remix from wikipedia:

Infinitesimals have been used to express the idea of objects so small that there is no way to see them or to measure them.

The problem with labels is that once they’re applied, it’s impossible to see what lies beneath. When the world changes, then, our labels cease to function and we’re blind to the opportunities that are presenting themselves.    – Icarus Deception

Seeing is forgetting the name of the thing one sees.  – Icarus Deception

Students easily relate to the intuitive notion of an infinitesimal difference 1-“0.999…”, where “0.999…” needs to be interpreted differently from its standard meaning as a real number.

The insight with exploiting infinitesimals was that objects could still retain certain specific properties, such as angle or slope, even though these objects were quantitatively small.

or a thumbprint..?

The new safe place requires us to look others in the eye and see them, truly see them.

prejudice quote

In common speech, an infinitesimal object is an object which is smaller than any feasible measurement, but not zero in size; or, so small that it cannot be distinguished from zero by any available means. In order to give it a meaning it usually has to be compared to another infinitesimal object in the same context (as in a derivative). Infinitely many infinitesimals are summed to produce an integral.

perhaps discriminating to infinity, just in time stories/min-courses to infinity, breathing to infinity, .. is the open door to equity. differentiation. be you.

perhaps the more we lean in – to each individual story/person/soul – as tiny as that seems – the more (ginormous) beauty we see/become. integration. be us.
