  • An electromagnetic wave with a wavelength in the range 0.001–0.3 m, shorter than that of a normal radio wave but longer than those of infrared radiation. Microwaves are used in radar, in communications, and for heating in <em>microwave</em> ovens and in various industrial processes
  • kitchen appliance that cooks food by passing an electromagnetic wave through it; heat results from the absorption of energy by the water molecules in the food
  • cook or heat in a microwave oven; "You can microwave the leftovers"

DSCF6696 Jefferson in China, Mind Alphabet version
Was. Well, this is something we may also should send to/notice Alan Alda?

Was that Thomas Jefferson tries to find best and secure cooking equipments (not that dubious Teflon coated pans) and method – and as a part of that effort he might go into China today. (I bet he’d be sending chosen junior high and highschool students as a team – giving them videos and cameras and laptops – and letting them to record and track what they are doing – and let them engage with adults and professionals – and mothers and dads etc – over the internet etc. He’d be using Web in more way of connecting generations, people and ideas and feedbacks.)

He’d be telling kids to go village or city A and then kids refuse and they go into an argument, exchanges will be all recorded on video/youtube etc. That’d be fun. [and tell all the kids in the world that things can move and things are possible. Only if when adults let it happen.]

We know he had both sides – practical and considering side about food, and also epicurean face (which here at MindAlphabet we really don’t think of much).

But he’d be really happy looking into all those (probably unresolvable at this point) issues about

Teflon coated pans (or even microwave), contemporary technology added ways.
Traditional cast iron pans/woks (which has also variation within, thin (China), thick (USA))
Carbon Steel
Titanium, or other hybrid, layered kinds, etc.

[and pressure cooker, he’d be really pushing people to use.]

Thomas Jefferson had this very practical side. Tinkering person side. He’d be describing (or let kids describe and he’d do the final annotation – not *edit* ) – how the metals surfaces are different, how long they last, what’s the difference in making – and how much people have to have ‘culture’ (instilled in body) to be able to not to screw traditional woks and pans. (Heat, Water, Grease, Surface condition, how much you wash, how you know when to attend etc, all needs our senses to be able to be attending to the thing. And that all has to come in as a ‘set’ – natural reflex – in us. And there is education in it. Drive, tempo, physical learning, curiosity, hesitation, even mental blocks and conquering them, coming to have fun with learning and challenging etc. Problem is sure, this might not make you into sports star or renowned scientists etc. But once you take apart this set of reflexes and fun – it becomes really hard to move through them and remain on top of them. You start to fall into the gaps of components and it can really take time to unlearn that habit. )

[*Now I see how this is so distant from approach like Squeak. But humans are multi-faceted beings. And there are lot of configuration differences among individuals…]

*difference between
Science or something like scientific management, info gathering, many context work – or factual, very factual and expanding way of finding solutions – it’s a kind of management of many things – with factual, rational, some intelligent processing.

Science but which deal with basically one narrow parameter.

[I know how the word or idea of ‘Science’ is unrefined in usual…]

Still he and Benjamin Franklin would be very fascinated, and curious to know about how in some parts of China – cooking method was mostly steaming, to conserve heat fuel which is so scarce. They had that quality in their ‘science’ or ‘enlightenment’ – or ‘rationality’ (or humanity). [*They might point out the similarity with slow heat cooking which supposedly European farmers and American farmers and slaves did most of the time. I once heard BBQ has its origin in that culture, but I have to verify this.]

I myself knew for a long time, high heat stir-frying is not the most common method of cooking in China, because it just uses so much heat for small portion of one dish cooking. Considering population density, it’s not sustainable, or it cannot be affordable for everyone to do so. Also I heard and read many times how steamed dishes are the comfort food for much of Chinese people. (The problem is that by so far I’ve been completely clueless about steaming – I can’t do it. I always fail. Clearly, I don’t have any talent for it!)

So the next piece is a witness like account from Lin Florence – appears on the book by Grace Young.


Today’s Pyrex bento is ready for the microwave once I take out the little cup of blueberries. Butter baked chicken with lentil curry cooked in the pressure cooker are accompanied by heart shaped coconut rice and steamed veggies.
