Lanterno-theology

M. Bartholomess, in his Critical History of Religious Doctrines, has enumerated some French writers such as Reaumur, Bonnet, Trembley, Lyonnet, and Professor Zöckler has added many Germans authors, Fabricius, Richter, Lesser, Zorn, Heinsius, Rathlef, Ahlwardt, Schierach and Preu, who gathered theistic proofs and illustrations from every element and subject of nature, in treatises with pedantic titles, such as:

– hydro-theology = an attempt to excite man’s love and admiration of God by a careful study of the proportions, distributions and proprieties of Water;

– pyro-theology = a similar treatise on Fire;

– ehiono-theology = edifying thoughts on the Snow as a wonderful creation of God;

– litho-theology = spiritual meditation on the Rocks;

– phyto-theology & petino-theology = edifying study of Plants and Birds;

– ichthyo-theology & testaceo-theology & insecto-theology = demonstrations of the perfections of God in Fish, Mussels, Snails, and Insects;

– melitto-theology = illustration of the glorious God in Bees;

– akrido-theology = historical and theological thoughts on Grasshopers;

– bronto-theology = theological views of Thunder and Lightning;

– seismo-theology = glorification of God in Earthquakes.

Dincolo de partea comica, este cea tragica. Incercari disperate, dar inutile, de a pune sens intr-o lume golita de…

Theatrum Pacis [1684]

Click pe imagine pt. detalii

O imagine foarte interesanta, publicata de Wolfgang Moritz Endter. Asa cum puteti vedea, alaturi de Zeii “pagani” se afla si 2 (?) personaje din mitologia crestina: fata cu cadelnita si, cred, cea cu sabia. Deasupra tuturor troneaza – iconoclast – Tetragramatonul.

Evident, asemenea convietuire nu avea cum sa fie privita cu ochi buni… Inclin sa cred ca exemplul de mai sus este unul din ultimele publicate inainte de Marea Curatenie.

Theatrum Pacis… You’re kidding me, wright?! Adica pt. asta si-au dat viata hoarde de martiri, right?! Adica pt. asta Parintii au tunat si au fulgerat secole de-a randul, right?!

Well..let’s put a smirk on that face: psalm 95, 4-5. :D

Marije Meerman – Quants [2010]

Cateva hard-lines:

> Superba folosirea termenului “correlations” in relatie cu termenul “alchimie” (din titlu). Oricum, nu faceti asta acasa, caci, dpdv dogmatic, “correlation is charlatanism“, as we all know.

> Exemplul de la 00.18.24 – 00.19.11 este magnific!

> “It’s a competition between the real world and the elegant world of mathematics. Sometimes the real world it’s just dirty.”

> “I feel like a monk in a monastery…” Pai nu?!

> Google search terms > trading based on what people are searching for.

> What the markets are really about: the companies themselves almost don’t matter. It just about which way their stocks moves. This is all that matters.
