"J.A.R.V.I.S. (Stands for Just A Rather Very Intelligent System),
also stylized as JARVIS, or Jarvis, is a highly advanced
computerized A.I. developed by Tony Stark, and was voiced
by actor Paul Bettany, to manage almost everything, especially
matters related to technology, in Tony's life."

Happy birthday, Mr. Bettany.

The situation is rather different when the
underlying Galois field has two rather than
three elements… See Galois Geometry.

Du Sucre

http://passionforcinema.com/sapphire/ on "Bleu" —  Jan. 9, 2010 —

"An extremely long lens on an insert of a sugar cube, dipped just enough, in a small cup of coffee, so that it gradually seeps in the dark beverage. Four and a half seconds of unadulterated cinematic bliss."

Preforming

Filed under: General — Tags: , , — m759 @ 11:00 AM

Photo caption in NY Times  today— a pianist "preforming" in 1967. (See today's previous post.)

The pianist's life story seems in part to echo that of Juliette Binoche in the film "Bleu." Binoche appeared in this journal yesterday, before I had seen the pianist in today's Times  obituaries. The Binoche appearance was related to the blue diamond in the film "Duelle " (Tuesday morning's post) and the saying of Heraclitus "immortals mortal, mortals immortal" (Tuesday afternoon's post).

This somewhat uncanny echo brings to mind Nabokov

Life Everlasting—based on a misprint!
I mused as I drove homeward: take the hint,
And stop investigating my abyss?
But all at once it dawned on me that this
Was the real point, the contrapuntal theme;
Just this: not text, but texture; not the dream
But topsy-turvical coincidence,
Not flimsy nonsense, but a web of sense.

Whether sense or nonsense, the following quotation seems relevant—

"Archetypes function as living dispositions, ideas in the Platonic sense, that preform and continually influence our thoughts and feelings and actions." –C.G. Jung in Four Archetypes: Mother, Rebirth, Spirit, Trickster, the section titled "On the Concept of the Archetype."

That section is notable for its likening of Jungian archetypes to Platonic ideas and to axial systems of crystals. See also "Cubist Tune," March 18 —

"Budd Schulberg, who wrote the award-winning screenplay for 'On the Waterfront' and created a classic American archetype of naked ambition, Sammy Glick, in his novel What Makes Sammy Run?, died on Wednesday. He was 95…."
