note 1. Topology & the Ontology of Finance

puzzles-7-bridges-map-eulerThe epistemologists of finance (from Marxist economists to quants) are geometers, in that the latter set out to measure quantities (e.g. areas, volumes, values of angles, lengths of sides). However, its not so much that none of these things matter to the topologist as that, first, such quantities prove ordinary whereas topology concerns itself with the singular, and second, in the final analysis there never is any final analysis but only a perpetual becoming of different quantities with their singularities (viz. topological invariants) and affects (viz. traits of expression).The ontologist of finance is for this reason a topologist.
