If any of you Philosophers had planned to come to ‘Your inner Rhino.com’ for an explanation of Gottlob Frege’s Puzzle, you will be disappointed.
We Rhinos have tried looking into it, the puzzle that is, but We got nowhere.
Rhinos know a lot, but We stop short of Knowing Everything.
Here is a subject for Consideration, dear Readers: The DNA difference between you and a Rhino is only 2% variation! That’s Science talking there, Friends.
Common Sense informs Us that you and We are almost the same. You read ‘Your Inner Rhino’ and imagine how We got so Amazing.
Do not ask where your inner Rhino is; it’s inside You!
On any topic, in any situation, there are a gazillion Variables to assess. No matter what Conclusion We arrive at, there is usually a lurking doubt, here and there. The Big What-Ifs?
Rhinos like to be Decisive and Dynamic. But that does not make Us Right.
Hypatia was a 4th century specialist in philosophy, mathematics, and astrology. She lived in Egypt and was highly regarded, being the first female mathematician about whom much is known today.
Unhappily, nothing she wrote is directly known, though she had quite a reputation among philosophers of her day.
We hail Hypatia’s achievements, despite the fact that We Rhinos never much understood her.
There is much discussion of Seeing, Smelling, Tasting, Touch, and Hearing. They are all useful capabilities, and Rhinos are glad to have them. Like many other Critters.
But Rhinos are also Sense-itive in a range of other ways, sensing the stars, the details of the Mariana Trench, rainfall in Zimbabwe, salamander pregnancies, and another zillion stimulating things. Crammed together, We refer to them as Sensitivity. They are a Natural Bonanza.
Yes. Rhinos are gifted. And Grateful.
Far be it for any Rhino to begrudge another critter its livelihood, but Mosquitos pose a threat to RhinoSanity. We have a lot of surface and these flying Nightmares strike without warning, leaving Us all Itchy and Afflicted.
The fact that it is Natural, and We Rhinos are not alone in our Suffering probably means something.
But what that is, We cannot say. We get too overwrought to Philosophize.
What can the hungry Rhino say in the face of Nature’s provision?
Right. Thank you.
