Through the Prism

After passing through the prism, each refraction contains some pure essence of the light, but only an incomplete part. We will always experience some aspect of reality, of the Truth, but only from our perspectives as they are colored by who and where we are. Others will know a different color and none will see the whole, complete light. These are my musings from my particular refraction.

I Like This Rule

And, of course, I like "eclecticism and cross-fertilization."

That these ideas were spilling across disciplinary borders was due in large part to McCulloch, a dynamo of eclecticism and cross-fertilization. . . . [he] invited experts in these fields, as well as mathematics and electrical engineering. He instituted a Noah's Ark rule, inviting two of each species so that speakers would always have someone present who could see through their jargon.
