More on Poincare and black coffee:
According to Poincare, the creative process is set in motion during a period of concentrated, conscious work. Poincari also describes an instance in which, unable to sleep because of too much black coffee, he felt his mind crowded with ideas that collided until they locked into a stable combination; by the next morning, he had the solution to a problem that had plagued him for weeks (thus anticipating, and perhaps motivating, the late Paul Erdos's definition of a mathematician as a machine for turning coffee into theorems).
Subject: Accepting Myeloma Nancy Bengston wrote: >I don't consider MM the "beast" It is a condition that I happen to have. I agree. I consider myeloma simply as a particular glitch in body chemistry that I just happen to have. I have no negative feelings about it. It's just something that's happened. As one gets older, these things can be expected. So my approach is to accept my glitch and keep on trucking. Eventually I'll have to check out, but this would be true whether I had myeloma or not.
