Nash Equilibrium or:
To Make a Short Story Long

Last night's entry presented a
short story summarized by
four lottery numbers.

Today's mid-day lotteries
and associated material:

Pennsylvania, 201– i.e., 2/01:
Kindergarten Theology

Theologian James Edwin Loder:

"In a game of chess, the knight's move is unique because it alone goes around corners. In this way, it combines the continuity of a set sequence with the discontinuity of an unpredictable turn in the middle. This meaningful combination of continuity and discontinuity in an otherwise linear set of possibilities has led some to refer to the creative act of discovery in any field of research as a 'knight's move' in intelligence."

New York, 229– i.e., 2/29:
I Have a Dreamtime

"One must join forces with friends of like mind"

Terence McKenna:

"Schizophrenia is not a psychological disorder peculiar to human beings. Schizophrenia is not a disease at all but rather a localized traveling discontinuity of the space time matrix itself. It is like a travelling whirl-wind of radical understanding that haunts time. It haunts time in the same way that Alfred North Whitehead said that the color dove grey 'haunts time like a ghost.'"

Anonymous author:

"'Knight's move thinking' is a psychiatric term describing a thought disorder where in speech the usual logical sequence of ideas is lost, the sufferer jumping from one idea to another with no apparent connection. It is most commonly found in schizophrenia."

Star Wars:
John Nash, as portrayed by Russell Crowe

I know more than Apollo,
For oft when he lies sleeping
I see the stars at mortal wars
In the wounded welkin weeping.

Tom O'Bedlam's Song

For more on the sleep of Apollo,
see the front page of today's
New York Times Book Review.

Garrison Keillor's piece there,
"Dying of the Light," is
about the fear of death felt
by an agnostic British twit.

For relevant remarks by
a British non-twit, see
William Dunbar–

Timor Mortis conturbat me.
