A Quote by Raphie on psychic gravity and sticking together

If there's no such thing as psychic gravity, then how come we always talk about "sticking together"?

A Quote by Raphie on pigeonholing and pigeonboxing

At least pigeonholes have smooth edges and escape hatches; pigeonboxing is the far greater danger.

A Quote by Raphie on belief, lies, believable fiction, and unbelievable truth

The believeable fiction is far more likely to be believed than the unbelievable truth. As often as not, then, we lie not to deceive, but to be believed.

A Quote by Raphie on wisdom heart knowledge listening

They say knowledge speaks but wisdom listens. That's a good rule of thumb, but sometimes wisdom has no choice but to speak when the ears are stopped, the eyes are closed and the heart is blocked. Maybe why they also say "Confucius talk too much."

A Quote by Raphie on mathematics network economic opportunity wealth fl

Mathematically speaking, if you start from a network of you and one other person, then each time your world doubles in size, it becomes, if you look at all the possible connections, four times smaller and then some. And the "then some" gets twice as big each and every time you double it.

The same dynamic applies in a general way to economic opportunity and savings as it does to networks. In other words, the financially well-off really do have it easier and it gets easier and easier as you go. The guy with 32 bucks in the bank has about 144 times the opportunities as the guy with 2 bucks. Think about that the next time some wealthy politician suggests a flat tax to "level" the playing field.
