this keeps to Georges thought provoking philosophy. This way he/she who speaks the least, yet alludes the most, has the freshest breath... as I notice that the Edo was a period of redundancy, Momoyama a tail-end of ostentatious over abundance... and the Showa a period of silent demonstrative uncertainty,..... which is quite nicely oblique for a subtext system..
whereas Mikes selection of historic periods may show more sensitivity to actual acquisition of information gain or transmission...
but why rank anything?
shrug,.. I always liked silver stars better than gold stars in grade school, which -- considering I liked the color better for ingrained ethical reasons, meant that the real challenge was, how not to get a gold star, --- how many wrong answers will it take to get a silver one, ... and not a bronze and not the dreaded gold one.
not everyone has the same objectives if objectives need be measured... getting a gold star was easy, but the real challenge was figuring out how to throw the test so as not to get caught - which of course was strapable... but at least that was interesting from a choice of rat tail, beaver tail, or conventional ribbed leather or flat, stroped n' waxed. (btw. the beaver tail hurt the most --)(yah,.. I know, more than you needed to know, I'll try to keep responses at the fresh mountain breeze category..)
