  • Is there a corresponding concept for data grace- a process that separates intelligence from information. Here intelligence is information that makes a difference. (I was tempted to say 'matters', but refrained). Gregory Bateson wrote about the concept of intellegence and information in "Mind and Nature",

  • a fractal like pi(e)!
    a mercuric fence

    No one can measure the exact distance around the crust of a pie. The smaller the measure the greater the circumference of the pie. If you used a nano measure the distance around the crust of the pie would approach infinity! And as Annie Dillard said: "Infinity is too small to find!"

    A anagram of 'circumference' is 'mercuric fence'
