      I don't think you should keep seeing it that way. NOBODY else thinks
      Q underlies Thomas or vice versa. Or that Thomas has any literary
      relationship to John. And only a very few think the synoptics somehow
      literarily underly John. So you have kinda backed yourself in a
      corner where your ideas are verging on the wacko.
