Re: and then i thought on it some more

Oh, I see. Okay. The meaningless nonsense I'm okay with. It's when the meaningless nonsense is "clever" or somesuch that I start wanting to knock people's hats off.

Re: and then i thought on it some more

I don't know what you mean by "meaningless nonsense" (and I will pause to wonder if this sentence is a logical impossibility).

I also have doubts as to the feasibility of full understanding. Of anything. But since everyone reads the text of the universe from a different perspective, I would say that if you interviewed everyone on the planet about everything, you could have a full understanding of everything. It might take a while though. I think Wikipedia is a more efficient means of doing the same thing even though it does select out people without computers.

I don't think so. At best you'd have a full understanding of how people perceive things. Missing would be (a full understanding of) what they're actually perceiving, and why they perceive it the way they do.

However in most cases it's probably possible to get a "good enough" understanding and I think Wikipedia might be great for that.
