"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

Kepler's Vision


Thus do the very stars cry out in their likeness to the shell of a simple form of aquatic life that there is a grand design for the unique future of the singular intellectual substance of humanity.

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.

The Ever Perplexing Manifold Irony of the Senses

Upon viewing our sister galaxy Andromeda here in the infrared wavelength of radiation outside our visual sphere, one is taken by the sense of a violent whirlpool of starry material being whisked apart at some enormous speed. And then it dawns that this imagined motion is indeed quite real and quite beyond our day to day apprehension of magnitudes of speed. And yet, all is apparently quite frozen there in this telescopic frame of light years scope. So we likewise feel ourselves frozen here though our reason knows our motion relative to the universe is feverishly immense. And somewhere as we speak, scientists, tucked away in the laboratory use laser light to nearly halt all motion at the subatomic scale. Is it a wonder then that our senses are quite baffled by seeming statistical impossibilities at these infinitesimal scales that a sort of pre-established harmonic order should hold? And further since we can derive the enormous benefits of tools we have devised in exploring such paradoxes, why are we so loath to embrace the unalterable evidence that such an ordering is just and fitting? What little voice in our ear utters a jarring discourse against such good fortune? Indeed, is it not the gift of life wherein we encounter this ability of a universe undergoing unfathomable force to be leashed for the benefit of living substance?
