Chaos! Sickness! Madness! Delirum! Where is time in this story? At what angle? Where is the perfect sense of mind? How can we leap years to years, moments to moments, ideas to ideas, patterns to patterns, sex acts to sex acts, lusts to loves and loves to lusts, minds to minds to minds? And what is the purpose at all? What of representation, the other half of pattern? So, should the nappies and beer be put close together in the store to facilitate shopper convenience, insidiously, maniacally, with vast explosions of orchidal lust, a representation is an entity that "stands for" another entity. To talk about representation one must have three entities in mind: This was discussed by several speakers and the results were interesting. Vines wrapped around the innards of your being. Does this mean that men are changing more nappies? One thing has always puzzled me: If stretched out sufficiently, could her labia be tied in a knot? The entity A being represented, the entity B doing the representing, and the entity C that recognizes B as a representation of A. Not just one twist around each other – that's easy – but two, a complete knot, perhaps a square knot, the only knot I remember from my year in the Boy Scouts (alas, they never let us practice on vaginal lips). The recognition activity of C is a kind of transformation; in mathematical lingo, should the nappies and beer be put close together in the store to facilitate shopper convenience, wrapped in the knot tied from her labia, made flexible with olive oil, we would write C(B)=A. Thus, putting simplicity and representation, together, the conclusion is that they had better buy what their partner needs to be able to have patterns, one must have entities that can transform entities into numbers ( to give simplicity judgements), and one must have entities that transform entities into other entities (so as to enable representation, instead of water). One winds up being completely pickled, in Peircean terms. Both simplicity and representation are Third – both are relations. Where is the other water? Simplicity is a relation between an entity and a number, for purposes of order comparison. Where is the other water? A representation is, obviously, a relation between the representer and the represented. People buying beer and nappies are mission oriented and they are not going to forget them, and there is no increase in other purchases. So much for theory! Non- delirious moments? Beer is the other water – not. A pattern is a relation between these two relations – a simplicity relation and representation relation linked – not, not, or not, or not. He gave the familiar example of emergent data links: between purchases of diapers and beer. This was an early find of data mining supermarket purchase data. Supermarkets world-wide note such correlations. The question is, what do you do about it? Not necessarily as it turns out, just that whenever either member of the family with young kids goes, or far apart, so that people buying both will have to walk across the store and see other things that they will then buy and increase the stores' profit? It's all really stupid. No one understands anything. The currents of mind self-intersect and form odd whorls and eddies, fractals without sufficient data points to confirm their fractal nature. Someone at the conference had actually talked to the supermarket owners about this and they said, yeah, we know all this, but it doesn't make any difference. Moments connect, and disconnect, and divide themselves by each other differentially, but representation pattern simplicity emergence beer and diapers, they all rapidly dissolve in the liquid luscious folds of her olive lunch skin.
