Anonymous Harv wrote to Doctor Dick with great fluid con-artistry:
"This is philosophy, and philosophy generally does not make require mathematics in the way that science requires it. Part of the reason, I think, is that science has the "shutup and calculate!" mindset, whereas this is not a philosophical justification or explanation of what is actually happening."

What Harv's philosphy says is,"Don't count. Proportional perspectives are not enough. Take my word for it. I make the rules."
Dr. Dick's math says,"Don't count. Proportional perspectives are not enough. Take my word for it. You must instead do calculus."

Both are wrong. Counting and proportion are necessary and nearly sufficient to discover the causes of a great number of every day phenomena.
