     The following was taped up in the grad student lounge in the
Department of Mathematics for 8 years.  I never got one commment.  I
guess it must be wrong.
 
 
                                 Since,
 
 
                       Learning Across a Distance
 
                                Implies
 
                    Learning by Being an Effect, and
 
 
                                 Since,
 
 
                      Learning by Being an Effect
 
                                Implies
 
                      Not Learning with Certainty,
 
 
                         One can conclude that,
 
 
                        Learning with Certainty
 
                                Implies
 
                 Learning, but not by Being an Effect,
 
                 and therefore, not across a Distance.
