In order for any two people to agree on definitions, they must first
agree that they agree an a large numbers of undefined things, like the
meanings of the words in which they will make their first definitions.

And that all agreed upon definitions presume prior, though often
unstated, agreement on the meanings of the words and grammar of some
common language.

And the meanings of the words and grammar of the language of WMytheology
is not agreed to by anyone except WM himself.

Thus no one is required to accept any of WM's definitions, nor his
interpretation or, more commonly, misinterpretations of anyone else's
meanings.

But it is sometimes amusing to watch WM's flounderings.
