"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

More Sunday Funnies

Well, well. Once again it has been borne out that the effrontery of the statisticians is without limit. This very risible title, that is for the cognoscenti amongst us, has just found its way across Thingumbob's computer screen:
"No Fundamental Limitation on Studying Living Organisms and Other Complex Systems with Statistical Methods"

What a sense of humor this mathematician must have to publish this. Oh tell me where muse, is the good Reverend Jonathan Swift gone to in our hour of direst need?
