    Hello Matt,
    It's quite shocking to see how ridiculous you are becoming. Quite shocking.
    It saddens me to see the forum being silted up with your brand of detritus,
    but you are free to do it, and you do it very well.
    May i ask a question?
    How do you feel you have improved understanding of Quality?

    Also, re: metaphysics or first philosophy. For pity's sake, will you not
    understand enquiry into the groundstuff of reality is a most legitimate area
    for philosophers? I know the likes of Hume would have all books upon the
    subject burned on the fire, but we can't burn metaphysicians on the fire can
