I agree with this. Find out what troubles him ... leave aside for now
whether it's a true, or false, picture of reality as you understand

This then leads to you painting a picture for him:

"So ... if I could demonstrate for you a way in which Python [X Y
Z ...], how would that be for you?"

Keep refining this until his answer (in words or otherwise) is
"Fantastic, great, super!".

Find out what will allow him to buy into it for himself, and then
build/demonstrate that.
