Post The true meaning of "Aleph"

A spanish friend of mine gave me this link when I told him about Pass Labs and the Aleph amplifiers. In the link you will find the tale of Jorge Luis Borges (famous argentinian writer), "El Aleph", translated to english. (1945). It appears that "Aleph" contains a deeper sense than just good amplifiers.

Did you know about this tale Nelson? Why actually named these amps "Aleph"?

Aleph is also the first letter of the Hebrew Alphabet.

...and it is worth reading about Poincare (sorry about the orthographie, francophones), who used the Hebrew letter aleph to represent different sort sof infinities.

Yes, the Aleph particle detector is one big piece of hardware.

Mathematically, we can't forget Cantor's use of Aleph,

And of course the Aleph Biosoft in Gibson's novels.

nothing like thumbing a couple of derms of endorphin analog on
your wrist and sitting back to listen to some nice music
...even better when it's coming from an Aleph.

Cantor, not Poincare. I shouldn't try to do the history-trivia thing.
