Military Review

In continuation of the story about Tsiolkovsky, or the letter under their feet

27
Recently I read in “Military Review” very good material about Konstantin Eduardovich Tsiolkovsky. And I have something to add to it. These are memoirs of a close friend I have recorded, a teacher storieswho in the thirties of the last century, as a boy, spent some time in Kaluga, where the great scientist lived. Now these records are stored in the archive department of the Military History Museum of St. Petersburg. As you know, this city has played a big role in the life of a scientist. Many of his works were published here. So...


In continuation of the story about Tsiolkovsky, or the letter under their feet


“I knew that this old Tsiolkovsky, but did not know that he was the same Tsiolkovsky. I imagined Tsiolkovsky in those years as a real hero, such as Ilya of Murom. I heard a lot about him, I knew about his achievements in “letalka” (the enlightened boys called aerodynamics in those years). And on the street was an old man, bearded, stooped, in huge glasses and, moreover, almost deaf. True, I did not immediately recognize the deafness of Tsiolkovsky. He knew how to hold on as if he had heard everything, but did not give a sign that he hears.
Tsiolkovsky was not acquainted with me, but since I greeted him every day, he nodded back and sometimes smiled in a white beard.

In those pre-war years, the boys did not have much fun. And there was no time for them either. But sometimes we ourselves found fun - from those that lay under our feet. From the boards we made sleds and rolled on the ice. Most of the time, the sleds were falling apart, but no one was discouraged. But once we are very sad. Broken the biggest board, the support of our sleigh. Remains of miserable wreckage, which were suitable only to ride down a hill. And there was no slides nearby. The boys were depressed, and I was even more depressed than them, because in Kaluga I was just a guest and had to leave tomorrow for my parents. The day was completely spoiled.

“That old man over there,” my neighbor suddenly pointed aside, “knows how to do such things!” He had an umbrella attached to a sled last winter, and it looked like a sailing boat. Let's call him!
And we really ran up to Tsiolkovsky who was passing by and asked him to help. He came up. We showed him our wreckage, he carefully examined them and said:
- New sled you will not do. But let one of you go with me, I will give him an umbrella, and the wind will roll you perfectly.
At first, we were even more depressed and began to say that we wanted a sledge, but Tsiolkovsky did not hear us. He suddenly asked:
- Can you read?
We nodded.
- Have adults taught you?
We nodded again.
“This is both good and bad,” he said. - My mother only showed the letters, but I understood myself how to put words out of them. And others have taught you to read. Therefore, you look at your feet, you see the letters, and you can’t guess what of them can be folded. Come, I'll give you an umbrella.

None of us then understood what letters and words the scientist told us. We took everything literally, and found the old man a bit strange, although we knew that he was a very respected person in the city. Some of us went along with Konstantin Eduardovich and brought a large, somewhat frilly umbrella. We turned it this way and that, and then we guessed to put it in the wind and rode well. The umbrella served us as a sail. With regret, we returned it to its owner, and everyone wanted to ask, where are these letters that lie under their feet. But no one dared.

Soon I left and never saw Tsiolkovsky again. And already becoming a student, I learned that it was a great scientist. Most of all in his biography I was struck by one fact. A young, not yet known Tsiolkovsky wrote a scientific work on the kinetics of gases. He sent it to Dmitri Ivanovich Mendeleev. The great chemist wrote the answer: the kinetic theory of gases was discovered 25 years ago. Tsiolkovsky invented the bicycle, although in those years there was no such expression. This embarrassed and upset him, but the “wings” did not cut. He began to try forces in other branches of science. Because I saw a lot of letters around him. The letters, of which people have not yet folded new, unknown to anyone and no one open books. And we walk the streets and see nothing at all. Education, maybe not enough? Or belief in yourself? .. "

    It is obvious that the algorithms for the emergence of knowledge, as well as their carriers, are continued. Therefore, new times are signified by the development of energy, not only of the kinetic energy of the hydrodynamic flow, but also of the potential energy that is contained in these substances. And moreover, we should already go on to analyze the interconnected processes of the induced and kinetic energy and its potential component.

    Just the other day I began to write an article for publication on Military Review. There, and about Konstantin Eduardovich Tsiolkovsky mentioned. And thirty-three letters are folded so as to convey the meaning inherent in your article.

    I think that everything in the world is interconnected. From this interconnection "randomness" is obtained.

    Everything has its time.

      For those who understand or feel that the world is built on the interconnectedness of processes, they can understand that thirty-three letters describing the content of our world with their combinations are nothing more than a system of mathematical analysis in the form of the equivalent of what can be described

        I do not think that it would be correct to consider the universe only through the prism of a mathematical analysis of events.

