Toothcomber's Lack of Clarity

I am writing this to say that I am in profound sympathy with Samares Kumar Das’s predicament (“Some Clarity Please,” EPW, 30 May 2015). As in his case, so in mine: Toothcomber tends to pass over my head too. And when he (Toothcomber) writes out of the blue about Euclidean spaces and Cobb-Douglas production processes, I too fail to understand. In fact, I have not the slightest idea of what he means. Having said this, it may be fair to speculate that Toothcomber is writing pure drivel; and it may be the case that he intends not to be understood: after all, how can one be challenged if one cannot be comprehended? By the way, I mean it when I say that I have not the slightest idea of what Toothcomber means. I should know. I am Toothcomber.
