I. Mathematics.    }discussion of ancient Egyptian math that includes their invention of fractions. Also includes, how they did multiplication and division, and algebra and geometry.   }another pretty good list of math sites. Especially, wolfram-free sites. Includes a link to “3000 completely worked-out proofs in logic and set theory”.    }site has an engine that performs factorizations(decompositions) using ECM (the Elliptic Curve Method) - !! Enable your browser’s Java to use this site.   }The Pi Searcher lets you search for any string of digits (up to 120 of them) in the first 200 million digits of Pi. You can also show any substring of Pi. The Pi Searcher uses a combination of linear search (searching each digit one by one) for small search strings and a pre-computed index for large search strings. The result is that the Pi searcher is extremely fast -- it takes less than 1/50th of a second to handle most requests. For more information, see how the Pi Searcher works.   }I'm frequently asked where people can get such a ridiculously large amount of pi. Be warned that 50 million digits of pi takes up 50 megabytes. This can take up to 4 hours to download with a 28.8k modem!  On this page are 10,000 digits of Pi formatted for humans. Also here, 1 million digits of Pi (Might take a while to download) .    }50 million digits (compressed, special): You can download 50 million from the Pi searcher here in .iso format, this is the download link. .iso format is an image format. If you don't know what that is and would like to know, look in JKU, Academic Research List. , and in JKU, Online Tools 2015. , to find it out.   }we recommend this site for all students and children. Solves math problems, lets you specify kind and format. Passed our tests, although we didn’t try as hard as we might have to crash it.    }a page of tessellation links, with descriptions, but unfortunately with many deadlinks. These links are meant for students and teachers.    }read the paragraph for “logic”.   }overview of ancient Indian math, with links at page-bottom.   }topology links on the Web. Topology is a mathematical study of geometric properties with several different branches such as algebraic and differential topology. Perhaps the first person to bring attention to the beginnings of topology was Euler. In 1736, Leonhard Euler published a paper relating the discovery of a different type of geometry where distance wasn't relevant.    }intro to ancient Egyptian math.    }overview of ancient Egyptian math.    }a very traditional history of zero, including ancient Indian mathematics.   }discussion of the invention of decimal numeration and the place-value system by the ancient Indians.   }an overview of ancient Indian math.   }discussion of ancient Indian numerals, etc.    }intro to ancient Egyptian math.    }overview of ancient Egyptian math.    }a very traditional history of zero, including ancient Indian mathematics.   }discussion of the invention of decimal numeration and the place-value system by the ancient Indians.   }an overview of ancient Indian math.   }discussion of ancient Indian numerals, etc.   }einet’s page for “number theory”.

Illustrated.    }tessellation and tiling math basics.   }MathOverflow is a question and answer site for professional mathematicians. It's built and run by you as part of the Stack Exchange network of Q&A sites. With your help, we're working together to build a library of detailed answers to every question about research level mathematics. We're a little bit different from other sites. Here's how: Ask questions, get answers, no distractions.This site is all about getting answers. It's not a discussion forum. There's no chit-chat.    }brief paper on ancient Babylonian math, including their algebra, such as solving of square roots, quadratics, etc.   }Cartan's methods of exterior differential forms are applied to a variety of physical problems, from the perspective of Continuous Topological Evolution.   }Applications of External Differential Forms.

Crothers webpage, complete with his papers and various articles.    }math puzzles (some with answers), resources, and links.    }random number generators from the University of Salzburg.    }Pythagorean teachings across the centuries. Illustrated.   }some of the little-known facts about Vedic math.    }linklist on math sites, etc.  Found under “Ideas”.    }discusses ancient Babylonian math and their invention of the base-60 number system, which is appropriate for spherical geometry. They were superb astronomers, perhaps as good as the Indians. Note that their computation of the length of the modern year was precise to several digits after the decimal point, and that their algerbraic solution of the quadratic was correct by modern standards (i.e., all around 1700 b.c. or before, etc.). Note also their very accurate tracking and computation of the sidereal year of Jupiter.

