An Observation & A Question
Today being Christmas Day, I've been away playing. However, I saw a couple of things today and I thought I'd share one of them.

My niece is 2 yrs 8 months, and this year is the first year she's really gotten into the gimme gimme thing with Christmas. She understands the whole giving and getting concept this time around. One of the other children at Christmas lunch had been given a packet of 18 bracelets. When M saw them, her face lit up. She went over to pick them up. K (her mother) said "No darling, those aren't yours, those are C's". M's face fell for a second or two, then brightened again as she looked at her mother and asked "But I can have them?".

*Our family are all Christians, and the following conversation presumes that you believe as we do, in Intelligent Design, with the God of the Bible as Creator... if this isn't your belief, just be aware that this is where the conversation started out....*

Over dinner & dessert, D (my brother) was telling us that K had asked him a question that had kept him thinking all week. So she took over the conversation and said "It's pretty simple, really. What did God create square? It can't be anything man-made, or subject to enviromental change, it has to be something that was created square". Dad came up with a block of chocolate, but unfortunately, that didn't pass the standards required. Chocolate, however, will be available in Heaven. D said "Dad", but I think that's one of those time and erosion things...
Can anyone else think of anything that qualifies?

sounds like a 'Platonic essence' or something like that. God created the idea of a square and all our 'squares' are approximations of an 'ideal square'.

hmmmmm.... *runs to look up "Platonic essence"* - prolly something to do with no kissing.

"Platonic essence" - the new philosophical shampoo. Your hair will be so soft if he touched it.
But he won't.

God created salt, and when you look at salt crystals under a microscope, they're square (cubic). Hope that helps.

LOL - thanks Aunt Nancy!! I'll let K know.. I'd never have thought of that. Which is why I put stuff like this out here. There are so many brilliant people with some incredibly arcane knowledge (and just general smarts), that I knew if there was an answer, someone here would know it.
