"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

The Exquisite Beauty of the Art of Hypothesis

The verdict is in. The undermining of cherished beliefs of the rulers that be is an offense to themselves. Socrates  was guilty of such it is true. But there was no crime. Rather, there was a blessing and a promise to futurity.

The belief in magic--today known as information--is what lead Newton to infamously abjure hypothesis. The refrain from a pied piper of rock: "nothing's gonna change my world" is the low church way to put it. Information is being had as the victims of delusion huddle chained to their chairs in the movie theater... But what kind?

But such is the power of hypothesis that it blazes. Thus we herald this news in our battle with disease:

“We think we have finally figured out how cancer really works - and this reverses 85 years of dogma, upon which current cancer research and therapy is based,” says the study’s senior investigator, Michael P. Lisanti, M.D., Ph.D., Chairman of Jefferson’s Department of Stem Cell Biology & Regenerative Medicine.
