Topic: Is the colon after 'are' required?

Well, you can't simply take it out. You could possibly use a dash instead, but I think a colon is better.
Topic: very sure or very certain ....
Posted: Monday, October 23, 2017 6:34:03 AM
If you're certain of something, you know it is true. So 'very certain' is not really correct. But people often add the 'very' for emphasis, not to indicate a greater degree of certainty.
Topic: other way?
Posted: Monday, October 23, 2017 6:13:51 AM
I'm having trouble with understanding this sentence: "All who now refer to it distinguish it from at least one other way that we deal with, digest, and use our mental experience."

Especially, "at least one other way" confuses me.

Could someone explain this sentence's meaning to me?


'at least one' just means 'one or more'

So they distinguish it it one way, but they might distinguish it in more than one way.

I've never heard 'woke' used as an adjective. I suppose that must mean I am not woke. Anyway, let's keep the verb form. It's handy.

Those highly egotistical artists think reductionist empirical drama is dead.
