Subject: Re: 3rd derivative

The rate that change changes. Example, the accelleration of the rate
of accelleration.  The speed of the object in motion accllerates and
the rate of accelleration accellerates causing the accelleration graph
to move more to the verticle over time.  

The speed graph becomes a virtural straight verticle line until it
approaches the speed of light.  At that point the variation in time
causes the graph to move horiziontal until the speed of light is
acheived when the graph becomes flat to the horizontal.

A creative insult is to refer to a person as a 3rd derivative, a
"jerk."
