Vintage Science Fiction

Vintage Science fiction when put to print so long ago was not faction as it is thought of today. That’s fact based on fiction. Now we can look back at that science fiction and compare it to the present reality and find a correlation to a fact. The material was found in the tombs of the public archives because the story’s copyright was not renewed.

Stairway to the Stars.

It was a stairway leading down into the ocean, but it also led out into space—indirectly.

Stairway to the Stars – Larry Shaw

The situation had the aspects of a burlesque on Grand Hotel.

This vintage science fiction story fixes itself around a invention combination of color television and super-radar presenting a view of the ocean floor only to discover a matter-transmitter gate between two worlds.

The Galactic Federation shuts down the gate and the scientist/fishermen representing Earth were told the only real trouble with Earth people was that they have a tremendous inferiority complex, collectively and individually but, they’ll undoubtedly be accepted by the Federation; once Earth develops space ( warp ) travel.  Just at the moment, Earth was at a crossroads, ready to jump in either direction, blowing themselves up or taking the big step into space travel.

Yes, Earth may be a sort of fenced-off area, so far as other intelligent races of the galaxy are concerned. But not for the grandiose reasons that some have imagined . . . but there’s hope.

Story concepts: star-gate, robot, first contact, prime directive of non interference and the Federation.

The story centres around a coffin manufacturing business.

It all began when the new bookkeeping machine of a large Midwestern coffin manufacturer slipped a cog, or blew a transistor, or something.  It was fantastic that the error—one of two decimal places—should enjoy a straight run of okays, human and mechanical, clear down the line; but when the figures clacked out at the last clacking-out station, there it was.  The figures were now sacred; immutable; and it was doubtful whether the President of the concern or the Chairman of the Board would have dared question them—even if either of those two gentlemen had been in town.

With one thing and another, the economy hadn’t been exactly in overdrive that year, and predictions for the Christmas season were gloomy.  Early retail figures bore them out. Gift buying dribbled along feebly until Thanksgiving, despite brave speeches by the Administration.  The holiday passed more in self-pity than in thankfulness among owners of gift-oriented businesses.  Then, on Friday following Thanksgiving, the coffin ads struck. Various mottos were advertised worldwide:

  • “The Gift That Will Last More Than a Lifetime”
  •  “Do You Want Your Widow to Be Half-Safe?”
  •  “I Dreamt I Was Caught Dead Without My Virgin-form Casket!”

Newspapers, magazines and every other medium added to the assault, never letting it cool.  It was the most horrendous campaign, for sheer concentration, that had ever battered at the public mind.  The public reeled, blinked, shook its head to clear it, gawked, and rushed out to buy and then holding “popping-off parties” ( with the contention to honor those living before they eventually kicked the can, so to speak ).

The casket industry had by now almost completely automated box-making and grave-digging with some interesting assembly lines and packaging arrangements; there still remained the jobs of management, distribution, consolidation and franchising.  It isn’t hard to imagine the reactions of the rest of the world . . .

Story concepts: business, computer glitch, life and death.


What if the computer glitch was found in time. What then?

——————-

The Finance Department had a check of data integrity or audit.  To preserve profit, the Human Resources department was told to initiate company procedure to size – down across the board; meaning all departments effected.  Without warning of layoff, the Payroll department was obligated to pay a severance payout based on tenure or years of service.  The Budget Forecasting department must of been consulted after the Costing department generated a forecasted scenario . . .

The gist of the corporate machine was as outlined:

The Success Machine by Henry Slesar

Mechanical brains are all the rage these days, so General Products just had to have one.  But the blamed thing almost put them out of business.  Why?  It had no tact.  It insisted upon telling the truth!

The Personnelovac winked, chittered, chortled, chuckled, and burped a card into the slot. “Oh, Lord. Let this one be all right!” He read the card. It was pink.

