And Asher’s gonna asher:
“He’s not dumb but when I point out that without science and
philosophy everything that makes his art media possible wouldn’t exist.
It doesn’t even register with him.”
It clearly runs in the family.
“The most obvious possibility is that the “it” refers to science being a necessary condition for various art media used by my brother. However, the reference doesn’t make any sense given the context which is that I am aware of the scientific advances that make my brother’s visual art possible.
The other possibility for Vox’s “it” is that “things” don’t register for me. Fine, but that is, in itself, an empty reference. What things? Everything? Some things? If not everything then what set of things? Vox doesn’t make this clear, and, in doing so he ends up sounding like Amanda Marcotte.
Yes, science being a necessary condition for various art media is clearly the most obvious possibility. And yes, I sound EXACTLY like Amanda Marcotte.
“Your “it” has no clear object of reference.”
It is sufficiently clear to the sufficiently intelligent. I often find Asher’s take on things to be more than a little fascinating. It’s rather like watching a retarded Spock in action. His attempts at ad hominem are the best; they resemble someone attempting to trash talk in a language they’ve studied for three semesters in college.
“And I suppose you your mother find sex response to attract, yes?”
