  One day, when the brilliant Chinese Cha'n master Chao-chou was sweeping
the court of the monastery, a man asked him:
-Ch'an monastery supposed to be clean and pure. Why is there dust to sweep?
Chao-chou replied:
-It came... continue...

No. It's how love seals your fate. For years. So, the way I look at it is hate transcends love, therefore I am beyond love. You can call it a hater. But there is no name for what is beyond. The fact that love is a winning entity is the reason I am a hater. But it's not actually hate. It's just beyond, and I am that which is beyond winning and losing. Few know this. And the fighter/lover dualism starts. I will not tolerate it.

vertical line Ok, so how are we going to work out if there's a heaven? Well you could just say that a + x + bx2 = 0 and leave it there or you could measure it on the 24-dimensional Leech lattice - this can be expressed using Buffon's Needle as:
H/175,000,000 + 1,000,000/5,000,000 + 10,000/650,000 + 100/19,000 + 100/12,000 + 7/700 + 7,360 which is to say wow what a bargain.

Now let's get on with some of the more straightforward problems like: is there a God? If you're using the standard p>0.5, then the answer is obviously yes. But don't take my word for it. Look at the probabilities. As you know from the Boylais's postulate, every straight line is a curve and every curve is a straight line and if you add everything up [75% x 1,000 + 24% x {-200) = 750 - 50 = 700] there's more likely to be a God than not, especially if you employ Pascal's Wager. Look at the sequence: GGGGGG and GRRRRR - one looks more uniform, the other more random. Except they both have the same probability of arising. Weird? Uncanny? No not really - neither sequence was random because I wrote them both down.

Now, if you'll excuse me I've got some courgettes to plant out.
