Thought Word Deed


Here is a page based on what a brief quotation from James Joyce’s FINNEGANS WAKE was based on. For the Thought, I include one of Maxwell’s equations (with a boost from Gauss’s Law); the Word is from my hero Groucho Marx; and the Deed is a crude re-enactment of a portion of the journey that culminated in humanity’s first (hu)manned trip to the Moon. The seemingly-random-but-not juxtaposition is an odd tip of the hat to Joyce, who juxtaposed like crazy, and crazily, in FW. For another hat-tip to him, here’s this:


Lastly, here’s a tip of the hat to Johann Carl Friedrich Gauss mentioned above, possibly the ablest mathematician who ever lived.

  1. Gary, you have some secret information hidden in this page; do you know something we don’t: A Gemini capsule made it to the moon?

    • You are pretty good with your spacecraft identification, Michel. Certainly a Gemini capsule made it high enough to be in the same photo WITH the moon. I hope. 🙂
