"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

Christie on the Brink

I am sure it was heartening to some when Christie tearily blubbered his insecurity on the precipice of declaring for the Presidency, yesterday. It is as the talking media heads are wont to opine, "It showed his human side." As if to intimate that usually we perceive his inhuman side all too readily...Even here though they exude confidence that Christie is a plain speaker who really knows how to tell his constituents the unvarnished truth about budget cuts, for instance. He has no qualms in shouting down the general hoi-poloi with a smirk or two where appropriate to put them in their place. Why! He is a down to earth lout just like the proverbial Joe six pack. In fine, Christie would make a whale of a candidate.
