The Inconstant

We are conducting some action research into Uncertainty, now that we are more comfortable with its centrality. Cliff hangers, dark matter, comas. Even the Fundamental Constant is under question. 

Thanks to our recent interviews with N-Body Simulation programmers, we have focused our minds on “decomposing the problem: working out what must be done first, which tasks may be done independently of each other, and which must be done in parallel, in order to complete the tasks with the highest efficiency”. 

This isn’t as easy as it sounds.

The script is nonetheless emerging – in a kind of furious symbiosis with the astronomical interviews – while we wrestle with our fear of quasars and affection for categories of collision.

And lunch with Kamahl.
