20th February 2003 - The Pythagorean Sourcebook and the Stars

For the past 10 days I have been traveling in the US. During my trip, I had an excellent opportunity to rethink some of the algorithms for my processing of the data in the "Management by Stars" project. Right now there is new processing going on which is expected to end in about two days; I have made enhancements so that the multiple regressions will be tested across more than one period, both weekly and bi-weekly averages of satisfaction and energy.

I also brought along "The Pythagorean Sourcebook and Library: An Anthology of Ancient Writings Which Relate to Pythagoras and Pythagorean Philosophy" by Kenneth Sylvan Guthrie, Diogenes Laertius and Joscelyn Godwin. This compilation of sources gives an interesting perspective on the life, research and philosophy of Pythagoras, who was the first person know in history to label himself a philosopher. It is particularly interesting to learn the divine perspective that Pythagoras and his followers put into pure mathematics and numbers. Additionally, the thoughts of eternity, matter and even atoms seem to have not only evolved into contemporary science, but also into the ancient occult and mystics.

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?
