Sorry for having sent off an empty message, my fingers
were too quick. Ideas can be developed in discussions,
and testing a new idea or hypothesis or theory in a sci.group
is about the hardest test. How many times did I tell the story
of my astrologer? Seems you want to read it again and again.
Well then, here goes.
In the late 1990s I went to my astrologer and asked her
whether anybody will ever be interested in my work?
She lit a candle, drew the curtains, had a long look
into her Fine Magic Crystal Ball (tradem.reg.), sighed,
and said I am a hopeless case. Nobody will be interested
in my work. Not until, perhaps, 2011 or '12 when a young
couple will stumble over it. I should write for them, not
bothering about what other people think or say ... I follow
her advice. Meanwhile the year 2012 is almost over.
Can it be that she was wrong? Note well, she said
'perhaps' in 2011 or '12. And then, astrologers are always
right, also and especially when they are wrong. The aim
of my astrologer was to encourage me, and that she
achieved. I gained confidence and my work gathered
momentum, carrying me on on its own.
