The answer crucially hinges on the meaning of "as".

This thread kind of reminds me of Durwood Fincher.

Go on.

If "as" is to mean "such 'as'" as in "'as' such", then the answer is, "Of course". But, of course, if "as" is to mean "'as' much 'as'" as in "in'as'much", then the answer is, "No can do, soldier."

Hope that cleared things up.

I must confess this is proof that I must understand what people mean. The burden is not on them to express themselves but on me to understand... Maybe someone will be kind enough to translate it to me when its mission is completed.

The answer is essentially contingent on the meaning of "to".

For anyone wondering why this is in philosophy, think "Colorless green ideas sleep furiously".

Well, assume for a moment that "as" means "as to" as in "as to go such far even". Even YOU couldn't even been HALF what "as" has been as there.

As you recommended, I assumed that for a moment. A couple of moments, in fact. It is was too long. I should have gotten out when I had the opportunity; now all I can see is the raining computer code underlying all of reality (which I see is merely a simulation), and am immersed in a perpetual state of ineffable enlightenment. Serenely, I now realize that no one has really gone far even as never decided, for it is unpossible that they could even go want to do look more like.

I am The One (and so are you).
