# If the fourth dimension is time, can I define a 4 dimensional array in a computer language

```

If the fourth dimension is time, can I define a 4 dimensional array in a
computer language, display it, fill it, do some odd rotation with it, and have
the numbers I filled it with after I displayed it show up when I display it?
(Ie, send numbers into the past?) How would I test that, knowing the numbers
(having displayed it before I filled it)?

This seems like an extremely M00sey question...

Anyway, the idea came to me one night after eating a Subway Club with Extra
Jalepinos (I'm mildly allergic to Jalepinos, and they make me
somewhat...Buzzing... Kind of like eating Hash brownies...). I thought, "If the
fourth dimension is Time, and my computer can define a 4 Dimensional array, can
I use my computer to send messages back through time". The idea would be to put
numbers on the visible faces of a 4D array and rotate them in such a way that
they would go back through time. I've the concept down now, but testing leads to
a little difficulty -- if I print the array out first, I then know what numbers
were in there before and, well... paradoxes up the behind....

Maybe someone out there in M00seland can come up with a good way to test this,
but I don't want to mess with 4D arrays anyway, as I have enough troubles with 2
and 3 d arrays. Indexing becomes a bit complex....

array[x][y][z][WHAT] <- See?

Still, it is a neat idea...

Hey! Check this out, man! U.S. Law say I cannot buy booze, being under 21,
right? "Eeen Dees Country, I am too young to drink Wodka." or something like
that.

1) Grape Juice
2) Sugar
3) Yeast

Hmm, says the Organic chemest. You know what happens when you put that lot
together under the right conditions? You guessed it. A truly second rate wine
suitable for a frat party or whatever! And who said eddycation never pays?

'Course, it's not legal for you to put them together under the right
conditions... But what are they gonna do? Bust into your house, see this shit in
your closet, card you, and haul you off to the state penn? I somehow doubt it.

Anyway, if you does it right, and bottles it right, and let it sit for a few
months, it actually gets better! I have a half-bottle of 4-month old homemade
wine (Was a whole bottle yesterday ;-) that is actually quite tasty if a bit
sweet (I put too much sugar in, I think). It was AWEFUL three months ago. Really
aweful. Cloudy, grody, y'know... But most of the crud settled out sometime
during the 4 months. Neat trick that.

Anyway, I have the recipe about, if anyone wants it. It takes a couple of weeks
to ferment, and it (the recipe) is mainly a template from which you can deviate
quite severely if you wish (to go blind :-) Seriously, though, I've deviated
from in so severly as to use Bicarrdi Strawberry Daiquery stuff (It comes in a
can as frozen concentrate) to make a strawberry wine. That was pretty good too,
but it was too active to keep around (It somehow carbonated itself, and would
shoot out like the bottle had been shaken... strawberry wine all over the place.
No fun).

According to Purdue's newspaper, "The Exponent," this week has been officially
declared National Orgasm Week by Rodger Libby, a sociologist and social
psychologist.

Libby says we need Orgasm Week "because we need positive news about sex.  Over
the past few years the media has given sex a bad name, and I want to present

This week, Libby will be delivering humorous lectures on the subject as well as
passing out condoms, lubricants, and pins which read "I Came for National Orgasm

I seem to recall in a not so distant issue of M00se Dr0ppings, that someone
mentioned the pandemonium of getting a rubber stamp together that said something
to the effect of:

THIS BILL HAS BEEN RECLAIMED BY THE U.S.
TREASURY DEPT. FOR DESTRUCTION. DO NOT
HONOR. IT IS NO LONGER LEGAL TENDER.

And then going around stamping all the \$\$\$ we could lay our hands on. Feeding \$1
bills into change machines, and then getting more bills for the change, stamping
them, and feeding them in, ad infinitum. Well, one of the questions raised was
"Where can we get them?" My fellow m00ses, that question has been answered. I
now work for the Cole Key Company, in the Maine Mall, in South Portland. One of
my jobs is key carving, and another is the fashioning of rubber stamps. Right
copies for any and all m00ses interested in this wonderfully heinous mischief.

The total cost for the stamp is \$5.00.  Tax here is 5%, adding another
\$.25. Postage is close enough to \$1 to make no nevermind, so the total cost for
an official unofficial m00se illuminati havoc stamp is \$6.25, payable either
cash or check, whichever is most convenient. Please send to the following

pay to the order of:    Jeff Cavanaugh
University of Southern Maine
Room 253 Hastings Hall
Gorham, ME 04038

Please send payment soonest, and I'll send stamp soonest as well.

Happy government toppling to everyone, and bl00pski!!!!
Mitya the Red M00se

p.s. Pat and I have decided that t'would be best to use black ink for our stamps
as opposed to red, since WE don't want to be caught at this, knowhuttamean,

Spock has just found out that pizza with anchovies makes him trip.

Kirk:  Bones! What's wrong with Spock?
