Today I am filled with deep humility
Plichta writes of this model as follows. "There was a time I used to make fun of the Apocalypse of St John and believed it to be a totally unreliable historical source. Today I am filled with deep humility, perhaps because I am now able to give a concrete description of the foundation of the world as seen by St John with my mathematical discoveries, and thus possibly open a new way to all of humanity which has now reached a dead end."

News and sexually explicit content

06-02-2006 17:55

If I'd used a headline which includes the word's Big Brother I expect most indymedia readers won't bother reading the article thanks to Channel 4 and the likes of gorgeous george.

If you've read it twice already and still can't find it, come to the rampART at 8pm SHARP on thursday and you'll get it. Otherwise, turn up late and you'll never know and get a bad seat for the show as well.

Infinity drove him mad
Georg Cantor (1845-1918), by his origination of modern set theory and his studies of the nature of infinity, left science a valuable legacy. Cantor was regularly admitted to a psychiatric clinic within the University of Halle, in Germany, where he lectured and worked as a Professor of Mathematics. On each occasion that he became ill he had been thinking about infinity and the continuum hypothesis. Such intense thought, at the boundaries of his comprehension, caused Cantor to suffer repeated mental breakdowns. Infinity drove him mad.
