Dialogue from Plato’s Cave

Filed under: Uncategorized — m759 @ 10:15 AM

At  scifi.stackexchange.com

Why was the Cosmic Cube named the Tesseract 
in the Marvel movie series? Is there any specific reason 
for the name change? According to me, Cosmic Cube
seems a nice and cooler name.

— Asked March 14, 2013, by Dhwaneet Bhatt
    
At least it wasn't called 'The AllSpark.' 
It's not out of the realm of possibility.

A Prime Radiant for Krugman

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: — m759 @ 6:00 AM

Paul Krugman:
Asimov's Foundation  novels grounded my economics

In the Foundation  novels of Isaac Asimov

"The Prime Radiant can be adjusted to your mind, and all
corrections and additions can be made through mental rapport.
There will be nothing to indicate that the correction or addition
is yours. In all the history of the Plan there has been no
personalization. It is rather a creation of all of us together.
Do you understand?"  

"Yes, Speaker!"

— Isaac Asimov, Second Foundation , Ch. 8: Seldon's Plan

"Before time began, there was the Cube."

Pronouncements

Filed under: Uncategorized — m759 @ 9:45 AM

"The deepest strain in a religion is
the particular and particularistic doctrine
it asserts at its heart,
in the company of such pronouncements as
‘Thou shalt have no other Gods before me.’
Take the deepest strain of religion away…
and what remains are the surface pieties — 
abstractions without substantive bite — 
to which everyone will assent
because they are empty, insipid, and safe."

— Stanley Fish, quoted here on July 3, 2007
The opening date of the film "Transformers."

The opening pronouncement of "Transformers" —

"Before time began, there was the Cube."

Those who prefer Fish's abstractions  may consult
