RODS


http://www.asondheim.org/rods.mp4 long but when hasn't it been
worth it

learning chinese rod arithmetic (precursor of the abacus); positions
slip out but the procedure is simpler and faster. 0 is indicated by
place only, - sometimes 5 sometimes 1 | sometimes 5 sometimes 1 place
is important

the mystery lies in the clearing of the space and its frisson of
rearrangement

in the bone and skeleton of enumeration
bones disappear in evaluation of 0
places slide across surface, skin, world, map

The Revenge of Gaia, Earth's Climate Crisis and the Fate of Humanity,
James Lovelock, Basic, 2006, is the most important book I've read in
years. Read it!
