"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

The Fourth of July and Prometheus Unbound

Here is a "snapshot' of ultra-fast rotating nitrogen molecules at a hundred billion per second (femto seconds) recently resolved by the Ohshima Group of the Tokyo Institute of Technology. The boundaries of our macroscopic senses are simply incommensurate with this underlying reality of the infinitesimal world of motion. Likewise the motion of our planet with respect to the cosmic microwave background radiation is some 390 kilometers per second or about a tenth of a percent of the speed of light. Which speed is, of course, the absolute limit of all universal motion known.

As the great scientific pioneer Bernhard Riemann noted, the ability of human science to measure such astounding relative motions in the very small and the very large should convince us that we as a species are potentially immortal. It could only be a persistently stubborn infantile psychology that is akin to a suicidal "death wish" that would argue against such a self evident potential that separates our species qualitatively from all lower forms of life. 

This is why the ideology of the governing self appointed moneyed elites in their attempt to halt scientific progress is an aberration. The so-called green ideology must be overcome if we are to continue our uniquely necessary creative mission to technologically evolve in this universe. Thus, and in this well constructed sense only, will Prometheus finally be unbound. This is the only meaningful sense in which it is self evident that all men are created equal. That is that we are in our creative capacity a potential instrument of ongoing universal creation. And this is what the Declaration of Independence truly signifies in the highest sense.