“Subject #34580. Apt. Rat. 34577. Psych. Clas. 45. Last Per. Vac. An. 3/5/98. Rat. 19. Cur. Rat. 14.  Analysis: Subject demonstrates decreased mechanical coordination.  Decrease in work-energy per man-hour. Marked increase in waste-motion due to subject’s interest in non-essential activities such as horseracing.  Indication of hostility towards superiors.”

“Recommendation: Dismiss them.”

The Personnel Manager sat down and placed the card in front of him. Then, making sure he was unobserved, he broke a company rule and began to Think.

Something’s wrong, he thought.  Something is terribly wrong.  Twenty-four pink cards in the last month.  Twenty-four out of forty this month.  That’s a batting average of — He tried to figure it out with a pencil, but gave it up as a bad job.  Maybe I’ll run it through the Averagovac, he thought.  But why bother?  It’s obvious that it’s high. There’s obviously SOMETHING WRONG.

“Nothing wrong? You call twenty-four firings out of forty nothing?” The old man stood up, still holding the core of his apple.

“ACT is our motto. ACT is our password. ACT is our key to success. And why not?  The Brains do the thinking.  All of us put together couldn’t think so effectively, so perfectly, so honestly as the Brains.  They take the orders, designate raw materials, equipment, manpower.  They schedule our work.  They analyze our products.  They analyze our people.”

“I’m rounding up all the aptitude records of the department heads. They’ll be in your hands in the next couple of days. Feed ’em in! Root ’em out! Spot the deadwood, ACT!”

“I was just getting around to yours. But I figured I’d better make sure the Brain was functioning properly.” He grew confidential. “You know, that darned machine has been firing everyone lately.”

Eagerly, the Personnel Manager collated the records of the Personnelovac. They were far more complex than any employee record, and it took the manager the better part of an hour.

“Subject #PV8. Mech. Rat. 9987. Mem. Rat. 9995. Last Per. Vac. An. None. Cur. Rat. 100.  Analysis: Subject operating at maximum efficiency. Equipped to perform at peak level.  Is completely honest and does not exhibit bias, prejudice, or sentiment in establishing personnel evaluations. Cumulative increase in mnemonic ability.  Analytic ability improving.”

“However,” it read, “because of mechanistic approach to humanistic evaluation, subject displays inability to incorporate human equation in analytical computation, resulting in technically accurate but humanistically incorrect deductions.  Recommendation: Dismiss them.”

Any moment he expected to hear the President’s angry voice over the inter-com.  ( The HR computer just dismissed the Chairman of the Board. ) His anxiety made him fumble, but at last, the job was done.

What if society accepted computer decision without question . . .

Two Plus Two Makes Crazy- W. Sheldon

Walt Sheldon is bitter-bright in this imaginative short satire of Man’s sell-out by a group of staunch believers in the infallibility of numbers. The following brief is based on that premise.

OUR NEW TYRANT–THE COMPUTER.  The article complained that some of the new labor and food regulations were the result of conscious reasoning on the part of The Computer.  Devices were building the Computer bigger and bigger and bigger at the expense of ordinary workers.

The Computer could do no wrong.  Then it was asked a simple little question by a simple little man. “Essentially each computer is the same, but adjusted to translate problems into the special terms of the division it serves.”

He considered himself a master of the technique of building a career in Computer City–he knew how to stay within the limits of directives and regulations and still make decisions, or rather to relay computer decisions that kept his responsibility to a minimum.

“But is there any real central control, say in case of a breakdown or something of that sort?”

“Of course, of course,” said Krayton, answering the question.

“It’s never necessary to use the All circuit. But we could very easily in case of a great emergency.”

“The All circuit puts every machine in the city to work on any selection-problem that’s fed into our master control here.  Each machine will give its answer in its own special terms, but actually they will all work on the same problem.  To use a grossly simple example, let us say we wish to know the results of two-and-two, but we wish to know it in terms of total security.  That is, we wish to know that two-plus-two means twice as many nourishment units for the Department of Foods, twice as many weapons for the Department of War, but is perhaps not necessarily true according to the current situational adjustment in the Department of Public Information.”

