Yes!

I am here!

Be careful. I have nine cats---and they might like to eat a smart parrot.

I consider myself warned.

9 cats?

That's a lot of cats.

You are most definitely not here. I am here and I assure you there are no parrots here. Not smart ones or any other sort.

Who invited the transcendentalist? Wasn't one Buddhist enough?

C'mon Knuck,

The world desperately needs more metaphysicians. Posing such a question and then almost instantaneously resolving it is more than our resident Cherokee/Choctaw/Buddhist/Stoic has attempted to date. There is a certain elegance in stating a proposition and providing the answer without reort to all that "show your work" stuff. Besides, providing evidence might invoke the Heisenberg principle or, worse yet, cause Smart Parrot to be eaten by Schrodinger's cat.

Then where would we be?

I'm still working through the allusion to Alice. Such complexity evoked in nine simple words.

I didn't know the metas were ill. I'm sorry. I behaved badly. I apologize. Will Tamiflu help?

Still in all, what's this got to do with parrots? It seems neither here nor there to me. Parrots, avian last I checked, may need Tamiflu in large quantities. Have they licentiousness sufficient to their needs?

Parrots?

I believe in diversity but isn't this carrying things a bit too far?

Out of the One comes Two
and out of Two comes the ten thousand things.

Define "I".
