Hi

I looked at the essay you said to read. Thanks but no light was shed to me from these words. I found them confusing and lost interest very quickly. It reads as a religious conspirosy theory.

Thank you for suggesting this text though.

I encountered Alain De Bottons “The consolations of Philosophy” where he describes “wisdom does not require a specialized vocabulary or syntax, nor does an audience benefit from being wearied”. Every difficult work presents us with a choice of whether to judge the author inept for not being clear, or ourselves stupid for not grasping what is going on”. I prefer the former, maybe you should read this book?