“At any rate, we would set up our problem on the master, pushing the button Two, then the button Plus, and the button Two again as on a primitive adding machine.  Then we would merely throw the All switch.  A short time later the total answer to our problem would be relayed back from every computer, and the cross-comparison factors canceled out, so that we would have the result in terms of the familiar Verdict Statement.  And, as everyone knows, the electronically filed Verdict Statements make the complete record of directives for the controlled behavior of our society.”

The Computer itself had issued a memo in the matter of public thought control;

 " When a brain is faced with two absolutely equal alternatives; complete breakdown invariably results."

Concepts: computer, control, decision,

The story was published in 1954 and was found buried in the public domain; for the enjoyment of future generations.

Energy Shot Review

Product Review of an Energy Drink

According to source, the idea of energy shots started decades ago in Japan, where small “tonics” became very popular among consumers who were served highly concentrated carbonation drinks.

With the introduction of energy drinks as of the late 1980s, the efficacy of these energy shots started to travel the world as a new product format.  In 2003, the founder of 5-Hour Energy discovered an energy drink at a natural products trade show and formulated a similar product reducing the content from 16 to 2 ounces but keeping the energizing effects.  Finance credits them with largely creating the energy shot market.  By 2008, there were over 25 brands offering energy shots in the US alone. In 2009, a major energy drink producer Red Bull  launched an energy shot.

By 2011, energy shots became so popular that 5-Hour Energy Image result for energy shot

sold $1 billion of their product at retail.

Although originally marketed in the US, energy shots are also becoming popular in other parts of the world such as Europe, Asia and Australia. The products were targeted at customers who seek high efficacy with little liquid intake and included truck drivers and students. One word of caution, “Dilute the shot” for best results.

The product under endorsement was Red Rain Energy . The frat parties they  sponsor, as seen under their web page photo gallery, were promotional.

The small bottle product in question contained caffeine, choline and taurine. TAURINE was an amino acid and a building block of protein. CHOLINE was necessary in the structure of cell membranes, protected livers from accumulating fat and as the precursor molecule for the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, etc. CAFFEINE, as the only addictive was a naturally occurring alkaloid, found in common coffee and tea.

I found the product available over the counter. The product was inexpensive. The product was not a steroid. The product was loaded with B vitamins. I personally used this product when attention to detail and awareness was necessary; around machines, on the job as a night guard and in study.

The can contained 250 ml. and the small bottle was 60 ml.

Zero Point Energy

Zero Point Energy Module

A Fuel Cell is composed of common elements.  The Planetary Encyclopedia Wikipedia said there were 23 types of fuel cells all directed at power.

A lot of people are still in the dark because of the weather.  A back up alternative and/or remote portable generator power source was one alternative to the Dark Side but there’s another alternative with Research & Development.

Common Fuel and Oxidizing Agents exists in alkaline and electric storage types; mainly Hydrogen and Oxygen.  How about other common sources like Natural Gas and Chlorine or any of the other halogens?!?

What the Scientists Said

Sir Oliver Lodge (1851-1940) the radio pioneer, said further, " . . . the amount of atomic energy stored in one ounce of chlorine could keep a transatlantic steamer going full speed for a week !! The explosion of a few pounds of material could be enough to shatter a continent !!  Radium, a most concentrated source of energy, was found to break up atoms from x-ray use.  The ATOM breaks up of its own accord over thousands of years, shooting off the fragments at speeds which make a rifle bullet a snail in comparison.  A radium is like a two-ton gun firing a 100 pound shot, recoiling similar to uranium which fires off 4 such projectiles in order to become radium.  The alpha particle of helium is fired off at the speed of 10,000 miles a second, producing heat.  The beta particle was found to be an electron, the fundamental unit of electricity and seen to repel each other.  An atom is a miniature solar system; the sun being the central positive nucleus and the revolving system like planets.  Electrons travel at the speed of light- 186,000 miles a second. 

(Popular Science 1920's)

The speed of light converted to metric was 300,000 kilometers per second as the ultimate speed limit; until you add energy to make it go even faster.  One percent of the speed of light was 2,200 km/sec. which would get it around the Earth in 18 seconds.

