I love this – mostly because all the things being newly named represent moments when you break free of your personal narrative, have a look around and realize that you are experiencing the human condition. Where you go, these aren’t merely my personal feelings, this is a pattern that exists due to the nature of what we are.
Part of that nature is the ability to take concepts so enormous and complex that they threaten to overwhelm the mind, and encapsulate all that meaning within tiny little packages we call words. Or equations. Or functions. It’s what lets a finite mind grapple with the notion of infinity.

Not allowed to teach kids things. No, not even if you are a teacher and you are in school and they are your students.
It’s harder to control people who understand the world in which they live.
