    It's the number between 'the zero' and 'the two'.

    Hope that helps. Welcome back.

    I think I met her, 'the one', just last week. I'll get back to you when I figure it all out...eventually.

    some people refer it to the one that is truly the bass you are 'meant' to bond with. IMO, its bs.

    But here is a little story. My wife, when she was not, asked me to tell her if she was the 'one'. I said no, I don't beleive in that but I think she was the right choice for me given how we compliment each other. She had a total hissy fit. So I told her 'look I don't beleive in destiny or astrology or all that other crap girls normally want to talk about, I am a logical man, if you have issues with that and what I am saying, regardless of how much I love you, you need to go find someone else'.

    We got married, and I don't ever call her the one. Its a term some people toss around, its not anything I beleive in.
     
  9. YES!!!!!! NEO! (an anagram of ONE - Morpheus was not the ONE, since an anagram of his name would be SUPER OHM, referring to the use of humans as batteries for the machines...but I digress - If anyone wants some scary reading, check out "The Ages of Spiritual Machines by Ray Kurzweil (yes, the keyboard guy))


    20 years ago, "the one" was always referred to as "the downbeat" - at least it was to my jazz band director...

    unless I'm WAY off.... :D

    The phrase "There can be only one" (tm) indicates that there can only be one of something, as opposed to indicating a title of "The One".

    If you want to get technical. :D

    Actually "OHM" is a measurement of resistance to the flow of electricity (electrons).

    Yeah, but Connor was "The One" who still had his head at the end... He got "The Prize" and a song written about him by Queen..

  15. You're right - Morpheus was indeed part of the "resistance"!!

    Ohm (or Om, or Aum) is also the sound of creation.

    I think.

    And a fundamental law wich states the way resistances sum all toghether in an electric circuit.

    Ohm's Law to be specific... The basic formula goes:

    V / I = R

    Voltage (V) divided by current (I) equals the circuit's electrical resistance (R).

    Hell yeah, its been ages since i was tought that now im doubting if the "series 1+1=2ohm and parallel 1/2+1/4=0.75ohm" thing (sorry my english is not good enough to explain that :crying: ) was a part of the ohm's law too...
