Emily Haines, she is just amazing as an artist and a person she makes up 1/5 of my favourite new wave group Metric. just check out these deep lyrics –
With all the luck you’ve had, why are your songs so sad?
Sing from a book you’re reading in bed and took to heart.
All your lives unled, reading in bed
Her breath alive;
The game begins,
a diamond sets,
she is but a kiss upon perfection.
I ask what god makes a creature upon whom angels envy.
Arise my pulse
To coach a man, and moan at his hopelessness
Across a mellow breath of wine.
I knew; I sensed, without her not.
And easing loose a clasp of lace
The game is set, the noose tightens
Another sign of her relenting
Wilds the play of eyes, the wanting her.
But a sin, lesser
And so to hedge my move upon the cue; the cry of deep anticipation, I wait for her, Arrived, emotion raw.
If that is your immediate aim I am your tool.
You’ll be sucked out of my life with a hover.
A poem and a half
Yet deserve but desire more than quaint
Till time ends I wait
Value your company tis but bliss
To know now, to late
But what sweet memories of ages past
That I call Nora, by any other name would smell as sweet?
Ask not! be at peace, good man! For she is justified in herself.
Her breath live; The game has began, a diamond has a rose, she is kiss upon perfection.
ask not what god could make a creature upon whom angels envy.
But what maketh her smile with joy
When pondering one such as Nora. When pondering pure kamā of your aura
Can God count to infinity?
its helpful to distinguish between a potential infinite and an actual infinite sequence. A potential infinite is a series which has a beginning i.e. 0, and is growing indefinitely; infinity serves as a limit of the series which it never reaches. while an actual infinite is a collection which includes an infinite number of members, that is, the numbers of members in the collection exceeds any natural number, so think of it as a massively theoretical number that you can call anything you like e.g. Darrel-million, however the number will always stay the same…infinity .
Counting generates a potential infinite, this is because you are counting a progressive sequence . To say that someone could count to infinity is to say that a potential infinite could be converted into an actual infinite by adding one member at a time. That’s impossible, because for any natural number n, n+1 is always a finite number and not to mention actual infinity has to remain theoretical or the world might explode due to some mad scientist trying to break the laws of the natural world.
The question is, could someone count all the natural numbers one at a time by never beginning but ending at 0? To my mind that is just as impossible as the first task. If you can’t count to infinity, how could you count down from infinity? If I’m right about this, then the series of past events cannot be infinite, either potentially or actually—potentially because it is not growing in a backward direction toward infinity, nor actual because you can’t get through an actually infinite number of items one at a time. So the series of past events must have had a beginning. bamboozled yet? well think of it this way, if you have a library and you have an infinite number of books what happens when you take one book? you are left with infinity, right. so lets say you take infinity and 4 away, you might say the answer is -4 but you are wrong, infinity does not play by the rules of conventional science and can not or should not be used in regular equations, why? that’s because infinity will always give infinity no matter what you do to it. so from this you can deduce the library can never be changed, but we know the universe is always changing so it must have a beginning.
now if god is infinite he can’t be changed he should be able to conjure an actual infinite series but not a potential one. another way to understand this is to accept the god only puts this in motion hence he is pure actuality, so by interacting with a potential series it should turn to an actual one instead.
peace out interwebs, thanks for reading.
