lorem ipsum

Suppose that, in ‘The Wizard of Oz’, Dorothy is swapped out for a full-grown woman, how else should the story be changed so as to keep the story as consistent and complete as the original?

lorem ipsum

deeply burying the lede: ‘apparently not-P, but actually P’, with the ‘apparently’ merely implied, and the ‘actually P’ merely implied. An example is:
Full Stops Are The Most Passive-Aggressive Texting Punctuation Ever
with ‘P’ being ‘Messaging obeys certain well-defined laws.’, with not-P being expressed as ‘Messaging is a weird science that obeys no known law of the universe.’ The article then proceeds to show what laws messaging follows, leaving these laws in the hands of the reader at the end of the article.

RECIPROCITY

The number of equivalence relations times the temperature is constant. For example, the Earth has many equivalence relations, but the Sun has only one, being all ‘one thing’.
