This is a beautiful node. Thank you! I have one minor comment (emphasis mine):
The mistake that people often make is they try to understand it. (Some people make the same mistake with life, or the state of the world, or The Prisoner.)
Even if you never understand The Prisoner, like this node, it has lessons worth contemplating.
Be seeing you,
Interesting timing, too. I have The Prisoner on tape (I'm so old school) and Schwern and I have been watching and arguing about it the past few days.