"The word 'tensegrity' is an invention: a contraction of 'tensional integrity.' Tensegrity describes a structural-relationship principle in which structural shape is guaranteed by the finitely closed, comprehensively continuous, tensional behaviors of the system and not by the discontinuous and exclusively local compressional member behaviors. Tensegrity provides the ability to yield increasingly without ultimately breaking or coming asunder"

However, this page is typical of what you’ll encounter among Buddhist psychologists, and so in included for you for that reason.   }this site has a very large, free, HQ library, the largest Buddhism library on the Web. Very thorough. Most of the site is in english, the rest in Russian or Tibetan. the Library includes manuals, grammars, and dictionaries for translating between English, Tibetan, and Russian, many dictionaries, and instructions for how to use all the dictionaries and documents.

For more than two decades, we have called the world’s attention to the injustices and brutality being suffered by the people of Tibet. We’ve shone a spotlight on China’s repressive authority and intervened on behalf of political prisoners. We’ve worked with and been guided by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and have provided support to Tibetans in exile. The International Campaign for Tibet (ICT) works to promote human rights and democratic freedoms for the people of Tibet. Founded in 1988, ICT, a 501(c)(3) organization, maintains offices in Washington, DC, Amsterdam, Berlin, Brussels, and London with a field office in Dharamsala, India.   }as description of Francisco Varela’s influence on Buddhism and Cognitive Science by  Eleanor Rosch Department of Psychology, University of California, Berkeley.  This is an obituary, and includes her memories of organizing a summer conference at Naropa  Institute in the late 1970s on Buddhism and Cognitive Science.   }brief descriptions of the five Buddhist families, from Shambhala Sun article.   }brief statement of Buddhism with links following on page.

Described by NASA as a "tiny asteroid," the meteor's explosion created a blast in central Russia equivalent to 300,000 tons of TNT, the space agency's officials said Friday, adding that the incident was a once-in-100-years event. The injured included more than 200 children. Most of those hurt are in the Chelyabinsk region, though the vast majority of injuries are not thought to be serious.   }description and history, also with photo, of 45P/Honda-Mrkos-Pajdusakova.   }crackpots that believe all that new, stupid stuff.

Buckyballs, lacy-looking molecules made up of carbon atoms, are also known as fullerenes and are named in honor of Buckminster Fuller because they are shaped like the geodesic dome he invented. Inside the buckyballs was a strange type of cosmic helium, along with other gases, Bunch said in a internal link telephone interview.   }ABC News' Kirit Radia, based in Moscow, passes on notes from a conversation with Paul Abell of NASA's Orbital Debris Office at the Johnson Space Center in Houston:
"This was the BIGGEST meteor to hit since the 1908 impact that flattened a large part of Siberia. NASA's preliminary calculation is that this thing weighed in at 7,700 tons (not 10 tons as Russian scientists first said).
"NASA's preliminary estimate is that this item was about 15 meters in diameter (the 1908 one was 50 meters), larger than the one that streaked across the skies of California last year (though that one was probably heavier due to its composition)    }This page has all the volumes from the Quantavolution And Catastrophe  series of Alfred De Grazia, late Professor Emeritus of the University of Chicago, in HTML, PDF, and plaintext, an Acrobat reader that you can download, and other info, such as word-frequency counts of the chapters, and so on.    }the PDF files of Chaos and Creation can also be found here.  This is the PDF file for chapters 1 and 2, but the Acrobat reader will automatically load the correct chapter from the TOC if you’re on the webpage/site.

Note that this is mainstream, old-school type info about them.   }this is an attempt by one mainstream scientist to criticize the new, emerging sciences shown in this list and others (Groundhog List, Part Deux, etc.). That is, were in the middle of a new scientific revolution now, and the fires are burning the forest down from many different directions (compare, e.g., Rupert Sheldrake, etc.).

