But Kim, what is the title and author of the books you're reading on him?

| currently reading some old dude named Rene Descartes from the 1600's.
| "I think therefore I Loop!"
| "I loop therefore I covet gear!"
| "I covet gear therefore I think!"
| I highly recommend Rene for any looper, as he has his own rather profound
| approach to looping. Descartes proved himself to be a very bright 
| guy early
| on, even inventing some fundamental mathematical concepts we all were
| tortured with as youngsters. And then, convinced of his own mediocrity, 
| devoted 9 years of his life to eliminating all of his opinions. Descartes
| developed an exemplary approach to thought, whereby he would: never 
| anything to be true which he did not absolutely know to be true; divide
| difficult problems into as many simple parts as possible, so that they 
| more easily be solved; conduct his thinking in order from the simplest 
| easiest to prove through to the more complex; and last, to make 
| his studies
| so complete and general as to not omit anything.
| Then, after this remarkable effort, Rene employs an amazing bit 
| of circular
| logic to prove the existence of God in just three rather convoluted
| sentences. Impressive! I heartily encourage you all to create 
| music in that
| fashion. In fact, reminds me of many posts here on Looper's Delight.
| Sadly, although Rene is considered the Father of Modern Philosophy, he 
| not live long enough to invent his own looper or compose any influential
| loop music, as he certainly would have. The queen of Sweden hired 
| him to be
| her tutor, and demanded that he begin instruction at 5am in cold 
| Sweden. He
| died within months. I'm sure the same would happen to me....
