Dear Michael -
As I acknowledged at the beginning of my previous post that I was being pedantic. I think the arguments you make are very sound. There are some things that can only be learned when one is face to face with a rug.
More, since the tactile experience is for me a large part of what I enjoy about rugs, the absence of that dimension does impoverish not just some aspects of learning but enjoyment.
But if you really insist that we cannot achieve "real learning" about rugs in this medium, I can only respond that I build learning experiences for a living (for about 35 years now) and that you and I draw the line about where "real learning" can happen and where it cannot in different places.
