Verily, my personal experience reveals a path untold by the preceding factions, whatever the provenance of their "aisle side." I found something altogether different.
The aforementioned aisle separating the former from the latter is the farthest this discussion will go in the latter's revolted consideration. We individuals—the sincerely curious and genuinely truth-seeking—coupled with those aspiringly efficacious persons the lay, but intellectually honest "rank and file" should read and watch respectfully... is the whole of our consideration!
This discussion excludes the latter and is appalled by their hubristic and stubbornly maintained polar antithesis to sense and sensibility... those reflex skeptics: those who should be reviled, despised, and wholly loathed for the intellectual cowards that they are, out of hand! The latter—refusing to responsibly first investigate that which they propose to condemn—recuse themselves for a consideration of any stripe.
I'll leave it to the reader who's who.
The individual, one discovers, is key! The "idea" is the thing provided by the single individual. Creation is not a committee action; this does not require citation. It's but one, remember, who can keep a thousand employed, for good or ill. There's a partnership there, or should be.
