TheShadowNose over at comics.com/over_the_hedge has taken umbridge with my sloppy semantics:
He who blogs about Quantum Mechanics shalt NOT condemn interpretive math. Now, you CAN ponder a point source as either the quantum unit of three dimensional space or a vector formula for existence IN space. Rather than be cerebral, let’s think more like the cerebellum might. Would a point source be more like a baseball, or a sphere on a tetrahedral axis? More importantly, can we define it without both points of view? In this case, two plus two equals 5 as you must reach closure on the beginning and the end of existence. THEN you can measure things with a cerebral coordinate system.
I have no idea what any of that means, but it sounds impressive. What I like is that TheShadowNose went to some trouble to write a presumably clever comment. He/She spent a bit of their of precious time on this earth to comment on our comic strip. That’s why we do this. Not for money, fame or meeting William Shatner (though that was pretty cool). We do it so that someone, anyone will notice and react. Laugh, cry, write an indicipherable comment… whatever.
And, THAT’S what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown.
