An American mega-savant. He passed away a few years ago.**You can find a nice picture of a Codex if you google "da Vinci codex Atlanticus".It is also a good name for a well-read protagonist. I guess we will find out.Bill Gates bought da Vinci's Codex Leicester at auction in the mid 1990s.I have a full set of the encyclopedia Britannica here from the 1880s. Wish I had a climate controlled room for it!

He was the inspiration for Rain Man, but they characterized his uniqueness as autism.Back to sleep now - one of the cats woke me up by trying to lie on my pillow.

C, QuoteI can't make head nor tail of this one! Because it is information from the edge of the coin! (and not any coin)Over and over I told one not should exclude the very low (Well conditional is more correct. Find, or at least look careful for hidden conditions before you place your "bet" Sir!) probability of falling on the edge, or even coming silver spoon up. As long as you do not mix Codex Bobiensis (k) with Codex K. you are doing fine at this (early) point in time. Codex Bobiensis (k) My favorite book (thesis) on coins isDe Nummis quibusdam ex chymico metallo factis. In these modern times even in electronic format, I prefer to read it on paper, it is in mega bookshelf. The version where it is just a chapter of that very thick book is likely the best version. A small side step, paper quality in books form 1500 to 1600 often superior to quality in todays books...(but yes there could also be a survival ship bias here). Below a treasure from 1688 (don't ask about the author, it was quite common for books to be written under pseudonyms or even as anonymous back then, at least if you had something clever to say (Persecution of Heretics (by Heretics) was common back then...):

The price dynamics are a function of the rules but the rules are a function of the price dynamics. How should one play the game when the rules of the game state that one can change the rules of the game.

"What's this chain of konscious reasoning leading to? "I just try to understand the world around me, and reading ancient books is part of it. The book in photo below is in Latin, working slowly on translating it into English (well not me, someone at the university that knows Latin), but will take some time. I have not seen this book before, got it from an auction. "leading to? "Only time can tell I guess.
