No person of strong magnetic temperament should be present, as he or she would quash the power of the spirits. The ropm should not be overheated, and should be well ventilated; bright light was anathema to successful dealings with spirits. But Snoxall's runs a respect- able seance: "None of your white hands or luminous trumpets here" V The "sensitive flame" would reveal any shenanigans by registering the movement of air.
Selena for the ancient moon goddess is the surviving wife of Feldspath, and she would be seated opposite Eventyr. The "control" in a seance is another name for the spirit of a deceased who speaks for, or about, the spirit in question; here it is Peter Sachsa, a German Communist and lover of Leni Pokier; we subsequently learn that he was killed during a Berlin street dem- onstration of on the etymology of his name, see V These constitute the "basic; four-way entente" V Blicero is one of the many Germanic nicknames for death. Grimm traces the etymology from bleich pale and blechend grinning , and from these he derives other nicknames, such as Der Blecker The Grinning Death and Der Bleicher The Bleacher, for what death does to bones.
Dominus Lord , from the Latin, recalls the appellation accorded both to Roman emperors by their underlings and to Christ in Latin translations of the Gospels.

Arguing for the beneficial prospects of a true laissez faire economy, Smith reasons that anyone seeking his own benefit will also be guided, as though by an unseen force, to benefit his society. Such a person, he claims, "neither intends to promote the public interest, nor knows how much he is promoting it. By preferring the support of domestick to that of foreign industry, he intends only his own security; and by directing that industry in such a manner as its product may be of the greatest value, he intends only his own gain, and he is in this, as in many other cases, led by an invisible hand to promote an end which was no part of his intention" ; my emphasis.
A large vein of Protestant belief in Providence and election lies beneath Smith's metaphor, and Pynchon has already mined it with the image of the "hand of God" V But the war economy has "dispensed with God" V As the narrative will frequently suggest, the new industrial cartels erased any distinction between Smith's "for- eign" and "domestic" manufacturers.
His philosophi- cal writings sought to synthesize everything from Neitzsche's Superman to the Tarot, yoga, astrology, the Kabbala, Jungian dream analysis, and Christian iconography. Recall Zipf's Principle of Least Effort Instead, the text for this complex, arresting reference is his study, The Psycho-Biology of Language. Zipf was a professor of philology and linguistics at Harvard during the time of Slothrop's fictional atten- dance there.
In the book he studied language as "a natural psy- chological and biological phenomenon to be investigated in the spirit of the exact sciences" v. Examining everyday speech, he found 1 patterns of abbreviation — the linguistic trace of his "Principle of Least Effort" — to be important in unlocking the dynamics of language. Much of his work relies on various statistical and probabilistic tests applied to recorded samples of ordinary discourse, and the text is chock- full of "word-frequency graphs" plotting on double-logarithmic charts the frequency of occurrence of a word, with abscissas indicating the number of words in the sample and ordinates the number of occurrences of the word.
These are the "axes" Milton Gloaming describes to a perplexed Jessica Swanlake.
As Gloaming explains to Jessica, the graphs of schizophrenic speech yield, instead of a straight line, "a sort of bow shape. Only once in December was Falkman the featured, live act at p. During the war, Morgan played a pilot in four dif- 33 ferent films; here the reference is to God Is My Co-Pilot , featuring Morgan as a daring ace with the Flying Tigers of the Far East— hence the image of his grinning at "every little bucktooth yellow rat he shoots down.

ELAS Greeks stalking royalists A brief catalog of some principal struggles and realignments of European power occurring at this time. By December of the Free French under Charles de Gaulle were not only "plotting" revenge but trying those who collaborated with the Nazis.
During late and into the Polish Committee of National Liberation based at Lublin carried out the overthrow of a "Varsovian" that is, Warsaw- based puppet government. These developments all received daily treatment in the Times of London, Pynchon's main source; but through- out December only the German counterattack in Holland took more newsprint than the struggles in Greece. The ELAS Greeks were a Com- munist-led faction who took to their side various captured Nazis and, mounting a mid-December attack against Athens, attempted to remove Allied forces led by British general Scobie, who was under the strictest orders to keep the Greek royalist faction in power.

Behaviorist psychology dates from the work of John and Rosalie Watson in the twenties; a reference to their work will soon occur in the general context of Tyrone Slothrop's conditioning, in , when he was an infant or tod- dler see V Last days? The song was written by Howard Deitz and Arthur Schwartz in ; in it was recorded by Artie Shaw and the Gramercy Five, a disk that sold over a million copies. Here are the lyrics: Dancing in the dark, Till the tune ends, We're dancing in the dark, And it soon ends — ; We're waltzing in the wonder of why we're here- Time hurries by, We're here and gone, Looking for the light Of a new love, to brighten up the night — I have you, love, And we can face the music together.
What though love is old? What though song is old?
Through them we can be young — Hear this heart of mine, Make yours part of mine — Dear one, tell me that we're one, Dancing in the dark! A short episode, analeptically revealing Roger and Jessica's "'cute meet'" V Instead of "Beaver" he uses the noun for a cheap, ersatz beaver pelt that is derived from a South American rodent, the coypu, L and that the British call "nutria.

Afterward, the data might be subjected to a chi-square test to determine if the statistically expected frequencies of successful guessing matched the observed frequencies. Roger and Jessica have found Dr. Pointsman at the site o ,a house smashed earlier that day in a rocket blast. Roger assists him in a slapstick chase after a shell-shocked dog prowling the ruins,- during it Pointsman gets his foot stuck in a toilet bowl.
Pointsman is a Fellow in the Royal College of Surgeons. The format centered on Fred Allen, who used to walk down his back alley, pausing to knock on the neighbors' doors. The comedy stemmed from the resulting exchanges-for example, with Mrs. Veronica of the True Image St. Veronica met Jesus on the road to Calvary, lent him a handkerchief, and found afterward that it bore an image of his face.
There was no such London hospital, in any event. One of Pavlov's American collaborators, Dr. Horsley Gantt, did the English translation ; ; thus there is no particular purpose to the secrecy of Pointsman, Spectro, and others who "rotate" their lone copy. A bit of melodrama from the narrator.