        Is it possible to mathematically analyze those events where time (or what we are trying to describe with this word) is not a constant, but only an additional coordinate axis?

          You cannot but agree. BUT! The search for the smallest part of the universe is also associated with the fact that the technology for constructing this world-building will be found. And again, BUT! The analysis system that takes into account all the variability of events on all coordinate axes plus its own precession axis allows one to describe time as events on any of the fractal levels and energy and structural relationships. It is not difficult to understand if you know how to carry out the analysis not only in a linear vector, but simultaneously into all vectors both in depth and out. You see, it is difficult to describe in words, if not impossible, but the whole depth of the analysis process is described mathematically with numbers and no more.

    So, from the point of view of mathematics, we can assume that without such an important constant
    (once again its direction and speed), how time can be dispensed with in mathematical analysis events?

    The expression "event" highlighted, because event in the general sense implies the passage of time forward at the same speed.

    Of course! Because all numerical flows have both a vector and a potential difference. It remains only to ask why people use only the variable function of the number, and do not use the constant value function for each number. Then a system is built with all the parameters of the space of those that are known to us as obvious and known, and perceived, but also those that were inaccessible to perception.

      I did not quite understand the wording. In my understanding, to obtain the desired, we use
      set various functions operating numerical designations.

      And also we apply, the number "Pi" (as a constant), which is nothing but the result of the ratio (can be called a function) of the circumference to the length of its diameter.

        You are embarrassing me. It’s hard for me to understand how you can see such functional properties of a number and not perceive these properties as the specifics of their variability and constant value.
        Of course, using the variable function of the number you see only the unit and undefined value of Pi. In this case, you will endlessly calculate what functionally means that during the analysis, the essence of the calculation process itself, the process of mathematical approximation of the polygon to the circle is analyzed and this process is associated with the transformation of the radius and not the diameter. Therefore, when using the constant function of the number, this "Pi number" can always be calculated absolutely accurately and at any level of calculation. Because what corresponds to a quantitative determination of correspondence, for example, 22 to 7, is not an infinite solution, but an algorithm of infinitely repeated correspondences of various numbers .

          Thanks for the clearly explained examples.


          But for any function, it doesn’t matter that it uses a radius or diameter in its calculations, because radius = 1 / 2 diameter

            Good day. Not certainly in that way. In order for the number to express and determine the parameters of geometric construction, or to say that any line and circle was determined by a fixed dimension always expressed by an absolutely exact value, it is necessary to derive the dimension of the circle and radius not through the “constant” of their relations, but through an algorithm for changing these values. small processes these “things” can be neglected, but for high potential values ​​it is simply necessary because even the process of these transformations takes on dynamic properties.

              Please give an example whose mathematical analysis is indispensable.
              With clarifications. I can’t imagine, firstly, how else can I express the numerical values ​​of the diameter to the radius of a given circle. Secondly, why this should be done.

                The circumference is determined by any value of the number! And the length of the radius is determined by any value of the number! So the process of transforming the dynamic change in the number determining the value of the circle and radius always has different parameters. Therefore, it is not the constant of the number and their correlation that determines the accuracy of such an analysis, but the "constant" of the procedural laws of change in the process of changing the dimensionality of the circle and the dimensionality of the radius always determine the exact level of these relationships. Therefore, there is a conversation about that fundamental function of number, which remains a misunderstanding, but has to be noted both in Plato and in the BIBLE.
                Why is this necessary? You are right that for the analysis of low-potential and relatively weak dynamic processes, calculations at the level of assumptions, limited input and output parameters are enough for us. At the level of permissible errors and ambiguity in the definition. But this cannot be done when analyzing high-potential and super-saturated informational events with their transformations. A small and mathematical error and ineffective analysis can lead us to the wrong place where we planned it. The applied value of a more highly efficient analysis allows now to analyze the processes occurring both in the hydro-gas-dynamic flow and on the surface of the outflow of the blades, for example, a screw or turbine. And this allows us to say that these devices at the modern level have reasonable reasons for their inefficiency and their further modernization has no prospects. Therefore, we can and should talk about new algorithms for organizing these processes, and such new devices already exist.

                  I can’t understand the first third of the answer, because my reason lacks basic knowledge and examples of problems when these basic knowledge rests on the need to look at some processes differently (more precisely, to understand their essence) and, in accordance with this, construct suitable mat algorithms. analysis.

    Eventuality as a function of time is directed not only "forward", but also in all "directions", including in depth. This means that the analysis can be carried out in accordance with how Nat. we use a number of numbers, as well as what changes. In other words, the illusion of moving forward is only a consequence of how we are able to perceive the correspondence of the present with the past and the future, as well as the fact that it is changing next to us.

