And it reminds me that at one time or another i had such emotional
impact as to be a drag on the development of mathematics. The very words
"imaginary" and "irrational" are illustrative.
I don't remember either my trig or my integral calculus well enpugh to
follow the proof. But that e & i should be combinable into unity is
clearly awe-inspiring. It's always a bit weird to find a relation
between any two constants from different sources.
If you think about the first and last sentences of Wittgenstein's
Tractatus it has something of the impact of a tragic drama.
has also another aspect, which we call the financial aspect
It gives people the power to buy (wages, dividends
which are the power to buy) but it also is the cause of prices
or values, financial, I mean financial values
It pays workers, and pays for material.
What it pays in wages and dividends
stays fluid, as power to buy, and this power is less,
per forza, damn blast your intellex, is less
than the total payments made by the factory
(as wages, dividends AND payments for raw material
bank charges, etcetera)
and all, that is the whole, that is the total
of these is added into the total of prices
caused by that factory, any damn factory
and there is and must be therefore a clog
and the power to purchase can never
(under the present system) catch up with
prices at large,
and the light became so bright and so blindin'
in this layer of paradise
that the mind of man was bewildered
The political economy is incorrect (it clearly presupposes the Trinity
Formula of prices), but how wonderful anyhow. _il miglior fabbro_