Too Much Energy, You Say !!

Zero-point energy or ground state energy was the lowest possible energy that a quantum mechanical system could have.  Unlike in classical mechanics, quantum systems constantly fluctuated in their lowest energy state; due to the Heisenberg uncertainty principle.  As well as atoms and molecules, the empty space of the vacuum has these unique properties.  According to Quantum Field Theory, the universe can be thought of not as isolated particles but with continuous fluctuating fields: matter fields, whose quanta are fermions and force fields, whose quanta are bosons.  All these fields have zero-point energy.  These fluctuating zero-point fields lead to a kind of reintroduction of an aether in physics, since some systems can detect the existence of this energy.  However this aether is not referred to as a physical medium, if it is to be the Lorentz invariant; such that there is no contradiction with Einstein‘s theory of special relativity.

( source: Wikipedia )

Information Particle Physics puts aside all these great scientists of the past and tests another theory in Quantum.

Used by NASA and the military,  the government research created an open public domain on fuel cell research showing them to be faster to refuel, more energy efficient and pollution free.

A fuel cell is an electrochemical cell that converts the chemical energy from a fuel into electricity through an electrochemical reaction of hydrogen-containing fuel with oxygen or another oxidizing agent. Fuel cells can produce electricity continuously for as long as fuel and oxygen ( or another oxidizing agent ) are supplied.

Scheme of a proton-conducting fuel cell -Wikipedia
____________
Earlier Comparison
    • Newton’s third law of motion says, to every action there is an equal and contrary reaction or the two actions are equal and contrary reaction.
    • In a rocket, the small mass and great velocity of the discharged explosive mixture of hydrogen and oxygen are equal to the larger mass and smaller velocity of the rocket.
    • We can create breathable air by driving stale air through limewater and heating potassium chlorate to liberate oxygen from the chemical combination.
What’s Going On Here?
Fuel is fed into the cell and broken into positive hydrogen atoms and negative electrons useful for energy.   The hydrogen atom weighs nearly 2000 times as much as the negative charged electron leaving the difference in the proton;  meaning it has the same charge as the electron but is smaller. One can refer to the electromagnetic theory of mass.  When air is mixed with the fuel, in this case hydrogen, the atoms are reformed into water.  In summary, the proton-conducting fuel cell uses the most abundant element in the universe hydrogen; on Earth it comprises about 13% before purification.  Hydrogen blends with the second most commonest element on Earth – Oxygen.  The only pollutant is pure water, clean and useful.  A Circle Logic in the making.

A/2017 U1 is most likely of interstellar origin.
This animation shows the path of A/2017 U1, which is an asteroid — or perhaps a comet — as it passed through our inner solar system in September and October 2017.  From analysis of its motion, scientists calculate that it probably originated from outside of our solar system.

A short story was published in Analog Magazine in 1963 that might explain the fuel cell concept better:

The following is a short review of the finer points from his open domain contribution to chemistry.

A man will always be willing to buy something he wants and believes in, even if it is impossible, rather than something he believes is possible.  So . . . sell him what he thinks he wants!

Hydrogen Fusion . . .

The examiner drew a symbolic electronic circuit.  Somewhere in the circuit, instead of drawing the component that is supposed to be there, he drew a Little Black Box.  Then he defined the wave-form, voltage, and amperage entering the circuit and defined whatever was coming out.  The million dollar question:  What was in the Little Black Box?

Except in the simplest of cases, there was never an absolute answer.  The question was counted as correct if the student puts into the Little Black Box a component or sub-circuit which produced the effect desired.  The value of the answer depended on the simplicity and relative controllability of the component drawn in the place of the Little Black Box.  From the top of the Black Suitcase projected two one-inch copper electrodes, fourteen inches apart.  In the mysterious black suitcase was a small pressure tank of hydrogen inside—one of the little ones that are sometimes used to fill toy balloons. There was a small batch of electronic circuitry that looked as though it might be the insides of an FM-AM radio.  All of the rest of the space was taken up by batteries and every single one of the cells was a familiar little canister.  They were small, rechargeable nickel-cadmium or lithium-cobalt cells.  Is it some kind of hydrogen fuel cell?  Does it get its power by converting hydrogen to helium?

