But does this mean you think no one should discuss ideas that are not fully
developed? To use my earlier example, do you think Einstein should have kept
his mouth shut about ideas like the equivalence principle and curved space
until he had the full equations of general relativity worked out, and that
if he did try to discuss such half-finished ideas with anyone it would be
because he just liked to hear himself talk?
