"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.

Wherein Thingumbob Get's Hacked by a Crazy Environmentalist

This morning, while drinking my coffee, I read an article about sunspots and solar activity which seemed quite plausible to my meager understanding of climate science. So, as always I went on to read the comments. Whoa! I murmured to myself. Someone has hacked into my identity and is now posting scurrilous and insane ripostes on the Internet in my heretofore unsullied name. Oh, imagine if you will my utter chagrin! The mortification... I must here and now denounce this utter fraud and hoaxer! Instanter! I promise to get to the bottom of this evil hack. Here meanwhile is what that clearly demented impostor had the effrontery to post in my name:

" So, Ms. Smarty pants, you think the puny little sun governs climate? Hahahahahahaha! That's crazy. The real experts know that humankind is an ugly pustulent boil upon the arse of her highness Mother Earth that will soon be lanced and wiped out due to our arrogant belief in technology. Ever since we started using fire we have been causing global warming. Only our primate ancestors are truly free, they need no evil fire things. We must return to nature now! No more cooking, no more Interne "

Dear readers, I sincerely hope that this cunning prankster being cut off in mid rant like that indicates that we will see no more of him.
