"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

Time Will Tell

Once again, a marvelous new astrophysical theory has descended upon us hapless, unenlightened wights from the hallowed confines of trusty academe. It is reported, or rather heralded as follows:
"Time Likely To End Within Earth's Lifespan, Say Physicists
There is a 50 per cent chance that time will end within the next 3.7 billion years, according to a new model of the universe"
This is all the more marvelous, to my mind at least, in that until now being remunerated for such a degree of universal, arrant lunacy (as I'm sure said physicists have been) would seem heretofore nigh unto a virtual impossibility. Indeed, new ground seems to have been broken yet again. Yours truly is truly nonplussed in awe at such powers of modern day science on display.
