"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

Oligarchic Bastardizations of Greatness Are Putrid: a Pre Mother's Day Jeremiad

Edgar Allan Poe rightly took up the cudgels against that execrable "barking dog" excuse for a human being Thomas Carlyle. The same Carlyle that took the great Friedrich Schiller and so vilely desecrated his greatness. And Baudelaire who is the epitome of putrefaction when it came to misrepresenting that very same Poe, a follower of the Schiller acolyte Alexander von Humboldt.

But do not forget that the very worst of this miserable tradition, if you can call it that, was the abortion known as Neoplatonism. A shameful concoction of superstitious phony intellectual vipers, hod carriers for all the evil cabals befouling human history. Truly, these belong in the nether reaches of the inferno.
