About Immortality

“There is nothing very remarkable about being immortal; with the exception of mankind, all creatures are immortal, for they know nothing of death. What is divine, terrible, and incomprehensible is to know oneself immortal. I have noticed that in spite of religion, the
conviction as to one’s own immortality is extraordinarily rare. Jews, Christians, and Muslims all
profess belief in immortality, but the veneration paid to the first century of life is proof that they truly believe only in those hundred years, for they destine all the rest, throughout eternity, to rewarding or punishing what one did when alive.”
Borges Jorge Luis, The Immortal

About Singing

“Somewhere behind the church they began to sing a glorious, mournful song. The words they could not catch and only the voices could be heard — two tenors and a bass. All were listening; there was complete stillness in the yard. . . . Two voices suddenly broke off with a loud roar of laughter, but the third, a tenor, still sang on, and took so high a note that every one instinctively looked upwards, as though the voice had soared to heaven itself.”
Anton Chekhov, Peasant Wives

For some reason people no longer sing together. Only performers on the stage sing today.

About Fractals

“Bare trees in winter look like estuaries of rivers and like anatomical drawings of the human circulatory system.”

N. Lesmoir-Gordon, W. Rood & R. Edney, Fractals a Graphic Guide

Is the World Perfect?

 

“I knew I’d shattered the balance of the day, the spacious calm of this beach on which I had been happy.”
Albert Camus, The Stranger

Perhaps we believe that the human world is in constant chaos.

But perhaps those who say that the world is mathematical perfection are right.  This confidence is probably  based on mathematical formulas and models. And they are suitable only for scientists.

For ordinary people it seems that the most important are signs and symbols with whom they meet every day. So as not to violate the perfect living space, humans should be more  vigilant and careful.
