"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

The Ugly Truth About Gertrude Stein

Much like the excellent example of Poe's purloined letter, the truth has been there all along. Liberals make the best fascists. They simply cannot help themselves.

It is a not so bewildering fact that must confront most, if not all, sentient baby boomers, that side by side with their protest songs, a rather sleazy love affair in academe was being had all the while for the icons of fascism-- Wagner, Nietsche, Ezra Pound, Gertrude Stein...No, this wasn't your hardcore right wing Joe McCarthy stuff.

Do what thou wilt! If mass murder a la Charles Manson be thy thing,, so be it! All is groovy...
