The space-time thread was a joke of mine because of the way float-objects 
and signal-objects relate to each other. It was a thought experiment on 
what would be the most legitimate use of a second tilde in a way that is 
most like adding the first tilde in the first place. I tried to be as 
theoretically right as I could while knowing that in practice it's 
nonsense. I am not being a pure mathematician here, because pure 
mathematicians don't see the problem with having multiple time dimensions. 
(they wouldn't even mind working with infinitely many time dimensions and 
making a theory about it)

Anyway: I don't quite approve of the use of a double-tilde, which was my 
reason for the joke in the first place.
