"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

Proxy Revolutions Anyone?

These days 'twould seem that revolutions come and go like so many summer squalls. The state of the world economy is a tinderbox  for sure. But just as sure newborn Castlereaghs and Kissingers erupt into view like so many toads crossing highways. 

This puts me in mind of news stories that are inconvenient reminders of these quaint geopolitical games. Like the one about the Saudi Royal family's financing of the 911 hijackers. That didn't make much of an item, did it? I even heard Joe Scarborough sententiously opine of a morning that it was just one of those things we all don't wish to hear about.

Now there is another little noticed human rights violation sponsored by our friendly dark age Salafist allies we also don't want to hear about in Bahrain-- where the US has a military base...Hmm. "Move along nothing to see here," the infotainment media seem to be telling us.
