the only part i feel remotely qualified to respond to,is with respect to the following portion of your post:
"Yannri wrote:
"The math was correct, but his interpretation was not."

Interpretation sounds like the domain of the
religious authorities."

well this is possible. there is the other possibility in that Yaniru may be alluding to Dr. Dick's understanding of the physical meaning that his math points to or that the starting assumptions on a physical level lack rigor even though the resulting mathematics is correct. i'm sure you would agree that it is not always easy to understand the physical implicatons of an equation or set of equations.
philosophical implications on the other hand seem more ammenable to intuition and yet are readily subject to the quagmire of mankinds predjudices.
