 Faustus is gone:
regard his hellish fall


Marlowe

I have just read, in the New York Times Book Review that arrived in yesterday’s mail, a review of Segre’s Faust in Copenhagen.  The review, on news stands next Sunday, was titled by the Times “Meta Physicists.”

On Faust— today’s noon entry and yesterday’s “Nightmare Lessons.”

On “Meta Physicists“– an entry of June 6, on Cullinane College, has a section titled “Meta Physics.”

On Copenhagen— an entry of Bloomsday Eve, 2004 on a native of that city.

Another Dane:

“Words, words, words.”
Hamlet

Another metaphysics:

“317 is a prime,
not because we think so,
or because our minds
are shaped in one way
rather than another,
but because it is so,
because mathematical
reality is built that way.”

 — G. H. Hardy,
A Mathematician’s Apology
