Miserando atque eligendo


172.    May remember,
A thing,
That holds,
Something in place,
A yearning desire,
Running lengthwise,
Involving information about,
An individual or group,
Gathered over,
A prolonged period,
The spear of destiny,
Aware,
Or unaware,
Of information,
Known to only,
A privileged few,
Almost,
Let go of,
A pawn,
Into a queen,
When it reaches,
The opponent's end,
Of the board.

173.    Who, what, which,
A guide,
Who was reached,
The highest rank of proficiency,
From,
Fourth part of a measure,
A platform,
Lying alongside or projecting into,
Water,
For,
A pun loading and unloading ships,
Convey in or as in,
A chariot,
From,
Repay,
The rebirth of a soul in a new body,
Hold, fixed,
To assign,
If equals are,
Subtracted from equals,
Then the remainders are,
Equal.

174.    The fifth letter of the Greek alphabet,
A thing that has an equalizing effect,
Equals sign,
An arbitrarily fixed date,
Relative to which planetary,
Or stellar measurements,
Are expressed,
Significant news,
One out of many,
Paradoxical anecdote,
Or riddle,
Used in Zen Buddhism,
To show the,
Inadequacy,
Of logical reasoning,
And provoke enlightenment,
Read, recite,
A property,
Or group of properties,
Of something without which,
If would not exist,
Or be what it is.

175.    Frenchman,
A member of an ancient,
Jewish sect of the second century,
Insert,
To be,
Church or religion collectively,
Wherever I go,
It will be with me,
A belief that,
Things have a set of characteristics,
Which make then,
What they are,
Selfless concern for,
Well-being of others,
A person seen indistinctly,
A monk, nun, or lay member of a,
Christian religious order,
Following the rule of,
Saint Francis of Assisi.

176.    Ut pictura poesis,
One thousandth of an inch,
Performed with,
Regard to,
Every detail,
Known that,
They need not,
Be recounted again,
Her name was Rose,
Though no-one called her that,
The left-hand side,
Of the human brain,
Which is believed to be associated with,
Linear and analytical thought,
A left handed person,
Of or relating to the,
Work of the German philosopher and mathematician,
Gottfried Leibniz,
Bring to completion,
Ideas are compounded of very small number of,
Simple ideas,
Which form the,
Alphabet of,
Human thought.

177.    A piece of illogical or fallacious reasoning,
Especially one which appears,
Superficially logical,
Of events or phenomena,
Supposedly beyond the scope,
Of normal scientific understanding,
The notion that,
Work expands,
So as to fill the time available,
For its completion,
Used to call for attention,
Well intentioned,
Even if misguided,
The direct vote,
Of all the members of,
An electorate or an important public question,
But,
As I bid you,
Remember to work the land.

178.    Place one's hand,
So that,
The thumb touches one's nose,
And the fingers are spread out,
In order to express contempt,
A throw of,
Two ones with a pair of dice,
To bite,
Complex ideas,
Proceed from simple ideas,
By uniform and symmetrical combination,
Which is analogous to,
Arithmetical multiplication.
How the leopard changed his spots,
A signal or wave,
Human epithelial cells of a strain maintained in tissue culture,
Since nineteen-fifty-one,
And used in research,
Especially in virology,
Things which coincide with one another,
Are equal to,
One another.

  1. In mathematics (particularly calculus), an arbitrarily small positive quantity is commonly denoted ε; see (ε, δ)-definition of limit.
    In reference to this, the late mathematician Paul Erdős also used the term "epsilons" to refer to children (Hoffman 1998, p. 4).
    In mathematics, Hilbert introduced epsilon terms \epsilon x.\phi as an extension to first order logic; see epsilon calculus.
    In mathematics, the Levi-Civita symbol.
    In mathematics, to represent the dual numbers: a + bε, with ε2 = 0 and ε ≠ 0.
    In mathematics, sometimes used to denote the Heaviside step function.[citation needed]
    In set theory, the epsilon numbers are ordinal numbers that satisfy the fixed point ε = ωε. The first epsilon number, ε0, is the limit ordinal of the set {ω, ωω, ωωω, ...}.
    In computing, the precision of a numeric data type and floating-point machine epsilon.
    In computer science, the empty string, though different writers use a variety of other symbols for the empty string as well, usually the lower-case Greek letter lambda (λ).
    In physics, the permittivity of a medium.
    In physics and electronics, the emf of a circuit
    In physics, the strain of a material (a ratio of extensions).
    In automata theory, a transition that involves no shifting of an input symbol.
    In astronomy, the fifth-brightest star in a constellation (see Bayer designation).
    In astronomy, Epsilon is the name for Uranus' most distant and most visible ring.
    In planetary science, ε is the denotion of axial tilt.
    In chemistry, the molar extinction coefficient of a chromophore.
    In economics, ε refers to elasticity.
    In statistics, to refer to error terms.
    In agronomy, to represent the "photosynthetic efficiency" of a particular plant or crop.

    Ne epsilon'muş be kardeşim...

    Çok keyifli bu metinleri okumak, bazen çözmeye çalışmak, bazen bunu dert edinmeden öyle okuyup gitmek. Şiir gibi oldukları için senin okumanı dinlemek isterdim doğrusu.

    Belki bu yüzden biz inancıklar, bir türlü o eşit olanı bir türlü bulamıyoruz, çünkü aslında gerçekten karşılaşamıyoruz, aynı zamanda ve aynı yerde, olmuyoruz, olamayız. Mantıksal olarak imkansız.

    Herşeyden önce BİR "One" ve DİĞERİ "another" olma durumunu, hem de ikisini birden olmak, çok zor.
