The Tummelplatz of Jerusalem

Filed under: Uncategorized — m759 @ 4:45 PM

A check of recent tweets by Alexander Bogomolny, who was
mentioned in the previous post, yields a remark of Oct. 26, 2015

This is not unrelated to a word from Freud:

Lincoln Porn

Filed under: Uncategorized — m759 @ 2:56 PM

Tablet  magazine, November 9th, 2012,
on Spielberg's Lincoln :

"… the movie’s lone Rocky moment
of ecstatic self-congratulation
is reserved for the amendment’s climactic
passage with the victorious congressmen
spontaneously bursting into
'The Battle Hymn of the Republic.' "

IMAGE- From Wikipedia, Venn diagram for NAND operator (cf. 'Mandorla')

"Mine eyes have seen the glory…"

Both images above refer to this morning's post
 Professor Lavery's Sunday School.

Lottery Hermeneutics (continued)

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: — m759 @ 3:09 PM

Recent New York Lottery numbers—


The interpretation of "056" in yesterday's
The Aleph, the Lottery, and the Eightfold Way
was not without interest, but the interpretation there
of "236" was somewhat lacking in poetic resonance.

For aspiring students of lottery hermeneutics,
here are some notes that may help. The "236" may
be reinterpreted as a page number in Stevens's
Collected Poems . It then resonates rather nicely
("answers when I ask," "visible and responsive")
with yesterday evening's "434"—


For today's midday "022," see Hexagram 22: Grace in the context of the following—


As for yesterday afternoon's 609, see a particular Stevens-related page with that number…

Recall that this is Black History Month,
and that the octagon has a special
religious significance (here and here).

The second and third symbols
are derived from the first symbol,
which is itself derived from
a well-known commandment on
the New York Times obituary page:

Sunday Sermon
on Saturday’s Numbers

Today’s New York Times on a rabbi who died in Jerusalem on Sunday, Dec. 5:

“In the 1950’s, he was a vocal advocate for the relaxation of New York City’s blue laws, which forbade many kinds of commerce on Sundays but not on Saturdays. The laws were repealed in the 1970’s. Solomon Joseph Sharfman was born on Nov. 1, 1915, in Treblinka, Poland; his family immigrated to the United States five years later. His father, Rabbi Label Sharfman, worked as a shochet, or ritual slaughterer….”

Saturday’s lottery numbers from Pennsylvania, the State of Grace:

Saturday Midday:  144
Saturday Evening: 360

A Sunday Sermon:

“Once upon a time there was a sensible straight line who was hopelessly in love with a beautiful dot. But the dot, though perfect in every way, only had eyes for a wild and unkempt squiggle. All of the line’s romantic dreams were in vain, until he discovered . . . angles! Now, with newfound self-expression, he can be anything he wants to be–a square….”
