Greetings dear Andrew,

The topic was "Love 8th LO30274", but you have changed it into the above.
Hereby you give us another example why art and science cannot be the same
thing. I would not have done it because no search engine will search for
the aterisk *. Their algorithms just do not provide for it.

But i understand why you did it -- to stress the superiority of love to
the 7Es (seven essentialities of creativity) by which guidance it emerges.

>Perhaps love is connected with a 'creative collapse' at some levels?

Oh, yes, definitely. A "creative collapse" is giving up some part of the
organisation of our lives to gain free energy from it which may then drive
the emerge of some new organisation. But this technical account is ugly.
However, the stories of heroes who have put themselves in great peril to
save others also in peril are heart gripping.

Thank you -- it did for me. I have read too much of his mathematical and
philosophical work which gave me a wrong impression of him -- a calculated
and somewhat cynical person.

With care and best wishes
