"My observations of the Universe convinces me that there are beings of intelligence and power of a far higher quality than anything we can conceive of as human; that they are not necessarily based on the cerebral and nervous structures that we know; and that the one and only chance for mankind to advance as a whole is for individuals to make contact with such Beings." -- A. Crowley

    In this clear and engaging analysis, Devlin sets forth a thesis quite contrary to common experience: that reasoning about relationships between mathematical objects is no different from reasoning about human relationships between people, and that this similarity in reasoning explains the origin of mathematics.

    We think of 'things' in our world. We think of objects, which have... properties. The floor is flat and solid; the body is heavy and weighs a certain number of pounds. We think of this as if they are all "things," standing alone without regard to all the other things in our reality. We think of their attributes as indisputable.

    Yet the dynamics of how reality works are about relationships, not about things. It is not so important what I weigh. What changed was not the weight of my body, but my body's relationship to the ground, and to you, and to your attempt to lift me. All three of those relationships are involved in the process of your lifting me.

    Oh yeah, we all know the government is supersecretly doing RV. We just can't believe that big a group of people could be ignorant and uninterested. It could be lurking in every closet big enough for two people. In every project funded well enough for a good recliner. We'll catch NSA and their Big RV Closet, just you wait.

    For those who don't want to wait, Remote Viewing comes up now and then in tabloid-style stories. These are usually not as well written as the tabloids at the store, and not as interesting either, but given there isn't much media coverage of RV, we take what we can get.

    Of all the missions TKR has done, some of my faves are their planet-related missions. Like there was "Something on Mars" that I tasked in the early days (years ago), the "Mars Home Plate" that Benton tasked over a year ago, and there are some earth-bound tasks that are directly about anomalies that are pretty fascinating, from The Dropa Enigma to The Metal Ball Mystery, both of which sort of defy 'technology we have/had available, far as we know' and make one wonder about the larger universe around us.

    I also sometimes wonder, since I tend to grant "some degree of awareness" to everything, and "identity" to many things most people wouldn't, if planets themselves may have a pretty rocking-sized sentience that might make ours look pretty puny by comparison. Ever since my session with Ganymede I've been wondering that.

    Not just about planets, but about targets on a larger scale. How much of what we perceive is about what the target chooses to share with us?
