    Re: Navigating Around Hills and Dips in the Ocean

    Mr. Hoyte,
    I am  very sorry, but you are quite astray. Your Galilei promoted the 
    mathematical thinking against the very witty Aristotelian assertions (I 
    admire them, as I read them - but only as historical facts). You attack the 
    mathematical way of thinking by promoting qualitative, "Aristotelian" 
    concepts. If you said "Galilei's judges were right as a matter of fact, 
    Galilei deserved it", as some thread on "Hastro" Group now maintains it, you 
    would be more consistent.
    But I am very sorry once more - I am afraid that your arguing has the only 
    ground: you had remembered something wrongly from the past (IBM talks in 
    Italy) and now you defend the lost trench stubbornly.
    Jan Kalivoda
