The lecture

Posted on Fri Nov 20th, 2009 @ 1:25am by Chief Warrant Officer Akina Jrez

Serge has invited me to his next lecture. I’m honoured; I look forward to them but, at the same time, I dread them. Serge is – and I don’t use the word lightly – a genius but....otherworldly would be a nice way of describing him.

I know I won’t understand a thing he says. I grasp about thirty percent of the basics then, just when I think I’m getting a handle on things, he goes off on some wild tangent. I can’t imagine how his poor wife copes. Serge spends most of his life in the clouds. His is a world of numbers, both real and imaginary, and esoteric equations that, quite frankly, leave me baffled.

Sometimes I think it’s good that I’m here to keep him grounded. At least I can help put his ideas into practise. Then again, how much has his brilliance allowed my to bask in his glory?

As Jrez would say, it’s a symbiotic relationship.
