I totally agree with your following statement:

**I do believe that Dick has accomplished something. But, no one here is really qualified to determine what that is. It isn't a philosophical accomplishment, it is a mathematical accomplishment that has certain scientific curiosities that probably need to be entertained by a larger community. That can't happen as long as he hits you over the head with criticisms of science, unknown data of observations, etc. These terms do not belong in a peer review journal. I can't imagine a hard-nose scientist or the mathematician wasting their time. He can look to the philosophical community, but generally his assumptions and reasoning is so unacademic that he isn't likely to get much interest. **

Like Dr. Stafford I lack the scientific credentials to publish in scientific journals (except in a very limited area that no longer exists) even though my ideas may be good. Unfortunately you have to pay the dues of a lifetime to get credance in science. So we end up posting such ideas in forums like this one. I just like to think about metaphysical things, and it is hard to think without writing at the same time.
