The VATS Formula, SMART90, and S90tv

By Troy Cory,

Author of The Smart-DAAF Boys

Many of you may be asking "What is Smart90 -- and the VATS Dial Tone System?"

First of all -- Smart90 commenced the research on its VATS dial tone system, way back when, -- in 1988, utilizing existing copper telephone lines. The idea was an off-shoot of Farrallon's, Timbuktu/Remote software. The modem and VATS "blackbox" were put together by Beijing, China technicians, Victor Caballero and myself to stream Video, Audio, Text and Scent from Pasadena, California -- to and from WNBS Murray, Kentucky, the birthplace of radio and lookradio.

Who Were the Original
What if I told you
that you could have a computer that performs three billion operations per second? What if it had 200 gigabytes of RAM and its hard disk was 4,000,000 gigabytes? What if I threw in a multimedia system that you never dreamed of and a scanning device that could instantaneously recognize the most complex images?

What if I told you -
that you could have it for free? You probably wouldn't believe that such a system even exists, and if it did, only NASA could afford it.

You're wrong! -
You already have it, it's in your head! The ultimate computer, your brain - a perfect tool that we hardly use!

Imagine that while strolling down Broadway --
you came to a point where a 3 foot water puddle crosses the width of the sidewalk. You decide to jump over it. It would take you less than a second to assess the distance, calculate the amount of muscle power and jump without hesitation. Now, try to write a computer program that would do the same. I'm sure it would take years of hard work and trials and errors before the machine could perform a similar jump.

But, try to multiply 283,474,510
1,345,875 using only your brain! Well, as you can see it is very, very difficult. On the other hand, your laptop will do it in a split second! Does that mean that your laptop is more powerful than your brain? Not at all ! The complexity of the first task is by far greater than the simple calculation that puzzled you for a few hours. But, why can't we multiply numbers as easily as we can make quick decisions, such as while driving a car?:

Here is why! - Your computer is still a primitive counter, -
an electronic abacus, if you will. Its base operation is adding one number to another and storing the result in its memory. Alternatively, the basic operation of your brain is "ANALOGISTIC" - and it leaves a fingerprint on every previous event that takes place in your life, which in simple words means -- finding the degree of similarity between two or more events, objects or subject matter that matches each other. Using the adding procedure we can multiply 283,474,510 by 1,345,875 by just adding the number 283,474,510 to itself 1,345,875 times. But in order to break down your jump over the 3 foot puddle of water into series of adding procedures, you would have to come up with billions of sequences. That is why it is so difficult to write a computer program that would demonstrate even primitive levels of intelligence.

And this is how brain fingerprinting works -
It memorizes your experiences of many, many jumps that you had in your past along with the relative muscle force and other appropriate site, sound, written notices and pheromone attributions. When you need to jump over that 3 foot puddle of water, your brain simply correlates the visual picture of the current situation with other attributes stored in the memory. After finding the appropriate experience it just executes it. Simple? Not really, but at least you have a sense of the difference. .

Let me give you another example!

Imagine yourself in front of your computer -
Then imagine that your computer is a cash register with a thousand dollars somewhere inside. But, as you look at the keyboard and the screen -- you say to yourself -- is this really a cash register? -- Or is it an adding machine? -- Who knows? ! ! ! So you hit the "ON" button and suddenly when you hear the dings -- look what happens. Your brain immediately reconstructs the noise made by the ding, and as the icons and numbers start flickering on the screen, the $1,000.00 is shown entering onto the monitor -- and as the computer opens -- you picture in your mind's eye -- the thousand dollars inside the drawer. This illusion is used by magicians, and it is what made the great "rabbit out of the top hat" trick so famous. This move wouldn't be possible -- if our eyes, ears and nasal passage could recognize the movement of objects governed by the Law of Inertia. Everybody knows how the trick works (thanks to the History Channel and Houdini), but what no one knows -- is how to use subconscious mind data -- in data analysis!

Back in 1992, our Desk top audio video was operational -
Victor Caballero and myself were streaming our Mac II computer digital signals back and forth from Pasadena to the first "lookradio" station, WNBS in Murray, Kentucky. With our new Macintoshes, we even had Bright Star's Hyper Animator characters, working in our news room, lip-syncing our special news events.

At that time, Timbuk2
did a remarkable job transmitting digital signals through copper wires, but not good enough. We were struggling to predict the best time of the 24 hour day to stream our programing. As you probably know, there are many forces that can influence webcasting. Its transfer rates change all the time. For years, top mathematicians have tried to come up with the prognoses formula to predict the best time, but no one has been successful.

