I AM GOING TO ANSWER YOUR ACCUSATION AND QUESTION, SO PLEASE READ CAREFULLY, BECAUSE THIS IS IMPORTANT FOR UNDERSTANDING WHAT'S GOING ON:
This was neither ignorant by me, nor low. I did pose to you the question if Hermanns' book was fiction; you neither denied it, nor agreed with it. In other words, you gave me NO DIRECTION as to its nature. I had the liberty, therefore, given by you, to understand it was fiction.
Here's the documentation from our past converstation to prove it (in green):
Is the origin (as quoted, perhaps in German original) from:
XXY: - Albert Einstein's mouth personally or else
ZZB: - the mouth of Hermanns' fictionalized figure of Albert Einstein
Now, Nick_A: in this following quote by you, you spake as if you'd already proven that Hermanns' book is not fiction. But there is not one iota of utterance that says that Hermanns' book is fiction or not. In other words, the entire text is idle talk, it is wasted verbal garbiage.
This quote by you absolutely deals not with the question whether Hermanns' book was fiction or a documentary. You WASTED my time and yours by quoting an absolutely irrelevant text which is irrelevant IN THE SENSE of judging whether Hermanns' book was fiction or not.Nick_A wrote: ↑Fri Oct 12, 2018 11:01 pmI don’t know if you are just being low or just ignorant but either way calling Hermanns' book fiction is just nasty considering what he and Einstein witnessed. Here is a little on Hermann’s. I’ll post the conclusion
In 1983 William Hermann's book Einstein and the Poet - In Search of the Cosmic Man was published by Branden Press. That same year the Einstein-Hermanns Foundation was incorporated by William Hermanns, Kenneth Norton and Ulf Sjödin to foster reliance on intuition for intercultural exchange and understanding. Through grassroots efforts the World Youth Friendship Parliament was inaugurated on July 1, 1988 at the seaside Villa Muramaris on the Swedish island Gotland in the Baltic Sea. In September 1989 the Mayor of Mönchengladbach honored him for his life’s dedication to reconciliation between Jews and Christians at a city-sponsored reunion of its citizens who fled the Nazis, and on the following day the Mayor of Verdun awarded him the Verdun Medal of Honor for his dedication to the reconciliation between the French and Germans.
This is just brief glimpse of his life, as he met many notable people, journeyed through a variety of religious traditions as a mystic and had the expansive poetical sensibilities that often quoted Heine who wrote of poets: Heaven high jubilating, to death sorrowing.
William Hermanns transitioned 7 months later on April 6, 1990 in San Jose, California.
Again: Dear Nick_A, you are skating and slithering like a slippery eel. You avoid topics, you don't respond to direct questions, you ignore pertinent facts shown to you when it is in your interest to pretend that these questions are not asked, and facts are not shown to you.
YOU DEMONSTRATED ONE MORE TIME YOUR INTELLECTUAL ABILITIES SUPPRESSED BY YOUR EMOTIONAL STATE WHICH CAN'T BEAR BEING PROVEN YOURSELF AND YOUR OPINIONS WRONG.
The entire forum population -- those who care to read your texts -- knows this about you. Along with some other catastrophic philosophical faults, which others have shown to you and to the rest of the forum.
HOW DO YOU EXPECT TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY WHEN YOUR MENTAL CAPACITY IS SERIOUSLY DISABLED BY YOUR EGO WHICH CAN'T BEAR BEING PROVEN WRONG.
