Interlude (tribute)

June 23 - June 22, 2014

"Cover Song"

The old seven-sided enigma (the man we want to hang?) intrudes. Stiff peaks and soft. Reverberations of a primal poem. A sticky end.

WARATAH-BLOSSOMS

Seven are the veils of the dancing-girl in the harem of IT.

Seven are the names, and seven are the lamps beside Her bed.

Seven eunuchs guard Her with drawn swords; No Man may come nigh unto Her.

In Her wine-cup are seven streams of blood of the Seven Spirits of God.

Seven are the heads of THE BEAST whereon She rideth.

The head of an Angel: the head of a Saint: the head of a Poet: the head of An Adulterous Woman: the head of a Man of Valour: the head of a Satyr: and the head of a Lion-Serpent.

Seven letters hath Her holiest name; and it is

BABALON

This is the Seal upon the Ring that is on the Forefinger of IT: and it is the Seal upon the Tombs of them whom She hath slain.

Here is Wisdom. Let Him that hath Understanding count the Number of Our Lady; for it is the Number of a Woman; and Her Number is

An Hundred and Fifty and Six.

-Frater Perdurabo

Indium was discovered by Germans Ferdinand Reich and Hieronymus Theodor Richter.
They were using spectroscopy to analyze mineral samples from local mines. They were searching for traces of Thallium, which emits in the green portion of the spectrum. They didn’t see Thallium, but instead saw a very clear indigo blue line. This was the first element known to have a blue emission line, so they concluded that they’d discovered a new element, which the christened Indium, from the indigo colour.
*interesting note: Reich was colour blind! He purposefully involved Richter in his analyses because Richter could see the spectral lines and colours of solutions =P

Flowers that compete for pollination in a harsh environment have adapted their looks to their survival. As well as being hardy and strong, they have become flashy, garsihly coloured and spectacular like peacocks displaying their feather.
