Not A Fission Reactor in Sight

It is notable that Alan does not describe any exotic power supplies in the sense he does not say “Our mothership is powered by a fission reactor”. He does say that they have some type of broadband energy absorption system on the skin of the ship, which would have the side effect of making it completely black.

Alan instead describes a battery, one based on physics and not chemistry. The battery is some combination of powerful magnetic fields and a stable almost solid like form of plasma.

Quikense | A Gravitic Drone Business Plan

As seems usual in my middle age, I wake up around 3am and think of weird crap. This is some of that:

Quikense, short for “Quick Sense” is a gravitic drone business idea. The elevator talk is:

Quikense is a remotely AI piloted drone company which uses drones to help people, either walk to their car, video tape potential problems like car accidents for insurance purposes and respond to police calls. With an iphone app, you can call a drone to your location within sixty seconds and it can provide close support like shining a light overhead, and recording video. This would be supported by a monthly fee.

With gravitic drones, drones that use gravity for propulsion, they can be completely silent and mostly controlled by AI. When the need arises, trained operators from their home, could help, giving words of advice, talking down threats, or guiding medics.

The use cases are various:

  • Insurance – video tape accidents, provide insurance companies on-site presence.
  • Police – first responder video
  • Parents – hiking guides, field trip monitors, etc.


The drones would be stacked in silos and with a call, would launch and in a special airspace designated for drones with specific pathways for certain directions, arrive as soon as possible, using the smartphone location to find the target.

Drones would be equipped with microphones, speakers, video cameras including infrared, and paint ball guns (for deterrence, not officially acknowledged). They would for the most part, be AI controlled, using multiple cell data providers for connectivity.

Drone silos would have an area of coverage, much like cell towers, and would have larger versions for police response and non-city response. Advanced police responding drones would have bullet detection and mitigation systems, spinning to certain side to accept the incoming round into an absorbent material for later retrieval.

They would also have pop-up video screens showing the face of an operator.

2019 My Year of Fry and Curvity is 凹凸论

I have decided to devote as much time as I can this year to getting everything done with Fry, including, hopefully, a presentation at a UFO conference. I am single again and my life looks to be stable enough for the next year to make this possible.

I have been over the past week and for the next few weeks, moving the good stuff from the Curvity wiki into WordPress here. It is taking a long time, for example, this page on the design and test phase took something like four hours to move over, in large part, because it had 30meg FLV videos which I had to convert into 1meg animated gifs.

I also have a bunch of other somewhat related improvements, including a subdomain dedicated to tracking authentic Fry originals and offering a place to sell them (not public yet).

I also came up with the translation of Curvity into 中文 – Curvity in Mandarin is now called 凹凸论 (ao1 tu1 lun4) which translates into concave convex theory. I also really like the simple 凹凸 characters which are actually completely legitimate 简体 simplified script and found them by typing “curvaceous” into Pleco (flashcard app). The 论 (lun4) character means theory is also used in 相对论 or Relativity.
