"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

Cosmic Turbulence, Cellular Memory, Self Similarity, and Monads

When one starts from the standpoint of both Kepler and Einstein that the creation is not a random magical formula, but instead an ordered sequence of potential continuing causality that evolves, it comes as no surprise that Leibniz' principle of a harmonic subsumption of monads is being forever discovered across all self similar scales of the universe.

So, the positing of a mechanism of magnetic turbulence that enables the development of singularities of star formation to proceed at the very large astrophysical scale should be viewed as a quality that the universe evolves with a sort of beneficial fitness that in the end makes human creative reason possible. This is equivalent Kepler's idea that he was revealing the mind of God in the laws of solar system gravitation. Einstein's laws of relativity precisely proceed along this vector as well.

Likewise, the search for a physical mechanism that underlies cellular memory of genetic reproduction reminds us that Leibniz' proof that there are orders of sovereign monads at all scales possessing their own version of a window on the world is the sort of conception that should govern true scientific investigation. Indeed, contrary to the rabid outlook of misanthropes, once again, these endeavors based upon a mission to uplift the level of general well being of humanity, provide further proof, though none is needed, that we are capable of continuously improving our practice in this the best of all possible worlds.

Alexander Hamilton Comments on the Case of Edward Snowden

“Safety from external danger is the most powerful director of national conduct. Even the ardent love of liberty will, after a time, give way to its dictates. The violent destruction of life and property incident to war, the continual effort and alarm attendant on a state of continual danger, will compel nations the most attached to liberty to resort for repose and security to institutions which have a tendency to destroy their civil and political rights. To be more safe, they at length become willing to run the risk of being less free.”

Benjamin Franklin Comments on the Case of Edward Snowden

 "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety."
