Hi Luis,

***I really like how you turned this self-effacing into an insult ("there are times when you are just half fast.")***

I hope I can take you literally, and that you really didn't take offense at my "insult". If you did, I apologize. After setting yourself up so perfectly, I just couldn't resist the temptation. After all, I don't get many chances to use that one. BTW, it works with "vast" just as well as with "fast".

***Math or no, I'm pretty good at seizing the gist of these things. In fact, for these reasons I was enormously interested in Dick's thesis***

So, what did you think of my recent attempts at summarizing Dick's discovery? You can find them at

I think you did a good job of illustrating the "lottery" process we each go through in arriving at our beliefs. (I don't mean that our beliefs are a result of a lottery process, but that we come up with out beliefs about the same way we come up with our lottery bets.)

Warm regards,
