People have tried in many ways
to bridge the gap
between themselves and God….
No bridge reaches God, except one…
God’s Bridge: The Cross

— Billy Graham Evangelistic Association,
according to messiahpage.com

“… just as God defeats the devil:
this bridge exists;
it is the theory of the field
of algebraic functions over
a finite field of constants
(that is to say, a finite number
of elements: also said to be a Galois
field, or earlier ‘Galois imaginaries’
because Galois first defined them
and studied them….)”

André Weil, 1940 letter to his sister,
Simone Weil, alias Simone Galois
(see previous entry)
