Sept 19th/ Red Letter Day
- Most of us have pride that we see common sense. If someone exposes a
riddle that he sees that goes against common sense, that should be
acceptable. Either he is dumb, or the rest of them are dumb. I take
the attitude here that I am not dumb, and will try to explain why
that is so. So be it. If I can learn something new, that was the goal
of the enquiry to begin with.
Richard Hull calls this a red letter day in his
study and commentary of Colorado Springs Notes. I just
think that it is a good day to send things out, to
make common sense of things, when none can normally be
I was supposed to write an essay about paradoxes,
using horse sences, or common sense. Easily done so
they say. But not easily resolved.
You can lead a Norris to water, but you cant make
him drink. You can't convince the Norris that things
are right, when he sees some glaring paradoxes.
Of course, said the Norris, I must explain the
greater picture here to otheres, so that they can
understand the same way that I do, what the problem
is, and the measures to find its correction.
Bowing down to simpletons and common sense is no
burden to me, but for others it may remain a great
challenge. If you have five fingers on your hand,
perhaps you can understand only five ideas, but this
is enough to make a further understanding. That is a
tool to be used, define the known and go into the
unknown from there. Recollections of the BRS/part 2 is
here. It only gives questions from answers. Due by
Sept 19th, from being asked to write an essay. It is a
good essay for simpletons.
