# Re: Note to Russell Standish

```Bruno, I can't help it: I liked Richard's interjection. Arithmetics (even
in your fundamental vision - I suppose) needs 'human logic' to propagate
etc., no matter how the elements may be thought to pre-date humans. Does a
stone, or the 'root' of a plant, a microbe, or a cloud follow (evolve?
apply?) your math- equations? I mean: not in their 'existence', but AS MATH
(observing numbers, i.e. arithmetix)?
Did you mean that (by UD) did humans got generated into logically thinking
creatures? Where in Nature would you detect (whole-sale) arithmetics?
(Meaning: beyond the 1, a pair, ~many etc. generalities? Prime numbers??)
That would make us UNIQUE - not just a level in Nature. (Children of God -
the Creator?)
