Cheerio, and a point totally lost on the recently-plonked. Even if there
is a particular THE truth, posturing and shouting "All must subscribe to
THE truth" is... well, the effects are drearily predictable. Mr. Nichols
got so purple he couldn't even read what I wrote.

Spacetime doesn't need to shout or produce a subpoena to enforce
gravitation; it just _is_-- modulo a few mysteries like the missing
mass. It is possible that one day there might truly be no more
mysteries. I wish Mr. Nichols selfspeed in bringing that day.