See also links on this page re/Alfvén waves.   }contains a rather long link-list for info about small bodies of the solar system. This seems to be a really complete list.   }the standard view of craters, etc., as for students.   }asteroid collision, they think.   }If astronomers treated historical data with the same rigor and attention to detail with which they treat present data, they would consider that that evidence indicates the occurrence of events only a few thousands of years ago that reorganized the Solar System and resurfaced the Earth. Instead of taking for granted their speculation that 1999RQ36 is a pristine sample of billion-year-old proto-life, they would consider that it might be a space-fried fragment of life recently blasted from the ruins of the Earth.   }Any object coming far from the earth will carry a different charge. As it encounters lower layers of the Earth's plasma sheath, the voltage between the object and the layer could abruptly increase and the object begin to visibly
discharge. At first it would be surrounded by a “glow discharge”, a diffuse luminescence similar to St. Elmo’s fire or to high-altitude “elves”. As the
voltage rises, the discharge would jump to “arc” mode and the object would become an electrode at the focus of upper-atmospheric charge. At this point
material would begin to ablate in a sputtering process as well as from velocity-caused air friction. If the current flow becomes too extreme, capacitive
discharges within the meteor will cause a violent outburst of electricity with sudden bright flashes. The meteor is now called a "bolide," or flaring meteor.   }cosmic microwave background temperatures.   }lunar craters, how they’re formed, etc. With photos.   }Are carbonaceous asteroids the precursors of life or the wreckage of life? NASA plans to launch the Origins Spectral Interpretation Resource Identification Security Regolith Explorer mission, also known as OSIRIS-REx, in 2016. The
spacecraft will orbit the Near Earth Object (NEO) 1999RQ36. After a year in close orbit, the probe will gather a sample of material from the object’s surface and bring the sample back to Earth. If astronomers treated historical data with the same rigor and attention to detail with which they treat present data, they would consider that that evidence indicates the occurrence of events only a  few thousands of years ago that reorganized the Solar System and resurfaced the Earth. Instead of taking for granted their speculation that 1999RQ36 is a pristine sample of billion-year-old proto-life, they would consider that it might be a space-fried fragment of life recently blasted from the ruins of the Earth.    }craters on Eros explained only by electrical activity.  }more on lunar craters. Photos.   }”Comets are said to be composed of “dusty ices.” Why have crystalline structures that require high temperatures been found in them?”   }On September 27, 2007, NASA launched the Dawn spacecraft on a mission that will take it into the asteroid belt, where it will study two of the largest planetesimals in orbit between Mars and Jupiter, Ceres and Vesta. Dawn is so named because it will be observing objects thought to have existed since the dawn of the Solar System. Ceres has recently been added to the roster of "dwarf planets" along with Pluto—Ceres being the only one within the asteroid belt. Vesta, the first one of the Dawn mission's targets, could also be added, something that data from the space probe will help to determine. Vesta is the second largest asteroid, with a diameter of approximately 530 kilometers. It was found in 1807 by Heinrich Wilhelm Olbers. Using Saturn's moons for scale again, Vesta compares to Enceladus or Mimas in size.   }asteroid collision photos.  }Plasma arcs do not disturb the surrounding surfaces when they are used in industrial applications. Based on laboratory analysis, that is what has occurred on Vesta and on all the asteroids, moons, and planets of the solar system: plasma discharge erosion. Planetary scientists ignore electrical explanations, which rectify the anomalies in other theories, because they know almost nothing about plasma and electric currents in space. Electricity can create the very things they are sending out probes to study.   }this has the descriptions of comet garradd, photo, graphics, and video (0:29). It can be seen with binoculars.   }great photo of comet garradd with the perseid meteors.   }gravitational mystery spots.   }wiki for 45P/Honda-Mrkos-Pajdusakova. 9/11.

VI. Renaissance Influences.   }
In a time and place not too distant, an introduction to Renaissance studies consisted of the dictum that it was a glorious period resurrecting antiquity from the depths of the dark ages. In my recent travels to Florence, the anachronistic nature of classical symbols really hit home. Staring at the Birth of Venus, I saw within the beauty of Botticelli's goddess the embodiment of Medici commercial ambition, where Pagan themes were not being reborn, but recycled into something different. 14mar14 Update: this site is going down. It is a Recommended site, so, use this URL for now: .   }James Hillman always spoke of the Greek gods as if they were present, not literal but real. Years ago I read Karl Kerenyi’s idea that religion begins in the atmosphere of a place or situation. An image for Hillman is not an intellectual abstraction but a presence, again, one that is real but not literal. The Mona Lisa, Hamlet, and Sherlock Holmes have become so real in some people’s imagination that they relate to the figures as real presences, though they know they are fictions. Seeing the astrological conditions of an ordinary day may be another way of taking certain images seriously without turning them into abstract ideas or confusing them with actual persons.   }Renaissance Neoplatonism and Archetypal Psychology. “what enabled the Renaissance was not (as is commonly supposed) the rediscovery of humanity or nature, but the rediscovery of soul and its paradoxical nature, for while it is in us, we are also in it. That is, the imaginative world of the soul has an objective existence independent of our individual egos. He identifies Petrarch's descent from Mont Ventoux as the turning point because, as you will recall, it was there that he consulted Augustine's Confessions at random and, from what he read, realized that the world inside is just as large and real (just as given) as the world outside. In that passage (X.8) Augustine described his imagination as "a large and boundless chamber," both a power of his and a part of his nature, yet beyond his comprehension. "Therefore is the mind too strait to contain itself." “   }Dee’s writings listed with brief descriptions. “John Dee was an influential Renaissance figure. He was Queen Elizabeth's scientific advisor. In later life, he became disillusioned with pure science and started experimenting with occult techniques of the day. “    }Mysteriorum Libri Quinque or, Five Books of Mystical Exercises of Dr. John Dee, An Angelic Revelation of Kabbalistic Magic and other Mysteries Occult and Divine revealed to Dr. John Dee and Edward Kelly.

