Dr. Thornton,
The problem was not that I am lazy. The problem is that your statement did not say much without further elaboration. It is just a nice start so far. In math and law, folks take time to define their terms precisely. If you want to communicate, sometimes you will have these slightly unexpected requests, such as, "could you please restate that," or "what do you mean by the word --- ?" When I asked nicely for further elaboration, you accused me of being lazy. This implies that you WILL NOT elaborate on the statement in question. Are you really trying to say that?
Have you read my previous posts on the topic of
precisely defining terms? Among those who have MOST strongly advanced the importance of precise language are:
1) Antoine: Lavoisier, discoverer of oxygen,
also considered the Founder of Modern Chemistry
2) Albert Einstein, author of the Theory of Relativity ...

I see real intelligence in what you said the first time...but how deep is it?

Don't tell me what kind of day to have! :)
