31st January 2003 - A Study of Numbers

I read "A Study of Numbers: A guide to the constant creation of the universe" by R.A. Schwaller de Lubicz. This book reminds me of the movie "A Beautiful Mind" about John Nash who met similar barriers as Descartes when attempting to describe the world and mind respectively with formulas and numbers.

This being said, the book gives food for thought to the very existence of the universe and the degree of chaos that surrounds us. It was interesting to learn about how and to some extent why the representation of the numbers 1 through 10 has great meaning in the mystics of Kabbala as well as ancient Egyptian and Pythagonian mystic.

Another interesting aspect of the book is that it claims science to be locked within patterns that blinds it from the true holistic science. To some extent, I truly believe this claim has a lot of relevance; at least it will serve as a mental note for me to keep glancing for the forest even though surrounded by trees…

The official homepage of Morten Middelfart and CALM. Computer Aided Leadership and Management (CALM) is an inspirational speculation on where mankind may be heading in the quest to leverage computer potentials for helping individuals and organizations to self-actualize their symbiotic potentials.

The time frame for this well-informed and provocative speculation on relatively near-term and more distant potentials is clearly within mankind's grasp. Dr. Middelfart argues persuasively that within the next one or two decades, symbiotic links with "intelligent machines" will surely leverage people's potentials, far beyond all human progress to date!

Altogether, a tour de force of well-informed contemporary insights and maturely reasoned speculation; affording possible stepping stones and a creative springboard for what may lie ahead. As has been said: "Man's reach should exceed his grasp; else what's a heaven for?”
