When you say you 'developed' idealism, you're using the lingo of academic conferences in an internet forum. It's pretentious.


I mean, (obviously enough I thought?) I developed my understanding of idealism. If you check post 216 and what I actually said was 'Another couple of decades of refinement of the primary concepts' Thats not pretentious, if it is, well boo hoo.
I dont mean to say I originated or perfected idealism (or mentalism), that would be pretentious as well as ridiculous, idealism has been around for thousands of years and I am not making claim to be the top idealist dog.
