  2. JT's delivered what I'd call a "topology of sustained oratorical engagement". Choosing TED to deliver his message, Julian invokes quines of computer science. The topology is used to deliver the topology, just as quines write & compile their own source code.

    Treasure rapped out each concept with balance, gradually revealing their roles in a holistic framework, one that left little room for misconception. The only change I'd make? A pinch of intellectual detail & spiritual robustness, sprinkled on like salt-n-pepper. The balance of that versus clarity/conciseness was off a smidge.

  3. Recently, dogmatism has especially been a plague in my life from others around me. I'd love to extricate myself from that sort of poppycock.

  4. I apologize but I don't like robotic voices and if a person speaks to me in his tone I will loose interest rather quickly. Several good points however.
