I Don't Think Dick Is Obcessed With His Intelligence

Hi Aurino,

I know you didn't mean anything by it, but I don't think Dick is an egomaniac in any form. He simply has a strong attachment to his endearing work, and that might dull his wit in certain areas, but I don't that should be misconstrued.

What Luis said about Dick is also unfounded. Dick is a very intelligent person. I read one of Chris Langan's paper, and I read Dick's paper, and I can tell ya, Dick's paper is a much harder read, plus I like the fact that Dick tries to at least ground his knowledge into something. If I had any one major criticism with Langan, is that he operated on a number of assumptions that were not universal givens. Although, I liked the work of Langan (the first time I read it), and was quite surprised that we came to similar conclusions about the holistic world which I believe we live in.

In any case, I know you like Dick, so no criticism there. I just thought I'd pipe in where I'm not always appreciated.

Warm regards, Harv
