"The preeminence of a learned man over a worshiper is equal to the preeminence
of the moon, at the night of the full moon, over all the stars. Verily, the
learned men are the heirs of the Prophets."
-- A tradition attributed to Muhammad

It is surely a great calamity for a human being to have no obsessions.

While it cannot be proved retrospectively that any experience of possession,
conversion, revelation, or divine ecstasy was merely an epileptic discharge,
we must ask how one differentiates "real transcendence" from neuropathies
that produce the same extreme realness, profundity, ineffability, and sense
of cosmic unity. When accounts of sudden religious conversions in TLEs
[temporal-lobe epileptics] are laid alongside the epiphanous revelations of
the religious tradition, the parallels are striking. The same is true of the
recent spate of alleged UFO abductees. Parsimony alone argues against invoking
spirits, demons, or extraterrestrials when natural causes will suffice.
-- Barry L. Beyerstein, "Neuropathology and the Legacy of Spiritual
Possession", The Skeptical Inquirer, Vol. XII, No. 3, pg. 255

HOW TO PROVE IT, PART 4

proof by personal communication:
Eight-dimensional colored cycle stripping is NP-complete
[Karp, personal communication].

proof by reduction to the wrong problem:
To see that infinite-dimensional colored cycle stripping is
decidable, we reduce it to the halting problem.

proof by reference to inaccessible literature:
The author cites a simple corollary of a theorem to be found
in a privately circulated memoir of the Slovenian
Philological Society, 1883.

proof by importance:
A large body of useful consequences all follow from the
proposition in question.
