Dear readers,

Feedback: I’m eager to receive feedback of all sorts, including general comments, suggested edits, theoretical and historical corrections or additions. I’d much rather make corrections before the paper is cast in stone, that is, published in a journal.
Feedback may be sent to Philip Randolph Patten at

Please feel free to send the article link to persons in the scientific or media community.
