Wonkiness

No... no... I am becoming a wonk. Or perhaps a sub-wonk. 'Wonk', if you must know, is 'know' reversed. Or it is a cross between 'won' and 'monk'.

Exhibit A:
From this researcher’s personal perspective, Mittelman’s overall philosophy seems akin to the idea that the same electromagnetic field can produce different effects in different contexts and be perceived and evaluated differently when different instruments and media are used — light, after all, still acts paradigmatically as both wave and particle, and has a dominant role in both optics and visual arts, among other disciplines. Hence caution is required when asserting the primacy of an existing paradigm for subsuming the new data, or when asserting that a completely new paradigm exists based on the new data.
