a poem
This Earth
by Edwin Carlile Litsey:
This earth is good enough for me
As long as it will hold a tree,
Or lift a flower from its breast,
Or spread a sunset in the west;

As long as I can have the grass
To take my footsteps as I pass,
And feel the sun upon my head
And linger by a tulip bed,

And sense the touch of violet dusk
And smell the evenings subtle musk
And watch the stars come out at night
And know tha everything's all right,

This Earth is good enough for me
Its truest riches all are free;
And I don't care how long I stay
So long as I'm not in the way.

Whe I point a fingher, Three phoint back at mhe.

...Not always

In a way you are right; they have no content, because they show FREEDOM; my posts might help release you from the math-laws of physics, release you from mathematical death...

With tools, the tests are not mathematical but empirical and ethical.

"As" ...and "so" ...
I think... I am humbled.
