Image Enlarger

[Image Can Not Be Found]

The former is for me closer to the real world.

AN abstract with its concrete reflection.

And even the concrete reflection is an abstraction of a metaphor.

Whats going on there...not very sure. 😕

astonishment. “I never heard of such a thing!”

There was a bit of a distraction.

synapse comes to mind (get it? to mind?)

Willie Wonka quotes..
What is this Wonka, some kind of funhouse?
Why? Are you having fun?
A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men.

That's a good one. 😎

Perhaps a starting point is a brief look at the Pythagoreans.

When Pythagoras came to Croton, he founded a philosophical school called 'semicircle'. The school had many followers, but the inner circle of the school had smaller number of philosophers/mathematicians who were called mathematikoi . They lived as if they were in a monastery, having no private property and observing a number of strict rules. Among other things, they believed that

  • Nature and the whole reality has an underlying mathematical structure
    [/*]
  • That philosophy should be used for spiritual purification
    [/*]
  • That the soul which is pure can rise to experience the union with the divine
    [/*]
  • That certain symbols (including mathematical) have a mystical significance.[/*]

Go up to the mountain-top and wait for the extraterrestrials to beam the advanced knowledge directly into your brain... 😀

Nah, I got my tin foil hat on. Their beams can't penetrate that, even though they know how to create stars. A type 6 civilization, in fact. Ones that don't even cast a shadow. hehe