Spanning three centuries, and weaving together the stories of Renaissance magician John Dee, philosopher Giordano Bruno, and present-day itinerant historian and writer Pierce Moffett, the AEgypt sequence is as richly significant as Lawrence Durrell's Alexandria Quartet or Anthony Powell's Dance to the Music of Time. Crowley, a master prose stylist, explores transformations physical, magical, alchemical, and personal in this epic, distinctly American novel where the past, present, and future reflect each other.”   }very in-depth page on John Dee, which also discusses his mathematics, as well as his life, influences, associations. “A relatively late exemplar of a person who united astronomy/astrology with mathematics and recommended observation of nature was John Dee. “  }The negative attitude towards influence is a relatively recent phenomenon, and is a result of post-Enlightenment individualism, where there is an excessive concern for originality and "genius". Barfield explained that the concept of independent creativity emerged well after the Renaissance. Before the Renaissance "genius" is a spirit-being other than the poet himself, and they would say "he has a genius". After the Renaissance the inspiration is seen as part of the poet himself and we say "he is a genius".   }”The Renaissance Imagination: The British scholar's major Renaissance articles explore the nature of the period's imagery and symbolism, the relation between its art and literature, and Renaissance attitudes toward ancient and contemporary history.”    }replacement link for the review of Endless Things. Smallbeer Press seems to have lost their website. “Crowley's metaphor of The "chain of books" used as both modes of preserving past knowledge and as physical objects which link the past with the future is one of the narrative sleight-of-hands that help create the multilayered texture of this novel as a book composed of many other books. The complexity of such metaphors in combination with the enigmatic nature of Crowley's prose style lends a mystical aspect to the story, which often unfolds only to reveal more sophisticated interpretations, like one of those Renaissance dream poems which seem to be about love, but might also be about alchemy, or metaphysics, or even political intrigue. “    }page on the AEgypt tetralogy, and a review of Crowley’s Little, Big , written by someone who “got it”. “The Aegypt Cycle — (1987-2007) Publisher: Pierce Moffett is an unorthodox historian and an expert in ancient astrology, myths, and superstition. The land that Moffett studies is not the real, geographical Egypt but Ãegypt, a country of the imagination. When Moffett discovers the historical novels of local writer Fellowes Kraft, his course is charted. Kraft’s books interweave stories of Italian heretic Giordano Bruno, young Will Shakespeare, and Elizabethan occultist John Dee — stories that begin to mingle with the narrative of Moffett’s real and dream life in 1970s America. As Moffett’s journey in and out of his comfortable reality continues, what becomes clear is revelatory: there is more than one history of the world.“   }Renaissance Platonism from the Academy founded by Marsilio Ficino and Cosimo de'Medici, had only the slimmest of institutional support in Europe as a distinct discipline. Only a few philosophers, such as Cardinal Bessarion, Nicholas Cusanus, Marsilio Ficino, and Pico della Mirandola, can be unabashedly classified as "Neoplatonists." In the history of ideas, Renaissance Neoplatonism is more important for its diffusion into a variety of philosophies and cultural activities, such as literature, painting, and music.   }nice bio on Bruno. “When he was thirteen years old he began to go to school at the Monastery of Saint Domenico. It was a famous place. Thomas Aquinas, himself a Dominican, had lived there and taught. Within a few years Bruno had become a Dominican priest. Bruno was interested in the nature of ideas. Although the name was not yet invented it will be perfectly proper to dub Bruno as an epistemologist, or as a pioneer Semanticist. He takes fresh stock of the human mind.”   }links about Ægypt.

