I'm in a boring meeting, so I decided to search for fun old threads and came upon this: The Buddhist Dan T. thread

It was probably the pinnacle of my H&R posting.

Just because it randomly came up in the YouTube sidebar, the Eagles big hell freezes over comeback concert is now longer ago than the Eagles debut was from that concert. ( by over two years)

So I was trying to explain layover to an engineer who thought our data was a problem because it didn't look right in Google Earth, almost undoubtedly because they were expecting our data to line up with the rooftops in the aerial imagery and for tall buildings the rooftop can appear in the imagery several meters from where it would actually line up on the ground, since the camera is rarely perfectly over the building. It's a parallax effect. When an image is taken looking down towards the ground, a rooftop or the top of any other tall structure will be displaced away from the camera relative to the base of the building/object.

This in turn led me to think about the fact that the opposite actually happens in radar and lidar (although lidar data is processed into discrete 3D points in space so it's not something you ever see) because instead of passively focusing incoming light to a flat sensor/film, it's sending out an active pulse and measuring return time (usually interferometrically). The radar beam reaches the top of the building before it reaches the base of the building, so when plotted as a semi-raw image, tall objects seem to smear towards the sensor. It's an odd effect if you're used to looking at passive imagery.

So in another step, I started thinking about the energy loss in the reflection and any time that the reflection might take and whether that would effect the final interferometric measurement of the travel time. The photon has to lose energy to the reflecting surface through conservation of momentum and thus of energy, and there has to be SOME interaction time. A quick look says yes there's a tiny redshift and a tiny delay, but the delay is smaller than the uncertainty of the photon's location so that's no big deal. I couldn't find a pre-made calculation of the actual redshifting, but it can't be big, either.

So the last bit of rabbit hole before I got myself back to work, I started thinking about astronomical redshifting, and what the closest object might be with observable red-shifting. Theoretically, if i understand inflationary theory and dark energy well enough, which I don't, inflation should be affecting everything on every scale, as it's spacetime itself that's expanding. But I can't find any mention of redshift for anything closer than a galaxy (some of which are actually blueshifted because they're moving toward our galaxy at a greater rate than inflation would be moving them away.

And what effect does this have on oppression of indigenous peoples and how can inflationary theory be decolonized and incorporate other ways of knowing like shamanism or like pangolin scales or some shit?

Aww man. I'm going over an SDS for a new cosmetic pigment we want to use at work, and in the Toxicological section, there's a long list of rabbit and rat testing with results.

I know we need to do this, but it still makes me sad.

The Hubble constant (there's some debate now about whether it is really a 'constant') is around 70 kps per mega-parsec*. At distances inside the Milky Way, that works out to less than one kps, which would be lost in the third decimal place of the measureable proper motion of stars inside our galaxy - around 200 kps relative to the core.
And what effect does this have on oppression of indigenous peoples and how can inflationary theory be decolonized and incorporate other ways of knowing like shamanism or like pangolin scales or some shit?
Hubble is a dead white male. What more needs to be said?

When touch-typing, I've been really bad recently about typing homophones when I clearly no the difference. Literally that 'no' was unintentional, and I started to go back and correct it but figured it was illustrative.

For all the "Ugh, white women" talk among race-conscious people on the internet, white women sure did love The Oprah Winfrey show.

I feel like she's the healing voice our culture needs right now.
