Apeirotheism........ is not too shabby a term..... thank you.
Recall that Greek rationalists abhorred the Apeiron...... the unbounded.
And we still do, that’s why we had to invent the best possible small world.
With this minor exception........
‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature....... hardly even an artiodactyl..... was stirring......
Now we live only a few hundred yards from the beltway, and are quite accustomed to the early morning hum, but, well, with six Kuwaiti engineering cousins across the street, with their six finely ‘tuned’ GT mustangs, it takes a little extra getting used to.
I wonder if they didn’t get the fracking memo..... it’s gonna be hard to frack the sand..... it comes pre-fracked. Hey, over here we’re still not quite living on the fumes, yet...... we are working on it, though.
And speaking of free energy....... how do we explain to our galactic commander in Utah that there is no galaxy? I don’t even think that Laughlin has got the memo.
Last I checked, the Milkyway was made of green cheese, and the Earth made of Swiss cheese. Joe Queso should know that.
It’s the global memo that we’re working on. There might even be a gotomeeting, later in the week. I wonder if Brazil will come up? How was the Queso in Brazil, and where was his vehicle, we’d still like to know?
This cheese business is all about ontology......
Ontology, like everything else, is relative...... slam your fist into a rock..... and you get the idea..... that’s how you learn about rock, paper and scissors.
There is no absolute hardness...... no absolute nothing...... love being a possible exception.
Mathematics is hard to bend...... that’s what mathematicians love about it.
I would suggest that twin prime conjecture might tell us something about hardness...... but that is a stretch.
But that is what logic and the Logos are all about..... when to bend, and not getting our knickers in a knot.
At the large hadron collider, why did they not suppose that the supply of particles would run out? Did they not get the Anthropic memo?
They’ve got it now.
But the primes..... they don’t run out, not even the Twins.
I’m not sure I believe that, being a personal constructivist.
I’m not an apeirotheist, either.
Love is the only thing that can’t run out....... it’s just that we can’t sell it at the pump, try though donny might.
Has donny got the memo.....?
He’s not acting like it. He acting like he’s running on fumes..... go figure.
Why do we personalists abhor the apeiron?
We like to know which way is up. We like to know where the love comes from.
But isn’t it supposed to be interpersonal...... untethered..... free floating?
Yes, I’ve heard of free love, but.......
Well, mathematicians love mathematicians just because it is tethered...... to the primes.
And what are the primes tethered to?
They are tethered to one. A certain artiodactyl would have us suppose they are tethered to zero. I don’t think so. I don’t believe in zero, any more than I believe in a quantitative infinity.
I do appreciate the concept of infinity, but that doesn’t mean that I have to materialize it. Our minds are infinite. We are quite capable of entertaining the concept of infinity.
The Monad is infinite, necessarily....... everything is tethered to it, necessarily.
Every chip off the Monadnock (sic) is necessarily infinite in the same fashion. If you look at all us chips, you might even wax apeirotheistic.
But don’t be fooled, my friends. 10^10 may be our magic number.
Yes, there is still a clamor at the admissions office. But, this is more of a reflexive clamor....... just saying.... who needs an extra bouncing bambino, if you have a finely tuned mustang...... or a portal, maybe?
We could always chat about this at the gotomeeting.
Is it portal time for us Tiny-tears..... and for donny, too. He’s looking kinda tired. Can’t we just let him walk...... into the sunset?
At the next meeting, we’ll need a song sheet. That’s kinda what this is...... but some folks never get the memo.
Was Brazil a game changer? We’d have to ask Sgt Santos Lopez. He should talk to Lais.
Or we can just ask ourselves...... what the heck is going on..... on this third rock from the Sun.
Are we a monkey’s uncle, or a chip off Monadnock.
Are those our only choices? That’s pretty much covers it.
And what’s that j-guy doing on Monadnock..... just who does he think he is? Can’t he get in line like the rest of us?
I don’t know if they have installed a j-bar on Monadnock, but maybe they should. I’ve heard it’s the easiest way to the top..... the Mahayana..... but don’t take my word for it. I’m not an ayahuasca expert, after all.
