Replying to LO26893 --

Really, I have virtually ;-) no idea, what this is about
("consternation"). But I am in a writing mood today, so another one...

Greetings At and Leo,

As a LimBeg problem I may choose on the amount and ratio of apples and
pears I wish, checking for the price I can gain per apple. Perhaps I will
add double value to the apples by cutting them into quaters (value for the
buyer), keeping the pips to grow apple trees (value for me, although with
considerable time lag).

As a MonCat problem I could not solve it but feel compelled to ask many
questions like What is the problem? What do I want? Is what is given
subject to change? How can I influence the change?....

So: From the command ("mission"), which the formulation of the problem is,
I "solve" it by creating a set of statements ("vision" of solution), when
I look at it as LimBeg and I "solve" it by creating a sequence of
questions ("knowledge - not knowledge") when it is presented as MonCat.

Now I burn to hear more!
