It began as the GODFATHER OF MATH, evolved into the GOODFATHER OF MATH. Now this. Go figure...

Dividius: The Forgotten Philosopher

________________________________________________________________________________________________

What is not subject to gravity
is subject to anti-gravity.

If nothing goes up,
nothing will come down.

It is either night or day.

If it is not one,
it is the other.

Either you are with me
or you are against me.

I am me and you are not.

Listen to people as much as possible,
then forget an equal amount.

1569-1666

Footnote
Unfortunately, Dividius escaped noticed by all indices
of philosophical history exclusive of
the Institute of Inane Research.

Dividius of Samos was a personal tutor
of Pythagoras, his young neighbor.

Unfortunately, the link to the island
of Dividius' birthplace contains
not a singular reference to the tutor of
The Father of Mathematics.

Thus, Dividius of Samos
is the copyrighted property
of  LCSoL.

The best living example of the quote
Listen to people as much as possible
then forget an equal amount
is President Donald Trump. 

The next GoFather/Trump page
—in which he is referred to
as THE BIG ENCHILADA—
is  here.
