Perelman's lesson

Moral: Wherein we consider that there are those for whom the sirens, related to the big chimera, have no hold. These are the 'real' kings (as opposed to the interlopers who are ruining everyone's world) who allow us to hope that we can develop the real backbone of the economy which is necessary for our future and that of our progeny.


In this day, when the www allows unconscionable exposures to the trivial, via means like twitter, we have a phenomenon like Grigori Perelman to ponder. Not only did he do work for the ages, his sense of justice is remarkable.

As said before, monkeyed up mathematics, abetted by the computer, has wrecked havoc through things like 'quant' views that are rampantly being imposed everywhere.

Yes, folks, we have allowed a type of idiocy to be superposition'd over ourselves in a mode that is accelerating quickly. Characterizing this, for the means of understanding and for the purpose of managing (that is, growing up beyond the diaper'd (yes, many CEOs and their ilk) set), seems (ought?) to be a topmost priority.


05/08/2013 -- We'll get back to the topic of misuse but, for now, consider this. If there is such effort and resource needs for proofs (CACM April, 2014 - we'll get back to this more fully), how can the cowboys be comfortable with the spawning systems willy-nilly upon the hapless populace? Oh, of course, money as the motivation (and principle means of measurement). God help us.

04/20/2011 -- Simple living (see Remarks 04/15/2011 - game theory), as opposed to greediness.

04/04/2011 -- Need to look at some background.

03/17/2011 -- On the rise of the professional politician (will there ever be the citizen polico? that is, those who do not salivate when a buck is passed beneath the nose) toward robber barony. The M & Ms are apropos. As well, need to bring in Schervish's viewpoint.

01/03/2011 -- Ah yes, now there are demands. The question remains: what growth other than the pockets of these types?

12/05/2010 -- Raj Patel has the proper grasp on the 'financial madness' that is threatening us.

08/30/2020 -- Can't blame Ben for liking Jackson Hole. But, those driving our money systems need to take a vow of simple living.

07/02/2010 -- Remember, our bane: politicos, and some economists, are those who salivate when a buck is passed beneath their noses. Let me have 10 Grigoris, and we would put the proper foundation beneath the economic reality.
