Recursive Patterning

A couple weeks ago I was discussing the theory behind my work with interference patterns with Ogo, trying to bridge a gap between the mathematical backing of my interest and the aesthetic appeal of the reification of that interest, and found myself attempting to explain Steven Wolfram.

Well, I just found myself doing a google search for disjunct, and the third entry is (at present) a link to a page intending to be a definition of Disjunct on mathworld.wolfram.com

However, since there is no definition of the simpler term, here is the next most useful page (which does define mathematical disjunct—the conjunction of a thing and it's opposite), Disjunctive Normal Form.

I hadn't noticed the Wolfram link before...perhaps it only became conspicuous because I'd recently been discussing him?

Oh and

I derived(/bastardized, whatever) a word and another yesterday...

They used to be nespy, but now they are both cesty.

cest•y /ˈsɛsti/
-adj
in existence; existent, extant: The word cesty has only recently become self-descriptive.

[Origin: 2006; from French, c'est]

nesp•y /ˈnɛspi/
-adj
not in existence; nonexistent, nonextant: Yesterday has become incredibly nespy, despite being quite cesty about 15 hours ago.

[Origin: 2006; from French, n'est pas]
