The Apollo mission was estimated to have had a $14 return for every $1 invested. But were they the same dollars? The incommensurable jumps in economics defy normal accounting methods, and Riemann's work on Abelian functions provide an insight into how such leaps can be conceptualized as the substance of economy, rather than as exceptions.

What gets wetter the more it dries? Riddles can help illustrate an important concept for economics and science: the use of metaphor to convey ideas that cannot be stated explicitly. Here, Riemann's use potential theory and Dirichlet's Principle clarify the role of metaphor in language, and the nature of discoveries.

Educating a Renaissance
June 17th, 2011 • 12:00 PM

Transforming the current death spiral of civilization into a Renaissance requires not just political action, such as the immediate passage of Glass-Steagall and the removal of President Obama from office, but also requires a deep change in how the population thinks. This cognitive transformation, which should be what is termed "Educating a Renaissance," begins by training a cadre of young people to rediscover the principles that led to the heights of human power, and thus to understand the process of increasing Man's power over the universe by further discoveries of principle. The LaRouche Movement embodies this process, in both its current slate of six congressional candidates nationwide, and in studying the "Narrow Path" of crucial scientific discoveries, from Plato, through Kepler, Leibniz, Bach, Gauss, Riemann, Einstein, and Vernadsky.

This video was produced for presentation on June 16, 2011, at a conference in Sevastopol, Crimea (Ukraine), called "The First Heraclean Futurological Congress - Justifying the Future."