Batteries were needed to start the thing.  After it got going, those leads there from the reactor cell kept the batteries charged.  One of the technicians began flipping other switches, and a bank of ordinary incandescent light bulbs came on, four at a time.  Finally there were one hundred of them burning, each one a hundred-watt bulb that glowed brightly but did not appear to be contributing much to the general brightness of the desert sun.  The technicians checked their recording voltmeters and ammeters and reported that, sure enough, some ten kilowatts of power at a little less than one hundred fifteen volts D.C. was coming from the Black Suitcase.

Battery-making is an art, not a science.  You don’t just stick a couple of electrodes into a solution of electrolyte and consider that your work is done.  With the same two metals and the same electrolyte, you could make batteries that would run the gamut from terrible to excellent.  Some of ’em, maybe, wouldn’t hold a charge more than an hour, while others would have a shelf-life, fully charged, of as much as a year.  Batteries don’t work according to theory.  If they did, potassium chlorate would be a better depolarizer than manganese dioxide, instead of the other way around.  What you get out of a voltaic cell depends on the composition and strength of the electrolyte, the kind of depolarizer used, the shape of the electrodes, the kind of surface they have, their arrangement and spacing, and a hundred other little things too numerous to mention.

Daily Cash Flow

The best companies have a handle on their daily cash flow.

Any company is non-profit until it stops spending its cash flow.

Take for example an under-ground public parking lot under private property; charging rent by the half hour.

Ideal downtown location, near the political arena, university, trauma hospital, subway and gay community.

The immediate area was being raised to high-rise developments but with limited parking and no visitor parking!?!

Imagine that underground parking garage the length of the block with 2 parking levels and 155 parking spots available to all with a parking permit – just like on the street. Monthly parking was available for those who could afford it.

Motion sensors opened and closed the garage door.  Security cameras watch the premises.  Bright lights illuminate the back lanes keeping it safe for pedestrians. Radio Frequency buttons were situated throughout the property identifying key points of security checks by private security guards.

Money machines collected the parking permit payed with credit card or coin.

 It’s all automated with mechtechs maintaining the money machines.  Private security guards issued parking permit violations and escorted undesirables off the property.

The owner collected a very large portion of the daily receipts and laughed all the way to the bank.

 A very small sum for money machine maintenance and private ticketing was placed aside. Three parking audits happened throughout the night; the private ticketer, city parking authority, both enforced through the courts, and the private security guard issued parking warnings after checking with the on-line parking payment app.

 The garage was turn-key and was automated – a cash cow worth  about $30 to 50,000 a month!! The closest competition was on the street at 7 cents per minute.

The private public garage rented space only,  they did not take custody of any vehicle.  The garage was therefore not liable for any damage incurred by towing vehicles off the property by police and tow-truck.

Now what to put above ground on top of the private public parking garage the length of a double hockey arena? Medical offices and commerce complimenting low-rise townhouses?

      What we have here is an example of a nascent, niche or turn-key business.  The businesses surrounding this parking lot were set for partying, near a secure parking garage.  Within a block of the private public parking underground, there were about 15 bars open until 3 am catering to the university and medical crowd, not to mention those after work drinkers.  Because of the private parking lot the community was safer.  Security guards patrolled it 24 hours every day and night.

Canada has more lakefront property than any other so  . . .

So, if the lot was near water then maybe a beach house with an awesome deck for kiosk movie prop settings.

Then there’s another turn-key business in franchised garages and storage  – 24/7 public access with security fobs, gates and cameras.

How’s about a round office condominium tower with movie prop starship bridges. Outrageous!

Then of course, there’s digital marketing .

Office and townhouse preferred parking would only limit public parking availability so,  they would be issued monthly passes allowing them to park anywhere.
