It's an anagram of ZENCORE


=========
Here is 'Cone Zero' as literal flash fiction that was suddenly requested of me upon a thread elsewhere:

With an extra "O".

Minipoll: if "Cone Zero" is an anagram of "Zencore", then the extra "o"

    1. popped into existence through Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle: a virtual pair of O's (O+ and O-, where + denominates normal matter, and - denominates antimatter) were formed in the literary vacuum, a nearby nemonic singularity gobbled op the O-, and the remaining O+ collided with a ZENCORE module and the whole was reformed as a "Cone Zero" model of the masssive Schwinger model (or the Faddeev-Jackiw quantisation). A clear example of Hawking/Lewis radiation, really;

    2. through parthogenesis: an organic, megazanthine entity of the literary undergrowth like a 'ZENCORE' often undergoes bouts of asexual reproduction that -- strangely -- manifest mostly with vowels. This time it was the "O", next time it might be the "E", resulting in something like "Nero Ecze";

    3. there is no extra "O". The mathematical symbol for zero = 0, and the original word for 'nothing' was 'zer'. Then, because people needed to be explained that zer = 0 it devolved into zero. Thus "Cone Zero" has only one "O";

    4. "Cone Zero" really is an anagram of "Zencore", and only an unimaginative fool lets something like reality, or correct definitions get in the way of a good idea.
:D

Brilliant, Jetse! I presume your marionite typo of 'parthogenesis' for 'parthenogenesis' was intentional in your search for the missing o or 0.

Actually, you yourself originally gave me the clue as to the missing 'O' when drawing attention to the other 'meaning' of Zencore that google produces: hence the ZENCORE♂

The 'Zencore!' book itself has a ! as symbolic of the ♂.

I wonder if all computers are picking up the ♂ symbol correctly. If anyoone's is not, then let me tell you it is the symbol for Mars in Astrology or for male gender.

The 'parthogenesis' was my mistake as I quickly typed the post during the coffee break at work.

You add letters, I leave them out: somehow it all compensates... :wink:

(edited: I typed 'leters' at first... :twisted: )

Nero Ecze

Actually there's some mileage in Necroeze.

Sounds like something one wouldn't buy in 'Holland & Barrett', however, unlike Zencore!

Maybe in a chemist called Faddeev & Jackiw, displaying sinistral snails behind a window of zeroist light-cones.

Hoho, Necro-eze - we can't cure death, but we can make it more bearable. A breakthrough in palliative care for the non-living from Holland & Barrett. :D

Be efficacious for vampires no doubt if they're nervous about going to the dentist!


ZERO IN NET could be a good title for a an online version of 'Interzone'?

Yes, but what do you give dentists on the vampire shift?
Oh, I know... coffee!

Dentists are vampires ... they certainly suck the lifeblood out of my bank account every time I go near them.

Are you suggesting a new type of vampire? Some sort of . . . currency-vore? Are women more susceptible to this new 'infection' than men? Thinking about it, if currencivores do exist, surely putting our money in a bank account is kind of like asking a regular vampire to look after our blood donation.

Currencyvores with the world in their favour. Have you tried asking the average employer to put money in your hand and not the bank? If they agree, I would guess you aren't on a contract :wink:

Oh, and at least you have a dentist...

Sorry - both comments OT :oops:

Currencivores!
Let's go fiscal!

Junk bonds, hedge funds, tapstock, index trackers, cone zeros galore - all sucked into the orifice of the great universal vampire, the Ontological Unit Trust underpinnning Mankind..

The currencivores must be behind Christmas, too.

Are you going to end up publishing a whole bunch of currencivore stories, des, and when people ask you wtf, you're going to have to explain this thread to them?

'Blood Money: The Accounting', the latest collection from NEMONYMOUS . . . stories from the black beating heart of the financial sector. Get it before you lose all your cents!

That's a good idea, Foxie.

Actually, Philip K Dick wrote a novel: 'Dr Blood Money'.

BTW, my joke above would have worked better if I'd put 'Let's get fiscal' instead of 'Let's go fiscal' :-(

Speaking of Philip K Dick (hint hint) nobody's answered my poser yet (see back up the thread)! :wink:
