That's the language that computers speak. They're using the metaphor of machines in the song, and that's just something to represent that in the chorus. They're basically saying the computer has gone mad. No one's saying theres a mystery. We're saying that it's pretty handy that it comes to = I in ASCII which is basically just as universal as binary is . Given the subject matter of the song, I consider this relatively important, if not just very coincidential, yes? And also not beyond the realms of possibility considering the amount of Binary/Decimal/Hex/ASCII tables out there.. It's been a well known fact for a long time . Of course the only way to know is to sit down with them and ask them specifically .
  3. I snot indivisible; I's divisible by three: I/3 = me! ex: The young man on The AlbumArt for Power Windows is I/3 Shaved!
  4. So, if we split 2112d [an even integer] by 33d [an odd interger] it yeilds 64d -which we all know is 2^6 or 00I0 0000b, correct ?

O& BTW, Jon... ...You did 'Win.' Congradulations! III. ...Plus, you use the same zero twice to come to your conclusion, which could potentially instantly makes it false ... ...You are setting a 0 constant to a parity, which is false. A parity can be even or odd, and this case it is constantly even... ...The only way it WOULD work was if you were talking about a machine that worked in octets. Then yes, they WOULD set the parity bit to zero.... ...HOWEVER, you come across a fundamental problem that you have added a 0 in the middle of the binary.. And not at the end . ...In theory, the correct answer you're looking for is 0110 and 110(0)(1) which completely breaks the symmetry... ...Again, I'm talking about ASCII because ASCII runs in 7 bits... We've deduced that 1001001 is 73/43/I and therefore, any binary number you start messing around with in 7 bits, for the sake of this argument, since you can't change the meaning if you change the 1001001 formula (because that'd break the connection to I etc) it is 7 bit ASCII. Forgot to add before I had to go catch my public transport that you can't get symetry from 7 bits... If 1001001 was symetrical it'd be 10011001 and the result would be 01100110.... I concede the argument... It is TRUE... I, in my haste, inadvertantly added an imaginary zero mid-string where I shouldn't have... [0110 [j(0)]110] An oversite... ...Simply because someone wants something to be true doesn't make it so; but such a desire can influence one's perception... Such was my case in this situation... I know bits can be [and sometimes, for a host of reasons must be] added to the end of 7-bit byte; but, never, for any LOGICAL reason should a bit be slipped into the middle of a word... Here I am mistaken and freely admit it... Indeed, had I been more objective, had I slowed myself down a bit I'd have caught myself and realized the symmetry I sought was indeed, the last string you mentioned: [01100110]! Thanx for pointing out my error... [Can't blame a guy for trying!!!] Octal... ...Haven't heard that in an aeon. Three-bit bytes! How quaint! III.

I even added them both together.... In binary.. And the number wasn't divisble by 8 . I think he just means you can derive 1001001 from 2112 and 43, and thats the link I hope so anyway, else its way beyond me We Have A Winner!!!!!! Not really. You're just putting a lot of useless ends together to derive a meaning that no one else had seen/thought of before. That's not really meaningful, it's like the six degrees of separation hypothesis. It's just a likelihood not that it was actually DEVISED around that. That's why I still maintain that there isn't really a link. More of coincidence than anything. Now if you could get 2112 and 1001001 to actually mean something without adding just a lyric into the equation, I'd be impressed, until then I'm nonplussed over it logically, because it's a song lyric mixed with two names of songs. Plus, 2112 is never a lyric in 2112, yet Cask of '43 is. Just sayin', I don't really think it's fair to compare two separate classes and a property in a separate class (Hey.. We HAVE been talking binary and all) . I personally don't believe Neil Peart is some kind of grand master of math that sat there and did all the workings out to make all this fit - he's a musician and his songs tend to have a meaning, but I don't really think he went to all this trouble lol. I mean, it's possible, but it's also highly unlikely. It's kind of like putting poop in cake. Lots of ingredients make cake, but it doesn't mean it'll taste good if you put the poop in the cake . Thus, the end result in a way is garbage (Though I mean this in the nicest way possible, Maestro). GIGO and all that . Yet another computing term I thought I'd throw in LOL. It just so happens, you can mix the ingredients together, but does the end result mean it's a good or correct one? Well, that's highly debatable . Oh... ...I dunno... It was only a casual observation in the first place; the [1001001]='I' 'argument' is a very old [1985]. I was simple trying to have bit of fun with it. No big deal. Garbage In, Garbage Out. But then again... ...Not that Neil had/has anything to do with it [it would seems like an 'Alex-Sot-Of-Thing' to me -maybe even Hugh Syme's]; but, the puppet master left his marionette's 'hand-control' on the reverse of Farewell To Kings in the shape of an "X-1" And it takes two line-segments to form an 'X' and one line segment to form a 1 -and we all know [2+1] = 3 (most of the time) Not to mention the bones going out the window in the insert on Roll The Bones are also in the shape of "X-1" (or "1-X", depending on your point of view...) And it goes without mention that the majority of the pips on the AlbumArt dice from Roll The Bones are themselves, indeed number 3; and, if you were to hold said AlbumArt upsidedown in a mirror RUSH could be made out to be LAZY... And I'm STILL counting all the references to The All Powerful Number 3 on Moving Pictures alone... Again... ...These are all old observations intened for the enjoyment or bemusement and/or befuddling of The Casual Rush fan. Just coincidence? Who knows? Still makes Perfect Sense to me... It was meant in good, clean fun. Nothing more, nothing less. In no way am I an 'Offical Source' of information. No harm, no foul. III.

  14. To further the assertion: 73d=49h=1001001b= (which loosely equates to 2112) Consider the ampersand [&] on Snakes & Arrows... ...If it hasn't been emphasized enough in the color scheme of the Album art; if it hasn't been pointed out that you must shift a 7 to acheive its charcter on the keyboard, then let me add this... Observe its reflection and perchance you will see a lowly seven imposed upon three. [or a three upon seven, depending on how you look at] [sorry, folx. Just a bit bored.]

  19. Not that it's my personal favorite; but, it's my understanding those in the Rush camp spent the most $ on developing the Moving Pictures album cover (and reverse). Hugh Syme is a fantastic surrealist... Having said that, today (and just off the top) I have call it 'Too Close to Call' between AFTK and p/g. I suppose its a matter of taste and/or an individual's own unique critera when making such assessments. ORQ: 'Target Mass Appeal' III.

QUOTE (madra sneachta @ Aug 26 2004, 02:33 PM) For one of Alex's most exquisite and intense guitar solos - Here Again Technically, his playing improved and developed immensely over the years, but did any other solo ever convey as much emotion??. Quite right! I opted for Here Again also, for it's 'Bluesy Quality.' Expressive guitar, to be sure!
  21. QUOTE (GeminiRising79 @ Feb 26 2008, 01:49 PM) I know that many of you would certainly go for it... Booze mixed with the intense euphoria of being in the presence of a Rush God. I'm sure many of you guys would never admit to it, which is certainly OK. Sheesh, as good as Alex looked back in the late 70's, early 80's I wouldn't have done it, but would have subconsciously considered it because I held him to such a high level...man, he was everything I wanted to be back when I was 19.
