Thanks for the Memory

As I write, Susannah McCorkle is singing "Thanks for the Memory."

Below are some photos from the website of Paul Winchell, ventriloquist, inventor, theologian.  Winchell died in his sleep at 82 early on Friday, June 24, 2005.

Paul Winchell seems to have
posted a topic for discussion:
 
"God is a mathematical equation
   beyond our understanding."

"No bridge reaches God, except one…
God's Bridge: The Cross."
— Billy Graham Evangelistic Association,
quoted in Friday's entry.

This cross may, of course, also
be interpreted as panes of a window
  — see Lucy photo above —
or as a plus sign — see "a mathematical
equation beyond our understanding"
in, for instance, Algebraic Geometry,
by Robin Hartshorne. For a theological
citation of Hartshorne's work, see
Midsummer Eve's Dream
(June 23, 1995).

Bright Star and Dark Lady

"Mexico is a solar country — but it is also a black country, a dark country. This duality of Mexico has preoccupied me since I was a child."

Octavio Paz,
quoted by Homero Aridjis

Bright Star

Amen.

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)
