I agree SY.

But ....how to connect the two... to the final aspect of hearing it, and what all that means in the grand total sense with all the minutiae properly placed and thought out..... there's the rub.

The problem tends to come down to the point of one's expression on human limits of perception. A seeming projected idealization of one's current capacity for discernment, as defining limits for and of others.

Once tripped through the logical flow parameters required, we get to an aspect regarding issues that surround and involve self review. From which no-one, that I am aware of, is excepted.

Sorry, haven't done that since 1970. I found it unpleasant, much preferred wine.

the flippancy of humorous retort can indeed release tension or similar issues but it can also enable one to hide.

Well, I can't really answer gibberish.

BTW, I had lunch a couple times with your partner down here. Very nice fellow.

Wow! All this over NOT putting an UNNECESSARY LED as a pilot light.
For the record, I use LED's in the JC-1, JC-2, and JC-3, all 'A' rated products. I even use LED's as bias diodes in the output stage of the JC-2 preamp.
It might well be the mere installation of the LED is the true problem, in some circumstances, the skimpy unshielded wires, the necessary hole made in the front chassis and the extra diameter often needed by the plastic housing for the LED, could be problematic.
PMA should be jumping up and down over this, by now. He certainly has given me enough grief over the 'imperfect' but necessary holes in the back of the chassis, for inputs, outputs and power supply wires.

Your vocabulary is unfortunate. The problem is left brain-right brain communication. Left brain is analytical and very verbal - drills down like a microscope. Right brain is big picture and less verbal - displays like rich field telescope.

Things don't go as well as they might when the two sides don't communicate well. And that can be difficult as the side that is 'sending the message' does so by inhibiting the conscious activity of the other. The other side doesn't always allow itself to be inhibited.

This is not always easy to spot in self or others unless the situation is extreme.

See Iain McGilchrist.

One might say that the dogmatic issue is part of the human body's most basic design, part of the autonomous function of subconscious expression and I/o filtering.

Thus no physicist, with any sort of true in-depth self honesty, should ever find themselves incapable of bearing the full brunt of their own in-depth self-reflection.

Yet, that is the condition of ~99.999% of all humanity, deeply unaware and incapable of facing the depth of the self. To find the self-lie or missed point. Buried in the autonomous function, outside of logic and conscious rumination.

Science and physics can be as faulted as any religion or dogma that it proposes to sweep away.

This is due to the incapacity (which can be corrected) for self-reflection of the people that are within it.

This is a basic truism, borne into existence through any form of bare self honesty that encompasses any form of depth.

Have fun dealing with it.

The difference between his view and your view is, you have knowledge and experience in different fields.

I often use LEDs in power supplies as voltage references, and the gear sounds much more natural than majority of similar things available from stores and dealers.
