You tend to not being able to put those things into a cogent systemic pattern that can then show a relationship between far distant objects. It is also very difficult to translate into the very, very overly nouned language you learned for you to understand those coarser and less educated terms.<quoted text>
Did I ever say that EM was irrelevant? In some situations, it can be very relevant. But not *all* situations. Also, it is important to be precise about exactly what is going on. You tend to confuse things like polarity, electricity, electric fields, electric potentials, not to mention magnetic fields, magnets, and magnetism. Without precise use of language, understanding is impossible.
Oh, look, off in the distance! A half mile it appears. A big headlight. Oh, and a loud noise of intermittent emission! Oddly, it appears to be in a continuum straddling those rails you are sitting between. Let me get out my spectrometer and rangefinder to see if it is approaching or moving away, or perhaps transversing the horizon. No I am sorry, it is well below the horizon now. Let me get a fix on it here and give you an accurate account of it's speed, composition, and probable path. I do wish there was a gravity field nearby I could plot any deviation from the projected path that may occur. We may discover a black hole.
Just have to calibrate this..
Wow, the acoustic energy level of that was very high. I did manage to note it was an Amtrak, which does 90 MPH in this area. Two engines, too. 21 coaches.
Cool, huh, Poly?
