    It's in the process of development and I'm looking for counter arguements.
    There aren't many people that have enough familiarity with the subject to
    come up with a good arguement nor many places where they hang out. This
    site has been one of the most productive so far, but most of the arguements
    I get aren't serious. Many are just put downs -- which I don't mind because
    I don't have any big reputation to defend. What I do here is just a way of
    testing my theory against what may be better ideas. I hope.
