Golden Rule 2.0
Ah, child and youth, if you knew the bliss which resides in the taste of knowledge, and the evil and ugliness that lies in ignorance, how well you are advised to not complain of the pain and labor of learning.
- Christine de Pizan (1364-1440)
For the Love of Learning Already!
Golden Rule 2.0
Inspired by Christine de Pizan's (1364-1440) quote, "Ah, child and youth, if you knew the bliss which resides in the taste of knowledge, and the evil and ugliness that lies in ignorance, how well you are advised to not complain of the pain and labour of learning.". The titled responsion is a homecoming of sorts, ordered and genuine in the revisionary nature that the searching for iteration offers our collective cultural pastime of learning.
As the Golden Rule 2.0 suggests, the re-visionary approval process is one of negotiation with your younger self, an innocent being facing a lifetime of opportunity and struggle that only matures with age, an acquired taste if you will.
For the love of numbers
Inspired by Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz's (1646-1716) quote, "Music is the pleasure the human mind experiences from counting without being aware that it is counting.". The titled responsion is a mathematical pastiche towards the units of humanity, God's language as some say.
Whether you earn to learn or learn to earn, at the foundation of it all is numbers. Not a numerology of sorts but a predictable geometry, symmetrical and Platonic in origin. I must say that the metaphysics of Mathematics really is the closest conversation that we can or Will have with the Goodness that we equivocate to God. We should know the difference but this is an ethical claim, subjective at best, objective for the greatest good, I beg to differentiate. In the end, it should all add up!
