Quoting: "I have more confidence in my ideas than you can comprehend"-
that looks dangerous- what if someone else is equally confidant of their ideas that clash with yours?
If you're allowed to be confidant, so too are others.
" Enough confidence and understanding to know that the fact that I understand doesn't make one whit of difference. What I could never understand was why such an obvious thing was overlooked by all the "great minds". This forum has been great fun as they have made it clear (particularly Harv) why they cannot see what is right in front of their eyes (so to speak). "
But what about "None so blind as those who WILL NOT see"? Seek and you shall find.
If you read more of what philosophers have done, you would see more is known than you realise. James Burke's TV series "Reality" covered a significant aspect of your idea.
Others may hold that you do not see what is in front of your eyes! What about my explanation of complex numbers and quantum jumps via hold your finger in front of your eyes against your nose and close one eye then the other?
What about the obvious failure of "lost" humans to consider the relevance of failure to recall "where they've been" - their infancy?
Maybe you are not seeing what is glaringly obvious?
The ideas I have: understanding makes a very big difference.
"To what purpose would any PR be spent?" In your case: you might make half a million dollars (Nobel prize). You might save taxpayers in USA 1 billion dollars on misguided searchers for Higg's bosons or something. That's a lot of card-packs if you think card games are what is worthwhile!
At least we agree that playing games is more to the point of life.
