"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

On the End of the Leviathan Panopticon Insanity

Though I heartily applaud the efforts of Snowden & Greenwald in kicking against the proverbial pricks, it must be admitted that theirs is a rear guard action. For, the need for unobservable communications exists for only so long as humankind finds itself combating the death grip of an evil oligarchical ideology. Benjamin Franklin's principle of creating a society to do the good resulted in his gift of the lighting rod to humanity. If we are yet able to throw off the yoke of mutually assured destruction and enter into an era of our true mission and purpose, the need for secrecy will fade into a dim history of brutish and wholly unnecessary and destructive infancy of our species. We were indeed made for something better.
