Every language is also a special way of looking at the world and interpreting experience. Concealed in the structure of language are a whole set of unconscious assumptions about the world and the life in it.

Well, since the last post I've been honorably discharged from the US Navy after four years of service, visited El Salvador to see family, and am now getting my whole life organized here in San Diego while starting a food service business. A lot has transpired since the last post. Now it is time to come back to Secolinsky.

In the upcoming post after this "Update" we will recur to produce the number of triangles in a given iteration of the Sierpinski triangle. That is our goal. To help accomplish our goal, we direct the reader to The Little Schemer by Daniel P. Friedman and Matthias Felleisen. Contained in the book is a dialogue between reader and author that elucidates the tool of recursion found in mathematics and computation. The first eight chapters ingrain recursion in the brain and the last two are a challenge to grasp. Jan Stolarek gives reference to Peteris Krumens in the The Little Schemer Book Review post to help the ambitious reader with the last two chapters nine and ten.

Get the book The Little Schemer - 4th Edition, read it, and then we will be ready for the next post to recur.
