“all things are numbers.” Pythagoras himself spoke of square numbers and cubic numbers, and we still use these terms, but he also spoke of oblong, triangular, and spherical numbers. He associated numbers with form, relating arithmetic to geometry. His greatest contribution, the proposition about right-angled triangles, sprang from this line of thought: “The Egyptians had known that a triangle whose sides are 3, 4, 5 has a right angle, but apparently the Greeks were the first to observe that 3²+4²=5², and, acting on this suggestion, to discover a proof of the general proposition. Unfortunately for Pythagoras this theorem led at once to the discovery of incommensurables, which appeared to disprove his whole philosophy. In a right-angled isosceles triangle, the square on the hypotenuse is double of the square on either side. Let us suppose each side is an inch long; then how long is the hypotenuse? Let us suppose its length is m/n inches. Then m²/n²=2. If m and n have a common factor, divide it out, then either m or n must be odd. Now m²=2n², therefore m² is even, therefore m is even, therefore n is odd. Suppose m=2p. Then 4p²=2n², therefore n²=2p² and therefore n is even, contra hyp. Therefore no fraction m/n will measure the hypotenuse. The above proof is substantially that in Euclid, Book X.” (Bertrand Russell, History of Western Philosophy) This shows how Pythagoras’ formulation immediately led to a new mathematical problem, namely that of incommensurables. At his time the concept of irrational numbers was not known and it is uncertain how Pythagoras dealt with the problem. We may surmise that he was not too concerned about it. His religion, in absence of theological explanations, had found a way to blend the “mystery of the divine” with common-sense rational thought.

crying in the rain

Hindi lahat ng umaalis ng Pilipinas ay nagtatagumpay, mapapalad ang mga
nagtatagumpay sa ibang bayan, marahil ang iba ay may gustong patunayan, may
kailangang tulungan, ang ibang nasa America ay kinakain na lamang ang pride,
at tuluyang maglaho ang kanilang pagkatao at respeto sa kanilang sarili, ngunit
nasa America man tayo o sa Pilipinas, CEO man tayo sa Wall Street o Bay
Street, o fish ball vendor sa Valero….we are equal in the face of the
LORD…..don’t let me feel so sorry....
I'll never let you see
The way my broken heart is hurting me
I've got my pride and I know how to hide
All the sorrow and pain
I'll do my crying in the rain
If I wait for cloudy skies
You won't know the rain from the tears in my eyes
You'll never know that I still love you
So though the heartaches remain
I'll do my crying in the rain
Raindrops falling from heaven
Will never wash away my misery
But since we're not together
I'll wait for stormy weather
To hide these tears I hope you'll never see
Someday when my crying's done
I'm gonna wear a smile and walk in the sun
I may be a fool
But till then, darling, you'll never see me complain
I'll do my crying in the rain
I'll do my crying in the rain
I'll do my crying in the rain
I'll do my crying in the rain

Beethoven - Love Letters of Great Men


July 6, in the morning


My angel, my all, my very self - Only a few words today and at that with pencil (with
yours) - Not till tomorrow will my lodgings be definitely determined upon - what a
useless waste of time - Why this deep sorrow when necessity speaks - can our love
endure except through sacrifices, through not demanding everything from one another;
can you change the fact that you are not wholly mine, I not wholly thine - Oh God, look
out into the beauties of nature and comfort your heart with that which must be - Love
demands everything and that very justly - thus it is to me with you, and to your with me.
But you forget so easily that I must live for me and for you; if we were wholly united you
would feel the pain of it as little as I - My journey was a fearful one; I did not reach here
until 4 o'clock yesterday morning. Lacking horses the post-coach chose another route, but
what an awful one; at the stage before the last I was warned not to travel at night; I was
made fearful of a forest, but that only made me the more eager - and I was wrong. The
coach must needs break down on the wretched road, a bottomless mud road. Without
such postilions as I had with me I should have remained stuck in the road. Esterhazy,
traveling the usual road here, had the same fate with eight horses that I had with four -
Yet I got some pleasure out of it, as I always do when I successfully overcome
difficulties - Now a quick change to things internal from things external. We shall surely
see each other soon; moreover, today I cannot share with you the thoughts I have had
during these last few days touching my own life - If our hearts were always close
together, I would have none of these. My heart is full of so many things to say to you - ah
- there are moments when I feel that speech amounts to nothing at all - Cheer up - remain
- my true, my only treasure, my all as I am yours. The gods must send us the rest,
- what for us must and shall be -
-
-
Your faithful LUDWIG.

