“I am going to try to add to this conversation Electrons are said to be clean and easy to understand particles. Quarks aren't. Photons are particles that emit and I think asorb light. As well their are property words that qualify. like a word that qualifies quarks according to speed I think would be tachyon. But this is where confusion lies they probably have mass quark distribution taken at a talking angle. Like miking a bass drum based on where most of the sound is coming from and ducktape to stop those other shells !(that other quark). (muffled quarks) See where this goes this is why the quark material is much harder to follow then the electronic visions. Maybe I am wrong but feel free to criticize it.”

“Photons are the corpuscular entities of units of electro-magnetism. They don't "that emit and I think absorb light". They ARE light (in the broadest sense)!”

“Today vision is accessible for everybody. You don't have to be a specialist to enjoy the world of the inventor or the artist or the engineer or scientist. I subscribe to Questia because my small town has a terrible library so I can access books from every University from every state. Lots of states have very interesting regional inventions but no one knows anything about anything in their own states because they don't read!!! President Kennedy did a good job trying to move the nation in a direction to manifest the "in the air", on the earth and in the sea discussions that had lurked as kind of a hindsight with gearing up tennacles for imagination. I work with half thoughts for a while before they shape or join one. Sorry I am so cumbersome I think vision is cumbersome for a while but I don't think that is bad. It is good that the nation is remembering one of the best presidents.”

“This type of thing has always been going on. What matters is are they writing up the problem sets to interest for a special advantage of some sort. in math many words force an expression change for example express a number as even x/2 vs if even one of these members is shorter than disqualify the whole team. Even takes on a completely different everything Where (What site, stem cell, erogenous zone spawn site , How (indexing system), What(comparison and signals that must exist for a working concept and Who(history from other times and what they were good for what extensions these new changes allow.) Rachel Carson uses a pretty technical vocabulary so if these books are doing that it doesn't matter. Curiosity sorts itself I don't worry about not understanding things the moment I expose myself to new vocabulary. As long as conversation is extended I am ok eventually the dues are paid back to me and I have extra-ordinary grace that is differential depending on the context.”

“The reason that religious people deserve our "fed up with you" behavior is that religion has lost "actualization" the apologetic conversations. So for example I am designing a game I have a character as a described role but with a lack of certain ethics but he brings a certain prequisite by agreed standards a formal equation/set is rules that force several bristle dynamics that tell the tale by the way the clock with the tail in the background swings but not back with the same momentum so that the start and rise times change from frame to frame and turn to turn. See that is an evolutionary conversation. These topics could easily fall under religious studies but the pastor priest rabbi and imam crowd is so busy trying to speak for the roles that other careers do and dismantling the grandfathers of these careers. Like pastors who dismiss Piaget. "NO I don't need to be thinking about "eternal life" I need to wonder why ( "A CERTAIN CONCRETE OPERATIONS STAGE keeping a decade of giving life NEVER OCCURRED) and doing things to bring the highlights for that into my mind so that I can have a more enriching relationship to contributing a more worthwhile artistic with differentiated grace depending on the context. See none of this is anti religious but I have been kicked out of bible studies for stating such things. "That's not what we say. !!! Don't come back!!!”

“I think she means concise writing is hard. There is a difference between routine unimaginative story telling constructs and detailed writing like technical science fiction. Poetry should be cumbersome. I don't like religion; I am capable of tearing it apart happily. writing is a sorting of other sorts to process under and within other processes sometimes as a chain or given a part up to each. See how confusing this gets. The problem is this plural use people( we are not identical twins.) but who meet as line managers at a table and handshake with other people (an assembly line) They are different conversations as written.”

“I think everyone here can read methodman's statement here to prove Maya Angelou's point. His is NOT an "easy read", therefore, very little effort was put into it.

Now, methodman MIGHT be a good writer, he may even be a Great writer, but you wouldn't know it from his piece.

It's one thing to try to show off how you can perform nimble gymnastics with words, it's another to write those words in a way that achieves the goal you want to reach.

In this case, the goal was supposed to be an explanation of what Angelou was trying to say, and to show that "concise writing is hard." Did he do that? For me he only proved that concise writing is hard for HIM--and that Maya Angelou was Right.”

“I think she meant her words exactly as she said them. Easy reading is hard to write. Look at you post, take it apart and you will see it is an example of what she meant. Your construct is not a fine example of easy reading, quite the opposite in fact. Religion-- what's the point of that inclusion. Tearing it apart. Any construct can be torn apart. Taking someones words and attributing a diametrically different take as a given is low brow.

As far as the following goes --- your words at the end:

"The problem is this plural use people( we are not identical twins.) but who meet as line managers at a table and handshake with other people (an assembly line) They are different conversations as written."

What???”

“I would read a series of books called Right use of Will by CeAnne De Rohan (Starting with the 2nd book) "Original Cause then I would also add The Syntopicon series in Great Books of the western world. Copy the topics down onto separate lines cut them up and stuff them in a bag. Then each week pull a different topic up and find a sentence you can relate to. Also I would study the origination of the various Creation relatives so for example Chaos, (Gaia Earth),( Abyss underworld) (Eros Cupid) say as a set of examples for the first creation.

Then (Aphrodite Nix night) (Erobus, Apostos Darkness) a different concept than night! (Tarfus Abyss) (Love Expression to form desire) and plug that in to the second creation.
"Earth Spell in that series is good. But you need to increase your vocabulary. Seminary isn't doing that that is a large reason many of us hate organized religion are have backed away from it. Also write these up in an Arostolian or Barbara, or Clarent, or Dorii, or Ferro form syllogisms.
See this is pure Theology. You would get booted out of churches now. They are spots where the Blind Remain blind and the lost remain lost.”

“The other problem is that not enough politicians and reporters are familiar with writing in a Barbara or a Celarent or a Darii or a Ferro expression and likelihood set so how can you have any understanding with the formal defect of non syllogistic writing where you make stuff up based on whims.

“The media just makes nonsense up and then gets surprised that helpful people go out to speak for them. and misconstrue with intent everything they say. Healthcare plans are being remade so it is normal that plan coverage would change usually for the better. I am willing to give healthcare companies the benefit of the doubt. Anything the GOP says is designed to misconstrue so I re-invent what their up to for them. The actual conversations use a larger vocabulary than they are willing to appreciate so is it any wonder they can't honestly contribute factors. I just spoke over their heads and I'm not even specific yet!!!”

“I strongly disagree with you. Most college work is not written in an inverted pyramid style!!! Most technological programming doesn't read the way prose is written. It is closer to analogy poetry which if it was put in front of you you would gape. I am struggling to learn how to problem solve with variety and my write ups that are close to correctness. I can get to the right hubs related but I am not practiced enough to recognize the differences look nothng like the way people normally write. There is a disconnect between the reporter reports and the creation producing. Good professors are teaching creation producing. Ask them for their syllabus and try to find computer programs written out but take the syllabus materials and use those as guides for writing your assignments. My thoughts are extremely different than most of my peers.”

“I am a tar pit republican (I like dinosaurs) Americans don't want their safety nets. Nor do they want to see doctors. Most Americans agree with our social disfranchisement of the poor and middle class and know that we will intensify in our welfare for the rich and their jockey for supremacy. Cultural distribution is bad for the country feckless disfranchising of the poor and middle class magnetizes our donors and we are the party of insurgent purity.
Remember the tar pit republican party and vote so you can be stuck like we are with the heart of a menace. Remember us we tell of our privilege it is your drive to accept it. We have our drives you don't need yours if your opinion disagrees with us.”
