Let's leave it at that shall we. But please - no more dissing of current print research without basis. I'm not sure anyone here has shown themselves in a position to write off other people's work as "assumptions", expecially without having read it!
You did indeed make it quite clear that you are a novice in this field. Can I respectfully suggest again that you consult or read someone who isn't before coming to any "conclusions"?
Oh, by the way, I'm just curious. When you say you "deal with your energies" what do you mean? Are you saying that you do some of your research based on hunch?
Well, I may reassure you, that in my personal evaluation of incoming information my personal mind with all its limitations, which has the defined job to correlate just this incoming information with that data, with already has been gathered and sorted in my life, is simply the final instance.
Well, not unusual, I would guess, I assume that for everybody else as far I feel some right to assume some selfresponsible activity from him/her. When you now tell me: "I told you why in research terms they make absolutely no sense", you may be right for the state of everybodies else mind (and surely most likely they do not care, what I think, and naturally that's not a blasphemy, communicative misbehaviour or something like this, but just the normal well acceptable pragmatic thinking), .... but not in mine naturally.
So, when I tell you about my doubts, these doubts are not intended to be relevant in somebodies else research, but in mine, as I've to watch about my energies ... and even if you as person would have greatest doubts about my mental sanity, the involved conclusions of my inner logic or whatever, you may perhaps once realise, that I've some patience and endurance with this strategy .... , and as far this manifested opinion about early woodvcut printing is concerned ... well, I don't will predict anything in this case, but it wouldn't be the first thing, which my eyes saw once looking very solid, becoming weaker with the time, stumbling finally and suddenly being a theory of yesterday ... or even something which never really existed.
"I'm not sure anyone here has shown themselves in a position to write off other people's work as "assumptions", expecially without having read it! "
I made plainly clear, that I refered to contradicting informations collected somewhere in the internet. And I definitely opened myself in the start of the thread for explaining facts, to judge myself, if the main line of these observed contradicting opinions "about 1400" is somehow correct. I would accept any better information. You didn't offer better informations, but only a place and a activity, which would lead in your opinion to better insight. So you not identified yourself as somebody who could really give good advices in this case.
So why I should have talked suddenly about "assumptions" of other people in a negative way? Either there are facts, which make the whole statement plausible, or there are no facts, which solidify the whole matter.
I just want to know the central fact, which justify the assumptions and informations, which I've seen somewhere in an insecure context. You said: "Go to England ..." and I : "I've to care for my energies ...", that are practical decisions, not decisions about other people qualities, which I can't see and know. And I talked about that, what was controllable by myself and that was my own private attempt with internet resources, which gave me the evaluation, that German internet articles are by far better than anything what I've found in English articles ... so I don't think, that I will find Rome somewhere in London.
And what we as trionfi.com do and if we work solid or not, and if we get with our methodes good results or not, that you can evaluate, when you read our site.
As far the word "assumptions" is concerned, so my English/German wordbook knows a neutral and a negative reading of it. The correlating German word "Annahme" is possible much more neutral than the English common use. I can't judge. Is English your mother language? Naturally Annahmen are used in research and they are normally justifiable as "the best one can do in an insecure, not further researchable situation".
However, communication from mouth to mouth and mind to mind often enough have the simple human effect, that once justifiable "Annahmen" become "reality as manifested opinion: it was so and so.", although the once really researching mind never stated that. My initial request was simply aiming at bringing light in this dark forest about the factual conditions.
So, and now I would like to finish this, as far it doesn't belong to the research request.
Is there something with the planets? Too much Mars somewhere?
