Well, no I didn't. There was no mistake or spontaneity involved in my
reply at all. I use the word from the following definition- '6. The
central or integral part; the vital core.' I admit to teasing (you and
others) with it. At the moment, it is also the only definition adhering
to the word I can come to a grip with....

My skepticism requires contact. If that is objectivism, so be it. I
think, however, that my definition of contact is more far-ranging than
the usual objectivist's. But I don't travel in their circles, either.
