    But, he _can_ explain it to me. And make it useful. Meaning nothing is
    temporary if the mechanism is true and valid. This is science. What is
    useful is not culturally constrained.

    So, yes, I've walked the earth, from pole to pole, and all the other
    earths in all the other walks there could ever be, and all the sticks
    cast likewise shadows.
