  1. I respectfully object to Winnie the Pooh's analysis. One can learn a great many things from his observation, however extrapolation of this system is limited. Upon simple inspection of the flowing river one can deduce that "You can never step in the same river twice". An astute observer might also conclude "You can never step in the same river once". A great deal of wisdom may even yield some practical (though likely incomplete) notion of impermanence: perhaps a partial understanding of what's meant by "going", but this knowledge constitutes a miniscule (however useful) cross section of the breadth of the knowledge that exists and can be made. Even an accurate observation of everything that is (in a universe that is speculated to be finite and boundless), like a thorough understanding of the fundamental laws of nature, will likely lead to a finite number of useful extrapolations. We must then consider notions that arise from observations made about things that are not real: hypothetical constructs like simple Euclidean spaces. I suspect these are unlimited, and we can derive a fair amount of useful approximations for our own world from them. I conclude that yes, the flowing river is a pragmatic and inviting source of conjecture about the world, but it is anything but complete.

  2. Anonymous,

    Thank you for your insightful and eloquent comments. I formulated a response that I do not care to type out. Shall we discuss it over meat pies?

    Sincerely Yours,
    Lavois [of the foxes]
