Haiku About Alan Turing

Take Alan Turing
it took an enigma to
crack an enigma

    I have the enigma to crack the code, but without the logic. That’s because I am an artist – not a mathematician. 😉

      Yes, I’m not a mathematician either.

      But I majored in Philosophy in University and my dad told me that was one of the marks of a mathematically reasoning mind, to be good in philosophy.

      But I told him, “How can I have a mathematically reasoning mind when I was so terrible in math in school?”.

      He said that just because I had trouble using the symbols that are the representations of universal mathematics did not mean I did not have a mathematically reasoning mind.

      I just reasoned by using the concepts and symbols of the language in which I was raised (English) but just had trouble when confronted with numbers and formulae which are the representations of universal mathematics.

      Indeed I flunked a course in Symbolic Logic which was converting arguments of language into mathematical formulae and as a result of that, I wasn’t able to go into Grad Studies in Philosophy because Grad Schools in Philosophy at the time thought every potential Philosopher should be like Wittgenstein and be able to convert language into mathematical formulae even though linguistic analysis was a branch of philosophy in which I had no interest.

      I was more interested in Metaphysics.

        You sound like Professor Robert, the fictional professor of religious iconology and symbology in Dan Brown’s books if Illuminati and Da Vinci Code. hehehe … I had all his books. What symbols can do and what lies behind its amazing histories. And it is always including with maths too. And pentagram has Math in it too. I am not that smart to be good enough in Maths. I am a writer and an artist. I know only beautiful words written with my mind. 🙂

    • draculvanhelsing said,

      And what very beautiful words you write, my artistic friend. 🙂

      Yes, I’ve noticed in reading Dan Brown’s books, I’m a lot like Professor Robert in temperament and personality.

      We differ in that I believe in the Incarnate Deity of Christ and I don’t think Jesus was married to Mary Magdalene.

      Not that I think there would have been anything wrong with Jesus being married to Mary Magdalene.

      It’s just that according to His own teaching He was to be married to the entire human race through His Church.

      The Church was the Bride.

      And He was the Bridegroom.

      And according to His own teaching, for a man to have more than one wife was adultery.

    Perfectly aphoristic.
