Hi Harv
Still most folks UNDER-appreciate the importance of math. Most problems of the biophysical world stem from the innumeracy of
my peers, so to speak. It is also a reason why,
often, a group rejects my view on many topics
-- because they are mathematically illiterate.
Humankind IS on its way to destroying the biosphere because of 'majority rule' politics
and Hoity Teuty clannishness instead of truly
understanding science.
My ontological bias is almost nonexistent
since my reckoning of the universe says only part
of it CAN be reckoned. The rest is invented by our choices.

I would blah blah blah more but you can get the idea.

Mike