That is, a list of the books Moore has written, many of which pertain to these Renaissance Studies, on the Library Thing site.   }The Astrological Psychology of Marsilio Ficino by Thomas Moore, with recommended related books on the same page. “Marsilio Ficino, who is almost unknown today, was perhaps the most influential philosopher of his age. It was Ficino who translated from Greek into Latin those first texts that arrived in Florence from Constantinople around 1438-39. It was Ficino who established a new academy in Florence modeled on Plato's academy. Ficino flourished under the sponsorship of the Medici family, and because of his relationship with them and their generosity in support of his academy, he effectively became tutor and intellectual mentor to the Florentine intelligentsia. Looking back with the 20/20 hindsight of the 21st century, it is apparent from what Thomas Moore tells us that Ficino functioned in some ways as a psychotherapist to his friends and students. His letters are full of helpful advice about right living and striving to make of one's life a work of art. The Planets is Ficino's treatise on using one's imagination to apply astrology to that end.”   }page of The Reenchantment of Everyday Life, by Thomas Moore, with recommended related books on the same page. If you want to start to study or understand the Renaissance, this is a book you must include.   }”In this vein, Hillman writes that “Death in the soul is not lived forward in time and put off into an afterlife. It is concurrent with daily life as Hades is side by side with his brother Zeus.”[5] According to Hillman, the problem lies in our “defense against Hades,” or, put differently, our “defensive identities with life.”[6]  So often we do everything in our power to escape (our fear of) death, preferring instead feelings of excitement and invincibility, hope and possibility. We prefer spirit but forget the equally important and deepening present-minded soul.”   }”“It is against this background that we must place also such major Renaissance concerns as reputation (fama); nobility, and dignity. They take on further significance when envisioned within a psychology that bears death in mind. To consider fama merely as fame in our romantic sense puts Renaissance psychology into the inflated ego of the very important person or pop star. But when death gives the basic perspective, then magnificence, reputation, and nobility are tributes to soul, part of what can be done for it during the ego’s short hour on the stage. Then fame refers to the lasting worth of soul and psychology can afford to treat of the grand themes: perfection of grace, dignity of man, nobility of princes.” “   }the Catholics’ view of Bruno.   }brief page on Francis Bacon.   }Bruno links page, books are often from Amazon.   }repeats Kessler’s brief bio of Bruno then 2 more interesting articles.   }synopsis and review of The Astrological Psychology by Ficino.   }Publication information: Book title: Metaphor and Symbol.

In 1509 Agrippa also began writing his magnum opus, Three Books of Occult Philosophy which was finally published in 1531. As is clear from the long delay between the writing and publishing of many of his works throughout his life Agrippa was dogged by ill luck and opposition to his ideas and works.   }illustrated bio of Marsilo Ficino. He led the Florentine Platonic Academy under the Medicis. “Ficino's writing is truly a joy to read as its elegance and clarity reflects the harmony and beauty of the themes he explores. It is unfortunate that translations of his works so quickly go out of print. A case in point is the translation by Kaske and Clarke of Ficino's Three Books on Life. An excellent academic translation, Three Books on Life is Ficino's magnum opus on astrological magic and talismans. This is a key work for anyone interested in Renaissance astrological magic, but sadly, it has just gone out of print.”    }more in-depth page on Agrippa’s philosophy, mentioning his influence on Bruno.