hangang
wency cornejo
Ilang ulit mo bang, itinatanong sakin 
kung hanggang saan,hanggang saan, hanggang kailan, 
hanggang kailan mag tatagal, 
ang aking pag mamahal, 
hanggang may himig pa akong naririnig, 
dito sa aking daig-dig 
hanggang may musika akong tinataglay, 
ika'y iniibig 
giliw wag mo sanang isiping
  ikaw ay aking lilisanin, 
di ko magagawang 
lumayo sayong piling 
at nais kong malaman mo 
kung gaano kita kamahal 
hanggang ang diwa ko'y 
tanging sayo laan 
mamahalin kailanman 
hanggang pag ibig ko'y 
hanggang walang hanggan 
tanging ikaw lamang 
hanggang may himig pa akong naririnig 
dito sa aking daig-dig 
hanggang may musika akong tinataglay 
ika'y iniibig 
giliw wag mo sanang isiping 
ikaw ay aking lilisanin 
di ko magagawang 
lumayo sayong piling 
at nais kong malaman mo 
kung gaano kita kamahal 
hanggang may puso akong 
marunong mag mahal 
na ang sinisigaw ay lagi ng ikaw 
hanggang saan hanggang kailan 
hanggang kailan kita mahal 
hanggang ang buhay ko'y 
kunin ng may kapal 
giliw wag mo sanang isipin 
ikaw ay aking lilisanin 
di ko magagawang 
lumayo sayong piling 
hanggang may pag ibig 
laging isisigaw, tanging ikaw 
hanggang may pag ibig 
laging isisigaw, tanging ikaw

Top 1% earn as much as the poorest 57%

Larry Elliott and Charlotte Denny
Guardian

Friday January 18, 2002

The world's richest 50m people earn as much as the poorest 2.7bn and may soon be forced to live in heavily protected gated communities to escape the resentment of the billions living below the poverty line, a senior World Bank economist warns today.

Research from Branko Milanovic, published today in the Economic Journal, shows a staggering increase in global inequality, which has been rising as rapidly internationally as in Britain under Mrs Thatcher.

In a wide ranging study covering 85% of the world's population from 91 countries, Mr Milanovic has found that the richest 1% of the world have income equivalent to the poorest 57%.

Four fifths of the world's population live below what countries in North America and Europe consider the poverty line. The poorest 10% of Americans are still better off than two-thirds of the world population.

"We can wonder how long such huge inequalities may persist in the face of ever closer contacts, not least through television and movies, where opulent lifestyles of the rich influence expectations and often breed resentment among the poor," said Mr Milanovic.

"Should it be of concern to the rich? Perhaps, if we believe that wide income gaps lead to immigration and resentment breeds terrorism. For ultimately, the rich may have to live in gated communities while the poor roam the world outside those few enclaves."

Mr Milanovic said there were three main reasons for the increase in global inequality. Firstly there has been a growing gulf between sluggish rural incomes in Africa and several populous Asian countries such as India and Bangladesh compared with the rich west.

Secondly the shock treatment administered to the former Soviet Union and its satellites in eastern Europe emptied out the global "middle class". Before the fall of the Berlin wall, most citizens in socialist countries had incomes between those in the rich west and the impoverished south.

Finally, China's embrace of the market economy has opened up a divide between more affluent urban dwellers and poor farmers in the world's most populous country.

Mr Milanovic's research compares inequality in 1988 with the position five years later. However, he has since used 1998 data to check his findings and said that the level of inequality globally has remained the same.

The study used a measure of inequality known as the Gini coefficient which uses a scale from zero to 100 where zero is a completely equal country and 100 is a country where one person has all the money.

Mr Milanovic said that the world's Gini coefficient was 66 - double that in Britain - and equivalent to 66% of people having zero income and the remaining 34% dividing the entire world among themselves equally.
