Lists Part One (or Novels Part One)

This is what I have in mind for the lists…


Humans love lists. This is not a criticism, merely an observation. Perhaps I will write an essay on this phenomenon related to organizational thought and general mental storage/organization processes. I will also write a lot about literature, one of my deepest passions.

Analytic Continuation

What happens when you take a real complex analyst with his (or her) functions,  zeroes and infinities and limiting continuities; differentiability and the complex compactificationing (big ‘effin deal); his/her belief in topological structure holes-be-damned (resist all inappropriate humor people cmon I’m trying to prove existence here) and his/her random variables representing functions on a probababability space and his/her functions of functions call them functionals clever and their infinite variations perturbacular… and put him/her in a room with a number-theoretic algebraic geometrician with his finite simple group-ies and their symmetries and the combinatorical permutation-nation that constructs all things from unity U(1) or its mirror-symmetric dual U(1) (Ohhhhhh that makes sense cause you can just twist the string at any point or whatever and you get two from one PERFECT) ?
