Good to see your signature again. The new "unadulterated" Pirsig
quote I will have to study before commenting, but it looks more
substantial than the other version. Your BTW sounded most
interesting. Yes, the MOQ certainly has qualities that show when
one applies it in the SOM swamp, I never stop marvelling that here
we may have THE solution, and yet the difficulty in making it bear
on the temporary riddles without having the proverbial metaphysical
discussion at the end of every sentence. Phew!

I hope your paper will be published at the homepage, or do
you plan a printed book? That is risky biz. of course but would have
been something. Speak to Glove, he had some interesting bids for
his book project. Thanks so far.
