“As we will discuss in Part IV of this book, the word “Spirit” is used generically here and can be likened to the word frequency in physics—it conceptually refers to a wide spectrum of possible spiritual frequencies of energy that potentially can have an effect in the world.”
“An even better approach the one used by search engines is to take the term frequency and multiply it by something that captures the rarity of a word.”
“What i have done in my master thesis was the term frequency of categories words for a thread in a mailing list.”
“Light of a certain frequency is absorbed and this gives a colour to the crystal or solution.”
“That fit with nothing we know about sound on Earth, where the frequency is always related to the size and structure of the vibrating substance, of course.”
“Not even the down-conversion sounds like a serious problem, though the frequency is a bit up there … oakling Says:”
“This frequency is also used by many other wireless devices, and allocating more spectrum to Wi-Fi devices would be one way to avoid interference as the popularity of other 2. 4-GHz wireless devices grows, the senators said.”
“Plus, in addition to the game data, the tracker also used open APIs, such as Amazon S3 for storage and a term frequency API for Facebook.”
“Is there literature about a cause/effect relationship between criminalizing obscenity and deterrence/reduction in frequency?”
