I plan on checking in here soon and seeing if some of you are still posting.

Sat 4 Sep, 2010 05:00 am - The unity I'm talking about is not a grand unity such as TOE or a mystical unity such as all-is-one but rather the unity that founds the possibility of arithmetic. I'm talking about... (view)
Sat 4 Sep, 2010 04:50 am - Are you talking about an infinite number of tangent lines?
The 1 and the 0. Isn't it strange that we have the straight-edge and the compass for our most important constants? The line and... (view)

Even from those who didn't offer me new philosophical viewpoints I learned anyway from... (view)
