   It is not a matter of our not communiating, actually, or my not  
groking what you are saying. It is a matter of time frames. You  
are taking far future and I am not. You see, I am writing  
a disseration and I have a specific time frame for which my theory has  
to hold. As you know, dissertations can't be everywhere at once and  
require a specific focus. Gotta stay focused on precisely what I am  
working on.

   Bty, I read Drexler years ago, and he still continues to be  
an artistic inspiration for me.
