Jerry, Edwina, John C,

It might be helpful to all, and also for the purpose of archiving, if one
of you would move this discussion to a differently named thread in your
next post as it seems not closely connected to the subject--Peirce's
cosmology--of this thread.

As I noted several weeks ago, the usual way this is done is to post with
the new Subject title, followed by, in this case, "was, Peirce's Cosmology."
