—“I’ve not spent much of my life in “nerdland” so it’s interesting to observe the language and the operational detail/ complexity in your replies to me. It’s both fascinating and bewildering at the same time. … I am trying to reserve judgment on this form of communication as Curt obviously thinks it’s important for matters of P law and warrantied speech moving forward. It’s not that it’s not decipherable, I simply automatically find myself translating it into plain speech that is much more compact and universally understandable.”—by Stephen Wells
That’s a good thing. 😉
a) you can tell others in plain language, but;
b) if someone comes along with a sophism or deceit you know that there is more behind it than simple language.
Think of it this way:
P is math.
Carpenters work by rules of thumb.
We falsify false rules of thumb with math.
My job and P’s job is to prevent false rules of thumb.
Your job is to spread true rules of thumb.
Together we win.
