That Pulp-o-mizer was _exactly_ what I was hoping to find. You know when you get an idea and think, “SOMEBODY must’ve thought of it too” and then they did – and made the thing and it’s free and easy to use? Yeah, that.

Basically. They took a bunch of texts and edited them together into a large volume. Going by the reviews I saw of it the editing was very well done so I’m hopeful. I suspect this introduction was probably about PhD level in quality.

 

I’m disappointed. For a compendium on Time, it doesn’t say when the author’s wrote these works. I’ll have to go to the back to find out. I need to know when these were written in order to put them into an historical context. Disappointing, Oxford. Disappointing.

I’m skimming / speed reading / scrolling through and only stopping at what’s interesting. I hate most of it. I liked one chapter so far – one by the 1947 guy that started this mess. This chapter I might like. Hopeful.

 Indeed. I’m liking the initial guy from 1947 – only one I like so far really. Hans Reichenbach. Never heard of him before. Looking him up he was extraordinarily influential – and very much a physics kind of guy which is why his way of explaining rang for me a lot more than the English majors did.

I mean, just look at at some of his works.
I’d totally eat this stuff up – and probably will at some point.
