Over the last several years, your writing's become quite a bit more considered, insightful, and worth reading. I fear, though, that the information density has become, if anything, even less than it might have previously been. I really want to "hear" (i.e., read) what you have to say --- but just keeping up is a full-time job. (Fyi, this isn't any damning critique; I've had this criticism aimed at me before, too.)
So a plea: do you think you could find a way to say the very worthwhile things you have to say, perhaps more concisely? This is argument --- worthwhile argument --- not polemic and not poetry. Apply whatever compression algorithm you think appropriate, we'll manage...
"Strange loops through the meta level, I think, are not the same as circular logic."
But of course you would say that, Eli.
