For example, data analysis is a rigorous intellectual exercise that requires a great brain power. It's the quest to find the meaning behind the data that offer clues to the grand design underlying the phenomenon attested by the data.

Who amongst those in humanities dare accuse the beautiful minds of John Nash or Albert Einstein of being just instrument to meaningless shallow information? Without those who developed "HTML" or other forms of advanced programming language, which by the way is an outcome of the very rigorous intellectual pursuit of systematic and structural completeness, how can anyone of you even dare easily post and share your comments and ideas on this web space?

Meaning is everywhere in the world of numbers and data to be found if only one has eyes for it. It's simply the narrow minds that feel threatened by the lack of their own ability to see it.

I am certain that Wieseltier does not mean to indict Einstein or other great scientific minds of crimes against the humanities.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
