THERE’S NO ROOM FOR ERROR. ALL CALCULATIONS

SHOULD FIT IN WITH THE DICTATES OF EQUATIONS

AND FORMULAE, NO MORE NO LESS. FOR EXAMPLE,

THE ANSWER TO ONE PLUS ONE IS ETERNALLY.

TWO, THAT’S TRUE. OR THE ANSWER TO THE QUESTION

OF WHAT IS THE SQUARE ROOT OF 64 IS ALWAYS EIGHT.

RIGHT? THESE ARE JUST SIMPLE THINGS, BUT HOW MUCH

MORE IF WE ARE GOING TO TALK ABOUT MORE COMPLEX MATTERS

SAY, THE DIMENSIONS OF A DAM, THE VOLUME OF A STORAGE TANK

OR THE AMOUNT OF FORCE NEEDED TO PROPEL A SPACESHIP TOWARD

THE OUTER DEPTHS OF THE UNIVERSE. YOUNG ONE, JUST

FOLLOW THE DICTA OF OUR FIELD AND EVERYTHING ELSE

WILL GO AHEAD AS PLANNED.

–R.J. Asuncion, DOGMA
