You misunderstand. The writers are rabidly against belief/faith, do not
expect everyone to agree (they like good criticism and improvements when
someone takes the time to read their work,) and want people to think for

There are only two, separate, ways of thinking about reality:
mathematical, superstitional. Those who disagree with Pythagoras,
Socrates & Plato's ideas that 'all is number,' 'number rules the
universe,' etc, are the superstitious. Some of the books in the series
actually have new mathematical ideas (#8 was one of the most recent) or
new rationalist idealist mathematical philosophy (#2 has the
foundational ideas.)

Please reply in the future to the post on book #9, or go back to the
post on #8 if you want to reply to that. My post above accidentally had
the old subject line.
