Diana, I have a copy of that book around somewhere. A little black paper back,
I believe. I couldnt get through it. Sometimes the cat chases his tail,
sometimes he doesnt. I had bought it at a book fair with another book about
infinity that I had found much more interesting. He talked of  Transfinite
numbers and such. I enjoyed that one very much. But The other book did not
strike me as exceptionally inspired.
What especially intrigues me are numbers on the edge. Numbers so huge we have
trouble understanding them, and their inverses, so small we could never notice
them, or distinguish them if they were added onto our precious integers...What
did you get out of Carse's book, that apparently I did not? Curious in the
deep south, Dan.


A. A violent order is disorder, and
B. A great disorder is an order. These
Two things are one. (Pages of illustrations.)