The metaphorical reality of the psyche is more than mere fiction but less than literal. Metaphors are more than symbolic ways of speaking. Metaphors facilitate thought by providing an experiential framework in which newly acquired, abstract concepts may be assimilated. They are ways of perceiving, feeling and existing. Through this imaginal reality we find soul, meaning, and significance in our suffering. Intractable problems create a continuous flow of psychological ideas, “ (Hillman) The Healing Power of Narrative History: "To heal the symptom, we must heal the person, and to heal the person we must first heal the story in which the person has imagined himself." --James Hillman    } The four volumes mingle Moffett's real and dream life in America in 1977 (and, in an extended coda, into the early 1980s) with the narrative of the manuscript he is preparing for publication. The manuscript, left unfinished by its author Fellowes Kraft, is an historical fiction that follows the briefly intersecting adventures of Italian heretic Giordano Bruno and of British occultists John Dee and Edward Kelley. Moffett is trained as a historian, and is under contract to write a popular history covering hermetical themes. Early in the process, he conceives of writing a novel which, it is clear, would be Ægypt; his ruminations on that novel describe the structure of the novel he is in. The novels generally have three main "strands" reflecting on three main characters, one occurring in the present day generally following Pierce or Rosie Mucho in their artistic works, and two occurring in the Renaissance following the historical fictional activities of John Dee, Edward Kelley and Giordano Bruno as written by Fellowes Kraft. The difference is marked stylistically by dashes indicating dialogue for events that happened in the Renaissance and events in the twentieth century marked by dialogue in ordinary English quotation marks.    }wiki bio of Agrippa.  }bio,etc.

For many people, Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity lies hidden behind an impenetrable wall of complicated mathematics, superposed upon the widespread misconception that only those smarter than the average bear, with a penchant for doing long sums, can possibly understand it. However, the truth differs widely from the syllabus. Although mathematics is unnecessary for an understanding as to why cosmology is both logically inconsistent and disconnected from reality, cosmologists routinely resort to mathematical mysticism in their attempts to justify and impose their demonstrably false dogmatic beliefs. In his presentation, Stephen Crothers shall reveal the sacred secrets of tensor calculus and its accoutrements in order to see through the mathematical smoke and mirrors of Einstein and his followers. Anybody with high-school knowledge of the calculus is more than well prepared to deal with these matters. Perhaps this is the most frightening truth cosmologists must face. After all, calculations themselves are mere mechanical operations that impart no knowledge of their purpose in relation to physics. Curiously, neither Einstein knew nor his followers know how to do their sums right. That they don’t add up is sufficient to render them a form of numerology, which, like sympathetic magic and phrenology, does not lead to knowledge.    }(Full Length) Stephen J.

1. Q: I noticed that you don’t have very much about Allen Ginsburg in your Beat category. Why is that?
    A: We feel that Ginsburg and a few others have been over-emphasized. There are movies about him and the Beats and … and so on. So, we’re striving for balance with our Category.
2. Q: Some of the websites in Asteroids have appeared on your previous lists. Why are you repeating them here?
    A: For completeness’ sake, and since not all readers have seen the previous lists; and to provide background for some of the “new” explanations for craters, comets, etc. The same remarks apply to the Comet and Electric Universe, Electric Sun, etc., websites. Any intelligent reader can read and understand these websites: they are chosen that way.

