"That image cannot possibly be characterized as well thought out. Clearly, thousands upon thousands of insupportable presumptions have already taken place. "

That is a presumption Dick. On the contrary, I hold that it is not only well thought out; at conception (or should I say 'transaction'- because the future and past collide (John Cramer's theory-like) it may be perfectly well 'thought out'- fully differentiated.

Popper holds that humans make guesses based on regularities experienced in the world. And form strategies based on hypotheses- these may involve jumping to conclusions, and mistaken presumptions.

But he is describing humans in what one may call 'the wrong state'. Humans in the 'right state' would know reality very acurately.
