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,
Number 17,000

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.

[davido]: If you ever doubt the progress made in CPU technology: I have a script that runs in 2m20s on a Core2-Duo with 8GB RAM and an SSD. On an i7-2700K, also with SSD, same script runs in 12.5s.
[davido]: That's a 2nd Gen i7, but it is OC'ed from 3.5GHz to 4.6. ...things break down for awhile following 2nd gen though; the 2nd gen i7 2700k beats my Haswell (4th gen) i7 laptop by about 30%
