I really liked your "five apples" piece, which you refer to from this entry, but I didn't quite understand what function the orange is supposed to have in the analogy..?

So unless explaining it would ruin it, could someone spell it out for me? :-}

The orange is the thing the believers miss because they’re too busy inventing things that don’t exist. The girl in the story above would never have discovered any real cures because she is unwilling to rule anything out – crystal healing, in this case – and so never makes any new discoveries.

Hey, you got a crystal from Ray BIERSDORFER!

That's cool.

That's Beiersdorfer.
