I think Scott would be happiest with stone tablets and his signature at the bottom :coffee:

Mind you ....very LARGE stone tablets and laser etched :roll:

2020's dose of Foundational Thinking incoming.

More examples of 'this is wrong because I say so, while this is right because I say so, and I'm a foundational thinker, ergo, what I say is inherently true and not in need of any material support'.

I see a convoluted metaphorical story about a building to demonstrate that a great system builder philosophy is better than a particular one. Then the metaphor is tortured and twisted to be about economic or social class or something thereabouts. Then there's a bit about Galileo and the Pope, and some - what looks like just mistaken- etymology that is doing too much lifting. And then it starts to sound like a Jordan Peterson piece about feminists being mean.

You guys are the bad guys in all of this, I think. Stop being the Pope, please.



only the pope is the pope, except when they isn't