3. Q: So, why do you have Laurie Anderson on your Beats list?
    A: We consider her a Beat-child also, just like Jim Carroll. They’re both, as it were, third-wave or third-generation beats (e.g. Waldman and similar were second-wave, etc.).
4. Q: Then why don’t you have all the Beats on your List? Your List isn’t complete.
    A: Neither are theirs. For example, some would consider Ken Kesey part of the Beat Generation, and from there it isn’t far, culturally, to say, Timothy Leary or Ram Dass (Richard Alpert). Nevertheless, yes, the “first wave” is generally thought of as Kerouac, Ginsberg, Neal Cassady, Burroughs, Gregory Corso, and Herbert Huncke, then Gary Snyder, Ferlinghetti, Michael McClure, Philip Whalen, Lew Welch, and we think also Michael Bowen.
The “second wave” would have been Bob Kaufman, Diane DiPrima, Ed Sanders, Waldman, Ray Bremser, Ted Joans, and say Charles Plymell, Jack Micheline, Herschel Silverman, Marty Matz, Ron Whitehead, and others. To this we have added a “third wave” including Jim Carroll, Laurie Anderson, and others. We also include Robert Kelly as associated with the above, poetically if not any other way, and Charles Bukowski as well. Certainly, Bukowski wrote in what’s considered a “Beat” style in many of his poems.
5. Q: What is Doth?
    A: American Fundamentalist so-called Christians, who wish to force their bizarre values on everyone else if possible. Their name Doth comes from the fact that they read only the old, King James version of the Bible and will allow no other. They are very strict and have some very unusual notions about their Holy Book, and as a consequence of this, about Life, The Universe, and Everything as well. Dr. Dae and I are pleased to bring you this Free List which, thankfully, is blessedly Doth-free.
6. Q: Did you ever participate in Bucky’s World Game?
    A: Yes, twice. Once in Corvallis, Oregon, in 1988, and once in Orange County in the 1970s. (Jae Kamel)
7. Q: Who is your Math List for? It seems to me that Math is a vast field to cover.
    A: Math these days is more like a collection of vast fields to cover. Our list is for the curious and intelligent non-professional, that is, not a Math professional. We try to keep the list deep enough to interest other scholars, yet shallow enough to satisfy the merely curious. We also include a few sites that are suitable for children. In general we try to follow this pattern for all Categories and Lists. No professional will need our lists and none will ever see them, probably. But lots of students and intelligent and curious people will, and so the lists are for them. But there’re always enough links and so on for those that want to study more deeply.
8. Q: Were you being sarcastic in your description of the “cosmology statement” website, above?
    A: Obviously; or, at the least, we were certainly being droll about it.
9. Q: Do you have any other special websites of interest, not shown above, that reflect what you and Dr. Jone Dae have been trying to teach us, or share with us?
    A: Well, you know, just this one:    }if you read this webpage you will surely begin to understand what is important for you to know.
10. Q: Is it true that you’re on Library Thing, Mr. Kamel?
      A:    }this should go to my homepage there. If not,    is my profile there, and    is my library there. Click on “Covers” to see just the book covers displayed.  Dr. Dae is not on Library Thing yet.
Contact me if you cannot view my library there.
11. Q: Is it true that the ancient Greeks did mostly Geometry, and not much Arithmetic or Number Theory?
      A: No. That is a great lie and a very common misconception. Following in the footsteps, so to speak, of the great civilizations that came before them in their part of the world, they were superb Arithmetists and Number therorists. They also inheirited the Babylonians love for math word problems, and wrote at least one that was so hard, and that we still have today, that no modern math student can solve it, either. Computers were used to determine its exact solution in the 20th century.
12. Q: Did John Dee and Giordano Bruno ever meet?
      A: John Crowley thinks that they may have, but he was writing fiction. Their main connection is that they both studied and taught Renaissance Hermetic Philosophy, and surely they did hear of each other. Their lives overlap, in terms of birth- and death-dates, and Bruno was in England for a while when Dee was alive and working for QE 1st , and so on.
13. Q: Don’t scientists today think that people like John Dee, who studied the occult, were insane or stupid?
      A: Obviously, yes, this is true. Unfortunately, people who believe in myths had no place to throw rocks at other people’s myths. And it is useful to remember that people in the Renaissance, say, like Dee, were just as intelligent as today’s scientists are, maybe more so, and that people always have been.
14. Q: Are you saying that today’s scientists believe in myths?
      A: Of course; obviously. That’s why these lists are made, so that people like you can enlighten and educate themselves. For info about our answer, see especially the URLs on this list, and on “The Groundhog List” which preceded this one. All your questions will be answered then if you read the contents of each URL in the relevant categories. For example, there is much more about Archetypal Psychology on the previous list; and so on.
15. Q: Are you and Dr. Dae planning to release any other lists in the future?
      A: Yes. For example, we are considering releasing our “Web Tools” List to the public, to you. We also have a new partner now, Ms. Julie Éclair. She’s produced a Photolist in the same style as our lists, and we’ve agreed to include it with our next distribution. Finally, we are also considering releasing our more formal Research List, and Academic Research List, as well. As always, it is always most useful for you to let us know, via whichever address you received this from, which Lists you liked the most and what you would like to see on future lists.
16. Q: What is Doth?
      A: Doth is the curious language spoken by fundamentalist and evangelical Christians. It is also the name of those same people; the contrast is with ‘Goth’. Consider that the Goth music is the antithesis of the Doth music, and that the appearance of people in the Goth lifestyle is exactly opposite in every way to the appearance of the Doth people. So, then, the fundamentalist and evangelical Christians are called Doth, spelled with a ‘d’ as in ‘dog’, and their opposites are called Goth, spelled with a ‘g’ as in ‘god’. The prime source and example of the Doth language is the King James Version of their Holy Bible, FYI.
17. Q: What is Frontierland?
      A: The name of the state sometimes shown as ‘Colorado’ on maps, etc.
