"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

Circadian Rhythms as a Universal Ordering Principle

The too long ignored scientific genius of Gottfried Leibniz in the seventeenth century created the principle of pre-established harmonic ordering in his Monadology. This was parodied by a misanthrope by the name of Voltaire. This line of investigation thoroughly vindicates the Leibnizian worldview.

Further, it also sheds light upon a very important principle in that same Leibnizian outlook developed by Vladimir Vernadsky. To wit: the diurnal rotation of the earth is perhaps the sine qua non in the hierarchy of the interaction of the lithosphere with the biosphere. Indeed, it may be that life were not possible without it.
