      This is the clue and I think it fits but will require a degree of
      explanation. My theory is that "Fuzzy Furry Freak Brothers" may or may not
      refer to specific people but it absolutely refers to "Fuzzy Set
      Theory" which is commonly called "Fuzzy Logic." Despite the comical name it
      is a very disciplined, very cutting edge branch of mathematics and believe
      me, it gets used on Wall Street 24/7. Some are better at it than others and
      I knew someone long ago that was fascinated by what was then an emerging
      discipline. This person later became connected with others who were said to
      be very bright and focused and you can guess the rest. (You may quote this
      in its entirety or edit as you see fit as I am sending it anonymously and
      the person in question forgot me as soon as we left school in XXXXXXXX--I
      wasn't considered smart enough to be of interest. That may be crueler than
      the reality of the situation and the arrogance was probably unconscious. I
      never thought the
      person to be vicious but groups often take directions more extreme than the
      individual members. Here is the very strangest part: the person had a
      strong charm that I think arose from complete sincerity. I have learned over
      the years that is exactly the kind of individual you never want to

      For your readers, Fuzzy Logic could be used to sort out much of
      what appears to be truly chaotic. It is too complicated to set forth here
      but the recurrent references to physical constants would be one possible way
      to define the parameters for a given analysis or set of analyses. The one
      of them that I vaguely knew was even then very knowledgeable in regard to
      finance but seemed to be indifferent to owning things or possessions in
      general. Years later I learned in
      graduate school that an attitude of that sort is the basis of The Protestant
      Ethic, about which much is said but generally without knowledge. The
      remarkable collection of articles that you have assembled looks to me like a
      direct application of The Protestant Ethic. Considering our context (USA,
      2001, the country secular in all respects) those articles can mean nothing
      except revolutionary commitment. Be a little careful.
