"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

Winter of Financiers' Discontent

What dark and nasty thoughts must be roiling around in the skulls of the oligarchy today? It must be something to the effect that "democracy must be upended"

" Fiscal austerity cannot ever win elections and must simply be imposed. Oh, if only the people would come to see this simple fact of life, dictatorships would be unnecessary. But no, they never learn. Now we will need to scour the field for strong men to bring the rabble to heel. So be it."
