Very good, very witty and clear descriptions of the parts of math, especially topology and the infinity/continuum stuff. Was surprised and delighted by the dialogue between the author(?) and an unnamed interlocutor. 4.5/5 stars.

This poetry book is exquisitely written and arranged perfectly. The first poem and the final poem make the entire work an intact whole. Highly recommend.

Aldous Huxley
“Armaments, universal debt, and planned obsolescence—those are the three pillars of Western prosperity. If war, waste, and moneylenders were abolished, you'd collapse. And while you people are overconsuming the rest of the world sinks more and more deeply into chronic disaster.”
Aldous Huxley, Island

Julian
“Who, I ask, ever found salvation through the conquests of Alexander? What city was ever more wisely governed because of them, what individual improved? Many indeed you might find whom those conquests enriched, but not one whom they made wiser or more temperate than he was by nature, if indeed they have not made him more insolent and arrogant. Whereas all who now find their salvation in philosophy owe it to Socrates.”
Flavius Claudius Julianus
