Generally I do not respond to the robot Cimode's posts as they are usually incoherent psychotic non-sense. However, the statement above requires a response and it is worth responding since it's a prime example of the haywire configuration that is Cimode.

That is a philosophy and mathematics question regarding the theory of probability (a measure applied to statements) and the theory of bearing (a measure applied to questions). The word "ignorance" above is used in the probabilistic sense of "lack of specific knowledge", something that we have a very hard time dealing with theoretically.

How Cimode managed to associate this probability and bearing theory question to eugenics, tagging of people, deportation, and fascist tyranny is utterly bizarre and mindless.
