In my recent post I noted that Plaga's article has been on the xxx site
since their server was a 386. I want to be clear that my comment was not
meant as a dig at Plaga, nor his paper--just that it has been around since
'95 and I can't recall anyone commenting (constructively) on it. As for
astute knowledge in the QM Codex being a requirement, I seem to recall
that, before Ed Whitten took an interest in physics, his undergrad degree
was in History. Einstein was a---well, we all know what Einstein was
during his miracle year.*

I would suggest re Plaga or anyone else discussed here, it's not the time
spent in a particular academic trench that makes the idea great, it's the
quality of the insight.
