From here:

A-L-E-X:Source of the post They both caught staph infections in hospitals, weird thing was, my mom's was in 1990 and my dad's in 2014.  It's a problem that still hasn't been properly addressed in hospitals.  And now we have skin-eating bacterial infections that seem to be on the rise also (as well a brain parasitic amoeba.)

Sorry to hear that about your folks. I know a few people that have had similar stories. Yes, staph infections and the like are certainly epidemic in many 'first-world' countries. It's the consequence of the rapidly-resistant new strains of infections and the public health-care funding cuts - I recently visited a rural hospital for work that didn't even have a professional janitor on duty! When I asked them about this they simply said that they couldn't afford to employ one.

Thanks and they dont use proper sterilization procedures either :(  Besides the rise in antibiotic resistance we're also seeing a rise in pesticide resistance (superbugs vs superweeds lol), so we're having to use more and more toxic pesticides.  I watched a documentary on PBS last year that mentioned how organic farming is much more sustainable since it retains 25% more nutrients (rather than them running off during rainstorms) and is much less harsh in the usage of chemical pesticides and fertilizers.

On the Discord server, Vigo Hornblower and I started playing around with taking the Fourier transform of various things.  Naturally, the idea popped up to take the transform of the Space Engine Logo:

The result:


Image



I thought it looked very cool. :)  Like a telescopic image of a quasar or something.


My avatar image is also a Fourier transform, of sorts.  But it's a photograph, not a computer rendered image.  It's the diffraction pattern formed by a laser passing through 3 tiny holes in a close triangular arrangement.  When light passes through an aperture, it diffracts and interferes with itself and ends up producing a pattern which is described in the exact same way as the Fourier transform of the aperture.  Nature works in marvelous waves.

Very cool. What did you use to get the image? Some sort of program? The wiki link you gave didn't explain that part.

That reminds me of how spiral galaxies resemble the graphical depiction of the Fibonacci series!  And how the large scale structure of the universe resembles the structure of our brains (or if you want to go in the other direction how slime molds create structures that resemble human architecture such as subway systems.)

Nature is fractal!

I used a free Fast Fourier Transform software which you can find here:

It is very fun to play with. :)

Interestingly enough, just the crescent of the SE Logo looks like an accretion or protoplanetary disk edge-on:

I found this lovely poem by Robert Macfarlane in the book 'The Lost Words':

LARK:

Little astronaut, where have you gone, and how is your
song still torrenting on?

Aren't you short of breath as you climb higher, up there
in the thin air, with your magical song still tumbling on?

Right now I need you, for my sadness has come again
and my heart grows flatter - so I'm coming to find
you by following your song,

Keeping on into deep space, past dying stars
and exploding suns, to where at last, little astronaut,
you sing your heart out to all dark matter.
