All of you are great. Seriously I loved the thread.

The reductionist in me however kept on seeing self-assembling watches.

Just my true cents.

Henry is a word virtuoso. He knows lots of words but where does his ability to turn them into thoughtful prolixity for us to enjoy come from? Considering the brain works like a typewriter, just where did such knowledge and raw creativity come from? It's not just his vocabulary and his ability to look up countless references, although that needs to be explained as well. It's his creativity! All this ability to make endless sentences out of words! Did he already know those sentences? He couldn't have come up with them. Where did they come from? (Insert some comment about materialists here.) It must be external paranormal sources!

(Relax. It's a joke!)

Prolixity. Yes. Prolixity!

I did not know that word. You have sent me to semantic heaven. Bless you. Finally I have a word to define Conference talks besides "word salad."

P.S. Your post is very clever--could tell it was a joke.

Ha, Ha. (Joke taken)

I assure you that there is nothing paranormal here. Now, if I come up with a "symphony of words" in the form of some novel scientific theory, my assessment might change. But, I am not holding my breath.

By the way, I will take your kind words as a compliment (rather than sarcasm), whether so intended or not. In any event, it seems that maybe I have moved up ever so slightly on your scale of credibility. After all, I will take "word virtuoso" over "blow hard" any day, whether sincere or not. :)

Best regards,
HB
