This Is Not the Title of a Blogpost


Just a little self-referential humor today (not the same as self-deferential humor!), as I'm reading Douglas Hofstadter's latest book ("Surfaces and Essences"), which gets me thinking about such things again (or perhaps, thinking about thinking about such things...).

By the way, I've read elsewhere that "In order to understand recursion, one must first understand recursion." Seems about right.

And so it goes....
