Pacifique I really appreciate it, really I do, I was only having a dig. Why you should
concern yourself with this peasant farmer is really an honour to be sure, the story of
his life is hello and goodbye, transient as the snowfall upon the stream or the little
bird who enters the feasting hall, sings his song and flies into the morn. As da Vinci
stated, its a wretched pupil that does not surpass his master and i will try to learn
from it. It never occurred to me that something in chess could be termed 'artificial',
but i see now that such is the case, Lasker goes even further and terms it lies and
hypocrisy. As chess is concerned with truth, it only goes without saying that these
artificialities will not last very long, for truth has a potency all of its own and whence
laid bare by logic they shall be exposed to the elements and crumble.
I dont see how I can be helped, this really is the best i can do, yet even water , if it
drips on stone with constancy may make progress, so as the ancient sage stated, do
not despise the snake because he has no horns, who will say that one day, he shall
not become a dragon
