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
All space and matter, organic or inorganic, has some degree of life
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
