@fermatslibrary: 1729 was the number of the cab that G.H. Hardy took when he visited S. Ramanujan in the hospital.

Hardy thought it was a "dull number" and Ramanujan replied "it is a very interesting number. It is the smallest number expressible as the sum of two cubes in two different ways". https://t.co/AgN8oJ1F4G

@jasonhickel: What we call "growth" is ultimately a process of enclosure, commodification, and elite accumulation. That anyone would regard this as a reasonable objective for the economy, or indeed as a proxy for human progress, is testament to the totalizing ideological power of capital.
