"The mind is a compact, multiply connected thought mass with internal connections of the most intimate kind. It grows continuously as new thought masses enter it, and this is the means by which it continues to develop."

Bernhard Riemann On Psychology and Metaphysics ca. 1860

"It is clear that the minds are the most important part of the universe, and that everything was established for their sake; that is, in choosing the order of things, the greatest account was taken of them; all things being arranged in such a way that they appear the more beautiful the more they are understood."

G. W. Leibniz

Elitism on parade

Frankly, I'm a little surprised that when the flap surfaced about Senator Obama being rumored to be a Muslim, he responded in one of his rallies that he prays to Jesus every night. And now he tells us that small town rabble cling to religion as a salve to allay their bitterness. But didn't he cling to religion as a salve to ensure his election stays on course? Is he then bitter or perhaps just thoroughly ingenuous?
