Well, I suppose the quick and unsatisfying answer is that
any given subject has to be "set and dried and received"
before colleges start teaching it.
E.G., freshman don't learn what the greatest thinker on
Earth discovered in his office just last week....
Sometimes not even the greatest thinker's results of
30 years ago are not set and dried enough!
MOQ is still quite a fringe field, I would bet, so therefore
only books like Lila itself and ZAMM might appear in the near
future.... No textbooks...
Having said that, I think the current **world intellectual
climate** is 180 degrees apart from moq, and with THAT, it
may be that acceptance as a legitimate field is just not
conceivable at this point in time, at all.
A kind of intellectual revolution would have to occur, first...
