[Dan Connolly] I don't know why people keep saying that. It's just not so. [Lynn Stein] I don't know why people keep saying that. It's just not so. When Drew says "the obvious way", I don't think he's referring to what Peter wrote. Yes, by the "obvious" way I meant avoiding any reification, and just making the representation of p and q occur unaltered as pieces of the representation of (if p q). So any triple that occurs in p would also occur in (if p q), and hence be asserted when (if p q) was asserted. -- Drew McDermottReceived on Tuesday, 5 June 2001 10:27:19 UTC
