of bed with joy! I washed and dressed myself neatly, as I was expecting many chocky eggs.

“Bonjour,” said Mme. Chasseigne, “Comment vas tu?”
“Bonjour!” I replied, “Trés bien merci.”

Then Mattieu came along and presented to me a tiny little Easter egg. I opened it from the silver foil and tasted it… it was delicious! So small yet delicious!

“Merci!” I said, and Mattieu scuttled off back to his room.

As I journeyed towards the kitchen, I noticed through the gap in the door, where it was ajar, a very big shadow coming from the table and across the floor. I slowly pushed the door open and walked in.

Jesuit Chess ~ AI, Droidfish & Other Apps

Droidfish Jesuit Chess
Droidfish Chess engine for Android incorporating Jesuit Chess positional characteristics.
In time to come we hope a Chess computer of sorts will be available which is capable of processing Jesuit Chess algorithms. Whilst at this time there is none such computer, YllwChlk does have at least a solution of a kind.

Personally, I employ Droidfish for recreational, analytical and publishing use. It is a very good Chess engine with numerous features and even a selection of interface themes.

When playing Chess against Droidfish, it is possible to incorporate Jesuit Chess rules by a method of intervention in its computational processes.

This does not exactly create a Jesuit Chess ‘program’, since Droidfish does not actually compute these new rules, but it does allow the player to influence the logic continuum so that it absorbs Jesuit Chess behaviour.

It is at least a useful tool for Jesuit Chess enthusiasts who wish to simulate Jesuit Chess games through an AI interface.

ΙΗΣΟΥΙΤΗΣ ΣΚΑΚΙ ~ Jesuit Chess

Jesuit Chess
Jesuit Chess by Simon Jepps
I am not a Jesuit. Yet deep within my childhood soul, there is a Jesuit who will always be with me.

I believe that if we are to learn anything from Chess, it is that any new evolution of the game will already be a hidden treasure waiting to be discovered deep within its ever growing history.

What I mean by this is somewhat paradoxical.

On the one hand there are an infinite number of evolutionary possibilities for Chess, yet on the other, perhaps its only true evolution will be found deep within its own natural consciousness.

Whilst for centuries Scholars and Grandmasters alike have strived to evolve the game, it can be observed to have already evolved many times through the blossoming of its very own rules.

Thus, whilst my studies and essays about the next evolution of Chess focus on many concepts, for the most part, their primary focus has been to try and continue evolving the game without changing its Classical inventory.

This has always been a challenge and yet one I have always undertaken with the utmost passion, since in all truth it is a quietly shared belief amongst Chessicians, that whilst at first it may seem a paradox of suggestion, the next evolution of Chess will nevertheless maintain the sixty four square board.

Henceforth, the variant I am publishing here today is one such profundity of paradoxical resolution.

For an insight into why evolving Chess is actually a tremendous undertaking, you may also wish to read my other following selected articles and theoretical constructions.

An Understanding Of Mission Design
A Chessician’s in depth study of the mechanics of Chess and how these relate to an example evolution of the game.

You’re Nicked!

Saturday 10th April 1993

I wouldn’t say today was one of my better days. However, I did have a delicious breakfast of fried eggs, fried bacon and fried bread ~ a true fry-up. But I have to say, that was the only good thing about it.

Most of the family would be going on an outing today. Arnaud, myself, his younger of two brothers and both his parents.

We visited the centre of Bordeaux where for the most part we wandered the shopping centres and cafés. Pleasant as it may have seemed, but all was not good. Something about today was beginning to stir…

Galearthéa ~ The Cosmic Trinity & The Eternity Of The Earth

TCT Sun Moon & EarthSince ancient times civilisations from all over the world have harboured deeply philosophical beliefs about the origin and nature of our cosmos.

And even today, albeit amidst a dictatorship of the deprivation of natural consciousness, we still do.

The Cosmic Trinity is a supplementary teaching of Galearthéan cosmology, in that it is the most philoscientific of all astronomical curriculum and as such is to be regarded as an almost separate thesis.

This thesis adopts the theorem that Galearthéa, or our physical world, is both finite and contained, yet of a spiritual infinity.

When I say ‘finite’ and ‘contained’, I mean it has a size, shape and boundary beyond which we cannot physically pass.

Yet when I say of a ‘spiritual infinity’, I mean it has a being, nature and timelessness beyond which we can transcend God.
