a poem by a collectively unconscious amigo:
The spirit of inquiry comes from the heart.
Where it lives there's no need to force it.
Where it's dead there's no way to argue it
into being -- it demands an external shock
or an internal quake, a sense of anharmony
to kick-start it back to the realm of life.
But don't underestimate the persistence of
a static status quo to insulate its static
atmospherics from all hope of resuscitance,
by all the available routines of authority,
parochial isolation, not to say xenophobia.

here are a couple of what e calls
"principles of attribution" (poa's),
"rules of engagement" (roe's), or
"truth in labeling laws" (till's)
that e sent me to estow here so
that e & i can emull them over.
 1.  When we say that "P originated the Q-theory of R", the phrase Q
     should be one that P actually used, characteristically and as
     a matter of principle, to describe P's theory of R.
 2.  When we want to report the fact that the source S describes
     P's theory of R as a T-theory of R, then we should say that
     "S describes P's theory of R as a T-theory of R".

nb.  for those who don't know em as well as i do,
     e* = sum_[k>=0] e^k = e^0 + e^1 + e^2 + e^3 + ...
     i hope that was interesting and/or useful to y'all.
