Hi Richard, All,
I can't leave this one alone either. How can you separate theory from
practice? The idea must come first before practice begins. I'll
concede that sometimes the results of a theory put to practice will
yield a surprise result, but then you will theorize new things to put
to practice. Where would we be without Tesla's theories that he put
to practice.
