I know you’ve been curious, Anna.

I know, Anna, that you are curious. You’ve heard about my book-in-process (for the past two years) and want to know more. Thanks for your curiosity. Speaking of curiosity, I believe it is a deeply embedded human capacity that leads us to that beyond ourselves, whether in the realm of science or the spirit or both. Three cheers for that which sometimes kills the cat, which it occasionally does.

As you know by now, it is entitled The Square Root of God: Mathematical Metaphors and Spiritual Tangents. Even before it’s been published a group has invited me to make a presentation on it at their conference. Good luck to me, or better put, Lord have mercy on me.

I know you have just bitten off enough for a taste. Let me give you an appetizer, something to stimulate your appetite for more. It is a portion of Billy Collins’ poem, Questions About Angels:

Of all the questions you might want to ask
about angels, the only one you ever hear
is how many can dance on the head of a pin ā€¦
It is designed to make us think in millions,
billions, to make us run out of numbers
and collapse into infinity

    Still one of my favorite Billy Collins poems…
    It is worthwhile to remember the entire “curiosity” adage: “Curiosity killed the cat, but satisfaction brought him back.” Satisfaction with idea play should never be undervalued!
