yeah, everest like the mountain.. that's mary's uncle. boole like the mathemetician, that was her hubby. mary, well she's just a flower who wrote some unique texts regarding math and imagination. this is dope occult text most modern occultists are probably unaware of. learnoutloud.com has a chapter available which i derive great pleasure and insight from it's listening.
without further ado i present you chapter 18 of mary everest boole's "philosophy and fun of algebra.
The essential element of Algebra:—the habitual registration of the exact limits
of one’s knowledge, the incessant calling into consciousness of the fact of one’s
own ignorance, is the element which Boole’s would-be interpreters have left out
of his method. It is also the element which modern Theosophy omits in its
interpretation of ancient Oriental Mind Science.
Men who wish to exploit other men fear nothing in logic or science except
this element. They fear nothing in earth, heaven, or hell, so much as a public
accustomed to realise exactly how much has been proved, and where its own ignorance
begins. Exploiters fear this about equally, whether they call themselves
priests, schoolmasters, college dons, political leaders, or organisers of syndicates
As long as general readers can be kept from the habit of registering at every
step the fact of their own ignorance and the limits of their own knowledge, a
clever charlatan can deceive them about anything he pleases:—“from pitch-andtoss
to manslaughter”; from Zero to Infinity; from the contents of a meat tin
to the contents of an engineer’s report; from the interpretation of a bill before
Parliament to the interpretation of Isaiah.

ignorance, and you will have done much towards reducing all kinds of
parasitic creatures to the alternative of starvation, suicide, or earning their own
living by rendering some kind of real service to the organism which supports

Towards Virtue inferior things, being asunder, are deduced. Through reconciliation the inferior things, by a means of induction, are resolved unto virtuous aeffect.
The superior binds that which is inferior & converts it unto itself.
