But my most likeminded heroes must be Giordano Bruno (1548 – 1600), Johann Sebastian Bach (1685 – 1750) and Pythagoras (570 BC – 495 BC) – besides everybody who contributed to the evolution of computing.
These Golden Verses are attributed to Pythagoras and end with:
- and Thou Thyself Shalt by Thine God in one translation I read.
Pythagoras is famous for his theorem a2 + b2 = c2. But what I have put into software is his other famous saying:
- All is Number – the subject of a cute 6-min Chinese video which also makes the link to BELIEFS and religion.
I found my favourite quote of Giordano Bruno in the Museum for Telecommunications in Berlin:
- There is no time. There is only movement. For if there was no movement, there would be no time.
