"The second is that, even once FRACT’s scenery was made genuinely massively and its customisable soundscape was booming around me rather than squeaking through earphones, I liked it more but still didn’t love it. Every time I thought about going back to it, I felt disconcertingly similar to how I do when I gaze at a stack of unwashed dishes in the sink."
"Since IBM’s implementation, several other groups have implemented Shor’s algorithm using photonic qubits, emphasizing that entanglement was observed. In 2012, the factorization of 15 was repeated. Also in 2012, the factorization of 21 was achieved, setting the record for the largest number factored with a quantum computer."
"The creators of new and radical music do not just aim to contribute to musical progress. They consciously aim to resist regressive listening and battle against those powers which destroy individuality in society. The terror which Schoenberg and Webern spread, today as in the past, comes not from their incomprehensibility, but from the fact that they are all too well understood. Their music gives form to that anxiety, that terror, that insight into the catastrophic situation which others merely evade by regressing. These musicians are called individualists, and yet their work is nothing but a single dialog with the powers which destroy individuality — powers whose “formless shadows” fall gigantically on their music. In music too, collective powers are liquidating an individuality past saving. But against these powers, only individuals are capable of consciously representing the aims of collectivity."
Scientists say the means by which our planet’s moon began to sing its mournful aria remain unknown. Global commerce has slowed to a standstill as the celestial body, now entering its 77th hour of song, continues with what language experts claim is an intricate soliloquy of unconditional love and support.
"The song seems to inform the listener of the singer’s boundless warmth and affection," says Merve Arikan, researcher at the Innsbruck Linguistic Society. "It appears to have no established beginning or ending."
Siraj Oman, senior fellow at the NASA Lunar Science Institute, concurs. “It’s possible that the moon has been trying to communicate for millennia, and has only now alighted upon a method we can understand.”
World leaders, speaking from an undisclosed location, confirm the authorization of preemptive strikes.
