No you haven't quoted my post in full. My point was simple, a 
rebuttal of your advocacy of the scientific/rational as the sole arbiter 
of understanding.

I believe I correctly attributed the following (excerpted here from a 
larger previous quote) to you and not Korzybski: "... but you need to 
provide quantitative and verified data to convince those of us who 
don't want to be led around by the stupid-ring in our noses." Correct 
me if I was wrong?