Then I remembered -- back in 1987
I was performing on stage in Shanghai. As I sang and moved around the stage, suddenly, the lyrics on the paper I taped to one of the dancer's backside -- fell to the floor,
leaving me singing the wrong phrase. (I sometimes forget my lyrics on stage). But, I noticed the camera with the little red light was focusing on just one of my back-up singers, -- dancing here and there, and not on the rest of the group. The Chinese cameraman was playing games with actress Joey Lauren Adams' shinny earrings, and focusing on her bouncing blond hair that smelled of sweet perfume.

Immediately I was trying to predict where Joey Adams would be next -
so I could keep her between the camera and myself, just in case I missed a lyric or two. In a few moments, I got so good at her movements, that I could predict where the camera man would be focusing next. That's when it hit me -- his eyes, ears and salivary nasal paths were doing a far more accurate job in interpolating the melody and lyric of the song, than myself. Before the next show, the
VATS Formula was born.

It wasn't a prediction system
or a complaint to the Chinese officials about the attention span of their cameramen. My new
VATS Formula became a simple "attention getter" -- using the natural senses of the human body as a tool, to get the cameraman to focus onto the movements of the dancers. It took just one show to train myself, as to which one of the dancers the cameraman would be focused on -- with amazing accuracy.

Since I saw the blinking red lights focusing on the "real thing" -
the "real thing" has been my motto. I have managed to use my own
VATS Formula discovery in many different scientific projects -- and it has always amazed me how the VATS Formula was born -- and how the brain's fingerprints can search and "pin point" the right combination of movements to analogously reconstruct, sight, audio, text and smells to help me remember the past -- and solve the most difficult problem.

Scientifically, the VATS Formula could be defined as -
"brain fingerprinting" -- the use of video, audio, text and smells -- to draw on one's memory, "to a real event" -- to set illusionary conditional reflexes. For instance, your ability to focus on the illusionary thousand dollars inside your computer, or on the jump across the puddle on Broadway, or on your ability to focus on the "rabbit out of the top hat", the illusionary trick made famous by the magician. Of course, "something real" should take place after utilizing the VATS Formula to resolve a problem, like "showing the rabbit and top hat".

Picture This! In October 1989, I watched a Chinese TV technician --
at Beijing's government controlled TV station, "doing some weird stuff". He was connecting a small thin wire from one computer to another. The first thing I saw on his computer monitor were scenes of my Shanghai performance in 1987, being fed into the computer from a tape deck. On a window, on the same monitor, I watched him dissolve the scene being fed from a video camera shooting my live performance on the Beijing stage -- ! ! ! !
I was in shock for a few minutes. The tapedeck, camera, and microphone were all connected directly by this small thin wire, into his computer connection box, all at the same time -- without a time base corrector. That is how I got introduced to "Firewire" and broadband television. !

It might sound strange, but I had no idea that "Firewire"
existed. It took me about two years to learn how to use "Firewire" in the multi-media world, and it was four years before Firewire became IEEE 1394, and another six years before "Firewire" would become a standard e-wave transport system in today's Macintosh's G4s, Sony's iwire computers, and in digital VCR cameras, hard drives, and DVD players using 1394 connections.

After realizing the similarities in the "real world" -
and the VATS world, the rest was relatively easy. Shortly after putting our China version of "side banding" electromagnetic signals together, -- Smell-O-Vision and "Firewire" was introduced in Anaheim, California to some of the floor participants attending the annual Anaheim Communication Computer Show. The results were astonishing. They were amazed as well as surprised, to hear the word "Firewire" for the first time, as well as learning that "smells" could be secreted by the Mac.

So, what is S90tv?

• S90TV -- is the sum and substance word for -- SMART90 and VATS. It is our goal to give the user, the "real thing" and those classic VATS "illusionary" visual tools -- that is meant to entertain your eyes, ears and nose, through the use of Video, Audio, Text and Scent.

• SMART90 - was named after the inventors of those wireless radio and sideband signal transmitters and receivers -- that put the pizzazz into the electromagnetic wave. Stubblefield, Marconi, Ambros Fleming, Reginald Fessenden, Tesla, DeForest, Alexanderson, Armstrong and Farnsworth. It was the SMART-DAAF boys that first demonstrated their devices to the U.S. Patent Office, Westinghouse, Bell, AT&T, RCA, NBC and David Sarnoff -- the E-way to earn E-money, with the electromagnetic wave -- without making preposterous claims.

• S90TV works best in real time! A SMART90 web site or web page is like most mechanical systems, they normally work well on historical data -- because they have been tested, and have been used by the web innovators to adjust and test their upgrades.
