MOD 2020 Campaign Calendar. Published by planksip® 

The 2020 media campaign calendar for planksip® focuses on seventy (70) Figures of Speech. Starting with Heraclitus and ending with the following four contemporary figures; (1) Noam Chomsky, (2) Clint Eastwood, (3) Linda Pastan, and (4) Paul Coelho, the correlations are less than obvious yet fascinating! Unique articles, responsions, and literary criticism are all fair game in this campaign of Newtonian Giants.

In the case, where the month of death (MOD) isn’t known, as with Ambrose Bierce, we use the month of birth (MOB) as the selection criteria. In any situation, where the month of birth isn’t known (Aesop, Heraclitus, Diogenes and Plutarch), I took the opportunity to feature these authors.

A note about the Algorithms:

This sorting and meta-structure are outlined in greater depth and explanation in Constructing a Neural Network with Spindles and my Myelination (2020).

In terms of this campaign calendar, the following algorithms are used:

1 per Week (52)

April has 52 titles so one title per week is released throughout the year, starting on Feb 2, 2020. Normally I use a historical timeline for the release of the books, however, in this algorithm I chose to release the books in a random sequence; breaking up the Shakespeare monopoly or monotony (depending on your affections towards the Bard).

Concurrent Narratives or Counter Factual Potentials

Concurrent narratives involving thinkers from Langdon Smith (1858-1908), Francis Bacon (1561-1626), Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828-1882), Rachel Carson (1907-1964), Lord Byron (1788-1824) (George and I are on a first-name basis), Paul Celan (1920-1970), M. H. Abrams (1912-2015), Charles Caleb Colton (1780-1832), and unfortunately Adolf Hitler (1889-1945).

The importance of the graph to the right is illustrative in nature. Paul Celan (1920-1970) was a Romanian-born German language poet and translator and stands on the shoulders of history. This algorithm is but one of many mapped influences. From his earliest known poem, Mother's Day (1938) to his many translated works, Paul Celan, along with Goethe, Hölderlin and Rilke is one of the most significant German poets who ever lived. In fact, Maurice Blanchot, Jacques Derrida, and Hans-Georg Gadamer have all devoted books to Paul Celan. Next is Meyer Howard "Mike" Abrams, usually cited as M. H. Abrams, was an American literary critic, known for works on romanticism, in particular his book The Mirror and the Lamp. Rachel Louise Carson was an American marine biologist, author, and conservationist whose book Silent Spring and other writings are credited with advancing the global environmental movement. Adolf Hilter, well we all know this dictator. Langdon Smith was an American journalist and author. His most well-known work is the poem "Evolution", which begins with the line "When you were a tadpole and I was a fish". The line later became the title of an essay about this "one-poem poet" written by Martin Gardner. Gabriel Charles Dante Rossetti, generally known as Dante Gabriel Rossetti, was an English poet, illustrator, painter and translator, and a member of the Rossetti family. He founded the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood in 1848 with William Holman Hunt and John Everett Millais. George Gordon Byron, the 6th Baron Byron FRS, known simply as Lord Byron, was an English poet, peer, and politician who became a revolutionary in the Greek War of Independence, and is considered one of the leading figures of the Romantic movement. Charles Caleb Colton was an English cleric, writer and collector, well known for his eccentricities. Colton was educated at Eton and King's College, graduating with a B.A. in 1801 and an M.A. in 1804. The framework for this algorithm ends (or begins) with Sir Francis Bacon.

Falling Star or Photon Trajectory?

Is this a falling star or a photon trajectory within a larger dodecahedron geometry? Structurally, these trajectories resemble a probability distribution as seen in the famed double-slit experiment.


To start with the obvious, a thinker like Sir Francis Bacon was no conceptual understanding of Paul Celan. Paul Celan, on the other hand, undoubtedly knew about Bacon. A structured metaphysical analysis of Sir Francis Bacon’s Essays (1597) provides an instance analysis of archaic words. For me, this is foundational for a framework only. Pedagogical? Perhaps. Even if it does reduce to a mnemonic, so be it. I, for one, can return to this and research my research in a structured way. Moving past memory augmentation, I discovered this to be powerful in content creation on the planksip® blog. Our content strategies are data-driven expositions to enhance human psychology, or so the blog claims. Truth claims lie in store for readers and creators alike but I will leave that conversation for another day. My focus for this article is to describe the content creation algorithms  Discuss the timeline and historical logic of the following ten (10) thinkers;
