And Don't Slip

Andrew Sullivan has an ongoing discussion of infinity going, and I grudginly am bookmarking because I "should" try to understand this stuff.
(In fact, I have a Neflix envelope on my desk containing the Nova segment on fractals. But only because I think they're pretty.)

My favorite comment so far:
One of the keys to math is not looking down.

  1. When you understand infinity, could you put it on an index card and mail it to me? Fractals blow my mind. So do diatoms because they look like mandalas. Then we get into the golden mean and phi and the Fibonacci sequence and I start to see god.
