OK. Both of us take a ratio. At least we have this in common.
  Normalized Measure = M(X)/M(Y).

The difference between us is that:

1) I constrain M(Y) to be the absolute measure of the observer himself such
that the normalized measure of the observer (as observed by him) is precisely
one. All his other observations are similarly normalized according to his own

2) You believe that M(Y) can be (more or less) arbitrarily chosen.

OK. I grant you the latitude that our research group implies: uncritically
discussing uncertain issues for the purpose of furthering our understanding.
I accept the fact that your method of computing measure is so-to-speak "under
construction." Please note that with my method your condition #2 "the result
could be
consistent with our observations" holds for the observer himself.

BTW I checked the site gave.
Interesting. This paper is definitely not porcine effluent. It outlines some
research in pig farming with much more down-to-earth and lucrative potential
than our theorizing in this group.
