    The world is flat - tallest mountain less than a millimeter above lowest valley


    jeremy duncan - "math is less valuable than fire, because fire was first."

    Most of reality is nearly flat, the tallest mountain far less than a millimeter above the lowest valley. When I think of fire, I imagine an earthquake of our world falling down a large fault line, a few quanta tall as some atoms come apart (up direction) and fall together (down direction) farther in other combinations, and the quake is felt as light, which is the curve of space, echos outward in many directions like a tidal wave, pushing up the nearly flat surface of reality wherever it may hit and everywhere between.

    Everywhere and everything is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Event_horizon  not just the most extreme parts where we normally think of blackholes.

    Fire is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Photoelectric_effect  extended to molecules instead of just electrons, similar to a nuclear explosion emitting light except it doesnt fall that far.

    Fire can no more be separated from math than the way earthquakes echo and fluids fall to their own level.
