Ok, I'll elaborate, you are really close with one misunderstanding, I am not a vocal person so I probably didn't explain well.
Some people do in fact know more, of a given train of thought or a given reality, or discipline.....
this person may be an expert in conventional grain farming.
Another person may be an expert in permaculture
But neither are better or more expert than the other, the disciplines are while similar diametrically opposed, ones truth is the others lie....
If you had two folks of the exact same cultivar than one could be in theory "smarter" than another, but to what end? The less enlightened in a given tutelage are often the bringers of big change and enlightenment in the whole discipline. So one could say often they are "smarter", just as the youth prevail over the aged 100% of the time.
Traditional builders say seal the building and let machines do the ventilation, natural folks say let nature ventilate and stop the air conditioning madness choosing instead a breathable home that is only heated not cooled.
Neither is "better" because both are "better" for a given section of the population. A seal person says it is better to seal and let the electric ventilate, a breathing person knows that you cannot trust the electric or the machine to always work, and you can trust that heat rises ( the driving force on natural ventilation)....
So be what I am saying Terry is a sealer, and I am a breathable, no matter how much school he has taken that teaches sealing, the fact remains that neither has bested the other......sealing is best for some, breathable is best for some
Neither can be fact until all parties agree, and all science and methods are exhausted, so that is impossible on the thought that methods and science is ever changing.
Does this make sense, it is a very Asian type thinking that is sort of my religion.....sort of
I see that natural builders and science types are already split and the issue is in us being forced together by lack of individual outlet. I think to force the two together is like trying to make sheep and hog people raise their animals on the same feed.
So an engineer said I can't post here, all it takes is a rocket heater person to say I can post there and a goat sheep and llama person to assert her facts and argue that I am not allowed, before long it's just experts helping no one, they have all been banned from being there
The problem is those facts are exactly what I am speaking to, there are folks who disagree with the international building code commission and the building industry in the very same way that many permies disagree with big pharma and the pertrolium based farming industry.
Those industries will argue fact here to if we allowed big pharma and Monsanto to voice their "truth" here
Many of these facts are purchased in labs, they are bought just as surely as Monsanto is buying doctors to say "it's safe"
The modern IBCC momentum will have us living in perfectly engineered coffins and death traps.thats the reality of my world, my fact, my "truth"
You cannot seal in an organic without issue, that's just one part of this building industry selling us its products of plastic death
I don't get why some people are the truth police, no one hands out badges or asks someone to do this job.
The reality is that personalities, beliefs, morals, politics and environment make so many variables that one man cannot proclaim a truth, no matter the amount of study in a field.
I once met a carpenter who was 94 and was making things that I still have awe in, I asked if he was a master carpenter, he said no I've been a carpenter long enough to know the ones who gave me that title dint know better.....
This was especially world shaking to me as I myself had attained a master carpenter level through my journeyman work , and I was 64 years his younger.
So I am weary of any man who knows the "truth" as I feel he is not allowing for further study, or the possibility of being wrong, or the possibility of another person living with a parallel truth that he has not yet realized.
By saying I know better than you....you forgo the possibility of learning from someone who might have a lesson you have not yet come across.
