Do you know what happened to Mark Harris?

I don’t really know the full detail of this event so I’ll just quote a message sent from Mark Harris to my classmate explaining the story from his perspective

"Chewy

Shocking news for me, too.

Whatever crap rumours are circulating. I want you to know that SIM fired me, with 1 week’s notice. They wanted me to convert to be an Associate Lecturer, but I said “f&*^o%$” which surprised the hell out of them.

Tell Gundave and all the others the truth. I would have NEVER left you. It was not my choice.

M”

and I heard from a classmate of mine that Mark has already returned back to England.

Just curious, are you also one of his students? Or a friend of him?

EVERY TIME SOMEONE BRINGS UP THE LIBRARY OF ALEXANDRIA I GET SO ANGRY.

but why

Because it got burned. All of that knowledge, lost forever.

The library was destroyed over 1000’s of years ago. The library consisted of thousands of scrolls and books about mathematics, engineering, physiology, geography, blueprints, medicine, plays, & important scriptures. Thinkers from all over the Mediterranean used to come to Alexandria to study.Most of the major work of civilization up until that point was lost. If the library still survived till this day, society may have been more advanced and we would sure know more about the ancient world.

uh well okay

hello im ely i like to pretend im a cool funny talking animal or something silly.this blog happened because a friend of mine was using an edit of that cat’s face and I found the stock photo for it. originally it was an edit on my skype profile where i had it meowing at a jar of peanuts for whatever reason i made a blog where i could post all the edits i made of that cat, mostly for my friends following my mainblog to see

im kind of just a huge dork that tries to be cool /w everyone, my interests varying a bunch from videogames to annimay and mango & just about anything i guess, i used to voice act & draw too but both don’t happen much nowadays. i spend most of my days talking to cool people on the cyberworld & playing final fantasy xiv, and photoshopped cats.

i really like robots, and stuff like that, from gundam to big-o to gurren lagann & gunbuster. when it comes to videogames (ye old capcom), Konami & Squeenix are what i’ve noticed I play most, I also really really like shoot’em ups, Gradius, R-Type, Touhou, etc etc. im also a big weeb so ofc i like mango and anniemays

but yeah thats the gist of it hi

you like R-Type and the Big O, holy shit are you a doppleganger

op replying here; YA R-Type is so good to me oh man i replayed delta & final recently and it’s just always the best

and then there’s The Big-O, holy shit dont get me started

aw right man now we’re talking! I like shmup games as well albeit not really good at it and also got some interests in mechas, especially the Real Robot genre like VOTOMS and UC-timeline gundam

John Conway first theorized that it would be impossible to create a forever-expanding universe using these rules, which was proven wrong by a team at MIT, creating the “glider gun,” which is featured in the third gif. 

Since then, thanks to computers, people all over the world have added new designs to the database, creating amazingly complex designs.

For example Andrew J. Wade created a design which replicates itself every 34 million generations! Furthermore it is also a spaceship (permanently moving pattern) and not only that, it was also the first spaceship that did not travel purely diagonally or horizontally/vertically! These types of spaceships are now appropriately named Knightships.

The simulation has some interesting properties, for example it has a theoretical maximum speed information can travel. Or simply, light speed - as that is the limit in our own universe. The limit is set to 1 cell per generation - after all how can you create something further than 1 cell away in one generation if you can only effect your immediate neighbours? And yet you can get things like the ‘stargate’ (Love the name, huge SG fan here.) which allows a space ship to travel 11 cells in just 6 generations.

Some smart people have even designed calculators, prime number generators and other incredibly complex patterns.