    It is generally accepted that a single coordinate axis taken from which values ​​are taken (I did not consciously use the word "numerical") is a geometric line.

    If we approach the mathematical analysis of the functions of time (direction of motion and speed, as well as possible other components of time), then at the moment we have only one acceptable tool - a mathematical matrix.

    Or are there any other considerations?

      Firstly, everyone knows that to any line segment there is a correspondence of a circle with a radius of half of this segment. At a minimum, this allows you to always carry out any calculation associated with a fixed long segment as a process of symmetric analysis and not only along a straight line segment, but also around a circle. Therefore, the coordinate axes can also be connected by such a symmetric analysis from the point of intersection of these lines. This means that the sphere can be analyzed not only as a system of symmetries, but also as completely precisely defined directions of coordinates. Moreover, in the framework of the concept of a constant function of a number and as a potential difference, which proceed from the correspondence of one number to another.

        Ultimately, a certain function calculates the values ​​taken from non-linear measurement systems (for example, "around the circumference") (Please, give a good example) to linear coordinate systems (so it’s more convenient for a person to visually analyze).

        For the calculations themselves (on a computer, the basis of which is a binary property), through many functions into a sequence of zeros and ones.

        By mat. matrices — their format (i.e., the multiplicity of measurements) is set (when they are created in the program) and it can be used both in ten different fields of parameters and for one field — in our case, along one coordinate axis.

          Discussions on such topics in this form are a very complex process. But I still try to say that the modern system of mathematical analysis comes down to finding a single correct solution. And the architecture of computations based on binary logic will never allow one to receive an analysis of how exactly, a system of variant and possible directions of subsequent analysis. That is, the essence of the analysis lies in the fact that we can always see not only options, but also that these variant solutions are comparable with the energy parameters of the mathematical space that is being analyzed. Ie everything is so called. calculations carry not only the vectorial properties of the direction of analysis, but also the levels of "tension", as the energy parameters of the transition from one state of numerical flows to another. And this is not possible when using a variable number function.

            I’m just now working on a report about my visit to a research center in Germany.

            In a conversation with one of the engineers, it turned out for me that experiments with high-potential processes are carried out for the most part on a computer, that is, mathematical analysis is used. And only then they begin to experiment in metal. Therefore, this topic interested me.

              Do not build illusions. I repeat once again that the analytical solution does not consist in the singularity of such a solution as the correct one. An analytical solution should give us a set of options in all areas of further development. Moreover, these decisions are balanced in determining the levels of those prospects that we may perceive as obvious and not obvious. Because if, for example, we miss some insignificant nuances in the analysis, but which develop at a more dynamic pace, then after a while we will get an unplanned result. Once again, it is impossible to build analysis as such on binary logic. Moreover, the machine only appeals with the entered part of the information, but it does not perform analysis. Therefore, the same NSA have a lot of information, but it is people who carry out the analysis. Information now costs little - its analysis is worth the money. We as humans are now in a dual position. On the one hand, we want to create something “breakthrough”, and on the other hand, we are not able to perceive it. In this case, we feel that everything is somewhere nearby.

              Sure! We get an unrelated solution to those processes that are conjugate. And in highly dynamic and turbulent processes, while we are calculating some process parameters, others have already transformed into completely new levels.

    You are considering the matrix as a static mathematical entity. At the same time, a matrix can be a mathematical system with a capacity of variant mathematical events determined by its dimension from one single parameter, the radius. That is, the matrix is ​​a dynamic system of exact quantitative variations, but also the corresponding directions of these processes, as well as the parameters of the energy potential coming from the correspondence of numbers to each other. All this at this stage can allow the machine method of working with the information contained in the binary coding system to be transferred to the analysis system based on the numbers of the sequence number. And to generate not a linear calculation of one vector for each process, but to analyze at once along all coordinate axes By the way, this all forms a person’s understanding of what mathematical definitions magnetic fluxes can have. NOT as abstract concepts, but as properties precisely defined by mathematics, of any interactions.

    I learned new from your article. Thank you. Now in the theory of elementary particles Quantum Mechanics dominates, in cosmogony it is the Big Bang theory, space is considered to be curved (Rimanov). Tsiolkovsky did not categorically accept all this. He, recognizing the Expansion of the Universe, considered It to be unlimited and infinite. His theory explains why quarks cannot be distinguished in a free form, He believed that such a stage passed and all particles will pass during the expansion of the Universe! Moreover, He wrote this when the positron and antiproton were not yet discovered, and the term "quark" in general did not have!!!
