"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

Solving the Wonderful Riddle of Our Fragile Vulnerable Planet

The cosmic events of Valentine's Day 2014, if properly situated, bring some home truths to those among us who are capable of stepping outside the manacles imposed upon the thinking of the commonality. The first irony that presents itself is the question of the near equivalence of meteor impacts and nuclear war. The video from Chelyabinsk could possibly have a longer lasting positive effect upon the psyche of humanity if it stirs up the passion for a mission orientation to protect not only our fair planet but moreover the unique species potential of mankind.

However, we stupidly dither here upon the world stage confronting irrational "geopolitical" conflicts which should have been eschewed centuries ago. For what was the Council of Florence orchestrated by the great Nicholas of Cusa and his collaborators but a marvelous attempt to put to bed the spurious divisions among us that the oligarchical manipulators from time immemorial have played upon. (Though the apparent failure of that movement was evident, the flank of the voyage of Christopher Columbus that Cusa set into motion did directly lead to the constitution of the United States. A constitution which Cusa seemingly foreordained in his De Pace Fidei.) We imagine to ourselves that supposedly self evident irremediable bestial irrationality of blind religious and irreligious hatred of North Korea and Iran will plummet us irrevocably into a nuclear conflagration. Of course, this is the "great game" of whatever historical guise the "empire" of moneyed families has taken on over the most recent several millennia of history. "They" would have us so affrighted that we will submit cowering to a world government using instruments of "police actions" of, among other things, drone strikes ordered by the due process of their "enlightened" cabal.

Although, if we clear our clouded consciences from this murky business underfoot by our adversary for a moment our two, what emerges is an altogether different species of problems confronting our futurity. First, we need to clarify a few issues with the aid of insights of Cusa's followers. Compare Leibniz' principle of the sufficient reason of harmonically preëstablished order of higher monads with that lugubrious and laughably bad metaphysics inherent in the standard model of entropic big bang cosmology. For it is becoming clearer more and more to those of us that are not cowed into ostrichlike mental postures that our home planet must be but a leaping stone to a far greater destiny our species naturally must perforce enjoy.
