"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

Shadows of Immortality

The poetic muse Calliope ever and anon dwells in the shadowland. Will your wit deserve to live on in writ?  If it serves an immortal purpose adequately, then yes it will. What is that? It is written even in the stones, if you know what question needs asking. Less imperfection is our willful destiny as a species. And we honor that perforce willingly or not...That irony is the soul of wit. Now we that we should be astonished that spacetime has a preferred direction rather than being blown up like a spherical balloon. Perhaps even the oh so learned professors of believing only in childish models in place of the ongoing creation will stop and ponder on higher themes, oh muse of mine.
