Thanks Robert Williams for a clearly written and well thought
out response.

I tried to ask Dr. Sagan about the extraordinary. He'd gone to
college with friends and family of mine and we shared a similar
affinity for the tv show Sesame Street. My parents and my
seniors always considered him a cool guy.

I was then told the extraordinary is basically that which hasn't
been confronted yet. Example the world being spheroid instead of
flat. At one time it was extraordinary until someone had to let
the science do the work.

Same with the ETH. It was extraordinary and now commonplace and
unfortunately a blinder to one of those horses that can't find
it's way home. :)

Best, and I am definitely bookmarking your website. It's a
breath of fresh air.
