I asked 3 very simple questions which
directly address the relation between
reality and computer programmers.
(You brought computer programmers into the mix.)    (01)

Since you seem unable to answer those 3 questions,
I think you are the one with a problem.    (02)

Maybe you are having second thoughts about the
relation of your theory to reality?    (03)

I'll help you out with some follow-up questions.    (04)

How can those computer programmers map
"Clark Kent is a human." to reality?
How can those computer programmers map
"John F. Sowa is an owl."  to reality?    (05)
