I was simply astounded, and unfortunately didn’t take a picture of the surreal event (I think it was at either Fashion Valley or Mission Valley mall in San Diego). I can’t even remember the store, but it was something well-known like the Gap.It was the section of his paper beginning:The totality of our so-called knowledge or beliefs, from the most casual matters of geography and history to the profoundest laws of atomic physics or even of pure mathematics and logic, is a man-made fabric which impinges on experience only along the edges.
