David, are you serious? It's a classic case of Randian "social
metaphysician" who believes that what other people say is more valid that
one's own senses and mind. I know, I shouldn't have left you alone with
those guys... The fire must have been terrible!

When we met in Poland your "senses" seemed to be still "rock solid". What
happened after? What happens when "senses" are not "rock solid" anymore?
That must be humiliating...
