I agree that I gave that impression, and I recognize it as an unprofitable
approach. I hope that it will not color all future interactions. My hope
was, and is, to receive true criticism of my work, an online peer review, if
Here's the deal: I am willing to utterly abandon any of my propositions that
can be objectively demonstrated to be false or intellectually untenable. I
crave intelligent criticism, and I give my word that I will publish a
prominant retraction *on my site* of anything that can be objectively
demonstrated to to be in error. I don't have all the answers, no matter how
much I may seem to act like I do.
Of course, as the champion of the Wheel of God, it must be understood that
in my heart and soul, it is a fait accompli. The process by which I came to
this knowledge left no possible alternative. I discovered the Wheel in 1995,
but did not recognize the symmetric structure of the seven canonical
divisions until 2000. Imagine the kind of impact that had on my mind. Here
was a structure I studied for five years, and then all in one day this
incredibly beautiful symmetry just appeared before my eyes! It was one of my
greatest "Omega minus" epiphanies.
Please understand I am not seeking to re-engage in debate. But I am open to
further mutually respectful exchange of ideas.
