While I'm pondering the rest, would you
reiterate for me your objection to the
Pyrrhonism (link/para. below) it more problem from being

or is it because undesireable as an ideal to try?

Thank you again!

"...the definition of this term is generally given as 'development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs'.
(In the cited article) The possible mutual inconsistency of the two parts of this definition was discussed, but the absence of a useful time frame for 'future generations' was not."
