Confession –

. . .I really do think you would enjoy Roy’s manuscript – – and – – I sincerely hope that you would not refrain from reading it because of my own failings and betrayal of trust . . .(probably you’re just too damn busy!) I completely respect that – but – include it anyway – – – just as a token of my sincere regret for my lack of courage and integrity . . . Most of all, I regret poisoning the well of our conversation. . .

Dear Paul VanderKlay –

. . .The single greatest insight in the entirety of the Western philosophical tradition is the basic phenomenological distinction between naïve experience and theoretical thought. In other words, our thoughts about reality are not necessarily the way reality is. While this may seem obvious, it is often overlooked by both the learned and unlearned alike; wrecking untold havoc on life and thought . . .
