Lieibniz discovered I Ching/binary isomorphism as soon as
first European edition of I Ching appeared

If I Ching and internet are isomorphic, and some people suspect
them both of thinking, then human neurology, also
binary, may also think....?

Kontos -- i don't know why but the isomorphism seems real to me.
See next week's assignment

Bogusmagus -- i discovered all those errors [except one] as soon as the book appeared...
can't correct 'em until the second printing

Thanks for the heads-up about the furlined tea-cup. i never suspected
myself of infallibiity anyway.

Pound's hell, purgatory, heaven
based on Dante's note that these
represent states, not places

hell -- state of those ruled by passion & obsession

purgatory -- state of those achieving or attempting balance/objectivity

heaven -- state of those who achieve union by love

83  Course Assignments / WEEK SIX / Re: In Canto 34 John Quincy Adams gets the first Chinese ideogram in the whole poem on: September 21, 2005, 11:20:06 AM
My first chinese dictionary defined it as "man,"
current dict'ry as "person"

It shows a biped.

"words," by the way. shows mouth + waves....sound-waves I suppose

Dust on my head that i have trod this Earth for 73 year
without learning more Chinese

Tindall gives page by page commentary, not line by line, but
seems excellent to me -- witty and very helpful

Roland McHugh ANNOATIONS TO FINNEGANS WAKE line by line
and great, but one needs Tindall first to get oriented

THE PLOT SUMMARY presents an oiginal thesis which
I find kooky

If Psmith can't remember, I hope somebody else can...?

I think Crick, not Watson, did this, but don't feel sure

Crick also urged the theory of Cosmic Panspermia

The original begins
"My credo is....."

If Pound cut nothing, he'd lose the effect of fragments/luminous details/ideograms

If he cut more and gave us 'Despotism or absolute power' etc
he's also lose that effect

As fer the idea, I agree with Adams and Ez
-- without a limiting constitution, democracy can
become as bad as any other despotism.
See recent history of U.S. & total
rejection of Bill of Rights

Ez didn't think his broadccasts suported fascism
just opposed war

I think he got a bit nutz but not as nutz as
those who think him a fascist

Cf Jane Fonda on Vietnam rumble

"direction of the will"
determnes location

Pound & Joyce supplement each other
like Jefferson & Adams

50 years to the very hour after the Declaration was signed,
some say.

John's last words:
"Jefferson still survives."
He got that wrong -- no internet.
