An odd quote from my Spinoza manuscript

“All things are necessitated by God with stark raving geometrical necessity.”

I like the ring of that.

    Perhaps it rings true because it is true? Did you say it or Spinoza?

    I said it on his behalf. As I said, I like the ring of it, but I’m not sure it’s a truthy ring; more like an ah-oo-gah! horn sort of noise.

    Hi Charlie!

    I really quite like that the ring of your quote. It packs in a great deal of philsophical baggage and Spinoza scholarship in one sentence!

    Well done!
