Well, I am sorry it works that way for you, but
apparently it has not stopped you from doing great
Nevertheless, for me it is the exact opposite, once I
understand something in science or nature, it becomes
many times more intriging. I know my appreciation of
TC's and TC theory increased by about 10^10 when I
read Richie Burnett's site for the first time, 4 or 5
