Ontological dilemmas and cappuccinos

  1. If you look at Renaissance paintings – like those of Raphael and Da Vinci, you'll notice that philosophers and prophets are often depicted with their index fingers pointing at the sky. I'm not sure what this signifies, really (possibly the acknowledgment of a higher-order or power), but I thought it would be nifty to pay homage to this tradition here.
