Well, it would seem that you are back
to directing that same insult.

As with others who have relied on the
same crutch, I will state once more that
I merely establish what is in the literature.

As for originality:

I have written formal axioms.

I have thought through the difference
between Cantor and Frege (by the way, a
Cantorian "theory of ones" is not a
"strokes-as-numerals" representation of

I have thought through Zermelo's discussion
of partition lattices in relation to the
axiom of choice and the distinguished elements
dictated by its use.

I have argued for topological and geometric
foundations which is precisely what Lawvere
suggests in his discussion of category-theoretic
foundations -- my representations, however, are
direct and not vague.

And the list goes on.

You choose to be ignorant of what is original
in my work.

"Society" rewards men like you, Herr Doktor.
It is a shame that you choose to not live up to
what is implied by such an address.
