"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

Greece: Tragedy or Hope?

This from "the markets" today:

"In order to achieve stability in the world economy it is necessary that Greece prove it can succumb to ever increasing levels of cuts in the social safety net. If this is not done then the contagion of weakness in the face of such necessary measures will inevitably spread to the rest of the world. At that point the monetary system as we know it will for all practical purposes cease to exist. So Greece must lead the nations of the world in implemented harsh but needed austerity in order to slow the rate of collapse while we maintain our financial control. We are not to be trifled with..."

From the people:

"There is a limit to a tyrant's power."
