May the gods have mercy on me, I think I know where he's going with
"pattern rings". The mention of object-oriented programming gave me
the clue.

1. You mortals think in terms of specific rings.
2. I, the great JSH, think in terms of a super ring, and state
theorems that are true (because I state them) for x, y, z, no matter
what kind of object x, y and z are.
3. We can then drop down into one of your mortal rings and all my
declared theorems will be true by inheritance, as "ring of complex
numbers" is a class derived from "JSH pattern ring".
