First Understand The Problem

Alan,

If you understand the problem that Dick is trying to solve, then explain it to me. I am really not sure what problem Dick is trying to solve. He has brought up just about every philosophy of science issue that he sees as unsolved and tried to group all of them in this one central problem that somehow his paper solves. Each attempt I make to quantifying the problem leads nowhere.

I thought by giving this "6AM born yesterday" scenario that we could narrow down exactly what the 'problem' is, but as everyone can see, Dick resists being understood. It reminds me of that one movie where the interrogator keeps asking "is it true" and he never gets an answer even when being tortured (if I remember, in the movie he never does get the question). Although Dick hasn't begun any physical torture, he persists with the question "do you understand the problem?", which I take as equivalent to "is it true?".

I think I'm gonna let you take over my spot for awhile. Until Dick can quantify in terms of what series of thoughts that lead up to his 'problem', I think I'm chasing tails.

Warm regards, Harv
