Cut the semantics crap. You know what I mean. You didn't experience bearded men of the past tilling land. You may have read about it, maybe you were taught it. Maybe it's something you suspected and found evidence to support. But you didn't experience it.

Did I ever mention enlightenment as one single moment?
An eternal one?
All of time in one piece?
I don't belabour the point, because who could imagine it?

I have experienced bearded men tilling the land, in Morocco, in the manner they have looked, dressed, been, and done it, since the dawn of history. It's a Biblical scene that hasn't changed.

Anyway, I never claimed I was there for it. It was an illustration. A metaphor. Chosen for its applicability. But you illustrate how people become trapped in the details, finding fault with them, when the details are of no importance whatsoever.
I understand you require them to run your simulation.
I don't need to.
The data is not the message.
The message uses the data as a carrier wave.
If your receiver is out of tune, all you hear is static.

Before books people used their minds.  When people rely exclusively on books their minds become feeble.  A feeble mind has no imagination, intuition, or flexibility.  They are slaves.
