"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

Why "Experts" are Mostly Fools: A Case Study

So much empty prattle here that completely avoids the issue of thermonuclear fusion. The federal reserve is currently expending 85 billion dollars per month to bail out downright criminal speculators on Wall Street. What do you think would happen if that was the budget for fusion research? We would not be engaged in this endless ludicrous bloviating over "renewable energy" because we would have a virtually inexhaustible supply not only of electrical power but also high temperature plasma technologies which would have revolutionized the manufacturing base. For example, water desalination and a plasma furnace (MHD or Magnetohydrodynamics) which could cheaply reduce any given ore to its elemental constituents thereby giving the lie to limited resources. The concept of fusion propulsion would also revolutionize space exploration and defense against comet impacts. So, unless you are working toward a future with fusion you are less than serious.
