Of course, I will not describe to you what happened to me three days later; if you have read my first chapter you can guess for yourself.
Разумеется, я вам не буду описывать того, что произошло со мной через три дня; если читали мою первую главу "Подполье", то можете сами догадаться.

Cantor's procedure is a cascade, to use a term Lewis Richardson had applied to turbulence, and we first borrowed in Chapter 6 to describe coastlines and the Koch curve.
В рамках термина, который Льюис Ричардсон применил к турбулентности, а мы позаимствовали для описания береговых линий и кривых Коха в главе 6, канторова процедура является каскадом.

Механизм этого типа представляет собой систему сочлененных между собой твердых стержней, обладающих такой степенью свободы, чтобы каждая его точка была способна описывать определенную кривую.

Through dreaming we can perceive other worlds, which we can certainly describe, but we can't describe what makes us perceive them.
Сновидение раскрывает перед нами возможность восприятия других миров. Мы можем описывать эти миры, но не способны описать то, что позволяет нам их воспринимать.
