"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

Twinkle Twinkle Little Crab Nebula Pulsar

Anomalies are the soul of the universal raison d'être, the which, we must take heart, will never come to an end for as long as the immanent self reflective property of this finite, unbounded universe shall continue. And the question of the non obedience of the Crab Pulsar with the cold and dead algebraic formulism that denies the possibility of its gamma ray energetics is concerned, the man who declared that the new astronomy was about fathoming the mind of the Creator, Johannes Kepler aptly stated in his preface to the revolutionary work Harmonices Mundi, "But I deal with these types by the reasoning of the mind, not by numbers, and not by algebra."
