<< Rosine> Yes. How many angels can dance on the head of a pin? >>
<<EoganOg>Actually, I think one medieval theologan (I want to say Thomas
Aquinas, but something tells me that is not right) actually, mathematically,
came up with a numerical figure that was supposed to be theologically sound.
Anyone know
this number, or who this theologan/mathemetician was?>>

Nope, but didn't Anne McCaffrey come up with a procedure for mathematically
calculating the number (in The Ship Who Sang)?
