    Finally - an influence from the Mad Genius:

    "If we select any series of points from a straight line, we observe that the immediate association of the mediately associated members belong, with the associations of immediately neighboring points, to one and the same lowest Genus of associations: they are further only different in their respect of their lowest specific difference, whereas this difference itself is unambiguously determined by the difference of the varied mediating associations." III.20

    although unavowed, I'll take it.

    "In the sphere of complex sensuous shapes,
    particularly visual and auditory ones,
    this (--"that the form-contents of higher level...
    always represent complex forms relatively to the ultimately foundational elements"--)
    can be readily illustrated,
    whereas the general fact can be seen a priori from concepts."
    --Edmund Husserl,
    "Logical Investigations: Investigation III, Sub-Section 22."

      One good quote deserves another?

      I think he builds on this in the fourth Investigation with the Idea of pure grammar:

      "...the foundations of speech are not only to be found in physiology, psychology, and the history of culture, but also in the a priori... Every investigator of language operates with notions stemming from this field, whether he is clear on the matter or not." - 4.14

      I like the last part.

      I also like this sentence from III.22 "Is it not absurd to want to bind contents together without any bond?"

    Jumping in in the middle like this may be a near death experience. I plan to bear it with quiet dignity so as to learn and be inspired.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