Spock: 'sssh nodhing wrong, capt'n, baby.
McCoy: It sounds like he's on drugs...

McCoy holds up his tricorder and scanner.

Tricorder: WHIRRRRRRRR WHIRRRRRR WHIRRRRRR

McCoy(Examining the tricorder): I'm not getting anything, though.
Spock: Oh, wow, man, the walls are breathing...
McCoy: Damnit, Jim! I think he's tripping. We'd better get him to
sick bay.
Kirk: What caused it?
McCoy: What has he eaten recently?
Spock: pizzah with anchovies and a side order of tribble juice.
McCoy: He's drunk tribble juce before, so it must be the Pizza.
Spock: Oh wow man, where's my shades?
McCoy: Damnit, Jim! He's getting worse...

Will the Enterprize ever be the same? Will Spock become a habitual
Pizza and (Ugh!) anchovies user? Will all the tribble juice suddenly
dissappear? Will I ever be able to turn out a FUNNY bar trek?

Subject: Randomly Generated Poetry  (Wyrd oft nereth unfaegne...)

I programmed a small fast spinning database for glosses (easy to do on the
right machine), then gave it the 200+ most common words in the Anglo-Saxon
corpus (with MdnE glosses), indulged the machine in a variety of artsy
software, then went back to the database and spun it like slot machine or
randomly thrown Tarot, and received the following poetry:
Warrior, take thy journey    creation long;
An Artifice falls,    bloodies all heaven;
Measure much,   choose when to
Ask, sit,    thy bow let rest.
Allow worthy wrath    against grasping rule.
Do thy wood work.    Do not fail or lose the way.
Someone must    protect the earth there--
Blood comes    when some choose so much.

I wonder what R.A. Wilson would think?

little keys.  Each of the keys would sit and sit all day long.  It was
quite a boring place to live.   Then one day, U heard from Y who
heard from T who heard from R who heard from E about S.  S was an
amazing key.  She had curves that U would kill for.  U knew that
he could never really get close to S because all of the other keys
were so crowded in that he couldn`t squeeze through to meet her.

U was very discouraged for a really really really long long long
time.  He thought about S more and more, though he had never even
met her.  He decided that he had to see her, he just had to.  So he
began his planning.

A week later, he began his long trek over to S.  First, he leaned
over and beat Y right into the keyboard.  Now, he was getting
somewhere.  U crawled over next to T, who was looking more and more
scared every second.  U grabbed T by his shoulders, and flung him
right off the keyboard.  The next obstacle was R.

R was a mean, rough tough bully.  He kicked and punched at U,
trying not to let him through.  However, U had his emotions
backing him up.  He swung back at R, bouncing him up over the number
row.  Finally at E, U lashed out as hard as he could knocking E
right into W and killing them both.

The rest of the keys were quite appalled at such behavior, all
except for S.  S was really impressed by U`s strength and perseverence,
and was very flattered by the whole situation.

Finally, U and S were together.

The only problem is, certain words were totally out of the
question: you can`t spell TRY, RETRY, WET, WETTER, TREE, or WERE
anymore.

But we`ve still got US.

THE LESSON

Then Jesus took his disciples up the mountain and gathering them
around him, he taught them saying,
Blessed are the poor in spirit for theirs is the kingdom of heaven
Blessed are the meek
Blessed are they that mourn
Blessed are the merciful
Blessed are they that thirst for justice
Blessed are you when persecuted
Blessed are you when you suffer

Then Simon Peter said, 'Do we have to write this down?'

And Andrew said, 'Are we supposed to know this?'

and Phillips said, 'What if we don't know it?'

And Bartholemew said, 'Do we have to turn this in?'

and John said the other disciples didn't have to learn this

and Judas said, 'What does this have to do with real life?'

Then one of the Pharisees present asked to see Jesus' lesson plans
and another inquired of Jesus his terminal objectives in the cognitive
domain.  A third chastised him for failing to include an anticipatory
set.

And Jesus wept.....

Dear Fellow M00se,

convert.  Since there were no known existing chapters on the Clemson campus, I
preceded to declare my self a member, and immediately came up with a silly,
meaningless initiation ceremony with which I could initiate myself.  Since that
time, I have strived to reach the ideals of M00sehood and spread the conspiracy
to as many new chapters as possible.  As of this date, I have personally
presided over the opening of five new chapters here at Clemson.  The M00se is
reaching out across our campus, slowly now, but with increasing speed.  Already,
the SIGN is appearing across campus on boards and signs.  Confusion and
bewilderment posseses the minds of the masses.

Below is the list of new chapters.  Unfortunately, only one can be reached
by e-mail (other than myself).

Chapter name           Presiding Bull Moose         E-mail address

All of our new chapters would be interested in receiving a copy of M00se
Droppings, and anxiously await our first copy.

Thank you for enlightening me and our new throng.
