My apologies, I certainly didn't intend to put words into either  
Kirby or Arthur's mouths.  I was only trying to address the "let's  
move this off list," ostensibly because both Kirby and Arthur had  
made some form of disapproving comments (not anti-turtle!).   
Personally, this kind of discussion is exactly the kind of thing that  
belongs on edu-sig, and it's a breath of fresh air to have so many  
different people posting on a topic (not that I am anti-Kirby or anti- 
Arthur, just pro-diversity).

And pro-turtle.  I wrote my own turtle graphics before noticing there  
was one bundled (and taking a different tact with it, more direct  
manipulation of the turtles).

I don't know.  Has anyone ever seen Arthur and Kirby in the same room

in it [...] All matter/space has some degree of "self" in it.  If  
either of these claims comes, in future, to be considered true, that  
would radically change our picture of the universe.  --Christopher
