Thus the musician feels Mathematic, the mathematician thinks Music… each to receive its consummation from the other when the human intelligence, elevated to the perfect type, shall shine forth glorified in some future Mozart–Dirichlet, or Beethoven–Gauss – a union already not indistinctly foreshadowed in the genius and labours of a Helmholtz!
This is an occasional blog, though I do have visions of one day becoming a Regular Blogger. I don’t know when that day will come, however. In the meantime, feel free to comment on what’s here. (No guarantee of a timely reply, but I usually will get around to it eventually.)
Noms de Plume:
- (2016 – present): komponisto, the Esperanto word for “composer”, is the pseudonym I have long used on various parts of the internet; in the interest of “harmonization”, I now use it here as well.
- (2007 – 2016): James Cook was the discoverer of Australia and Hawaii. My aspiration is to discover intellectual territory of similar beauty and exoticity. (Included here in case you see references on other blogs.)
