I't hard for me to imagine a more obscure gateway to this interesting article.

Fact is that what is true changes with the observers and the context.  The only alternative to that must assume that there is some fixed preferred frame of reference of observers and context in which what is true does not change.  That alternative is usually  termed "absolute truth" and like the concept of "absolute velocity" was pretty much debunked in the early 20th century.

The new yorker article is just starting to crawl on the topic in relation to so called scientific investigation.  To me it's an interesting topic as anybody who has herd of a scientific finding and accepted it as true only to hear in the next decade that the opposite is now true, can attest.

Sorry, Seth, the cartoon was the most interesting part of the article & I reaeeekd it all.

I linked the article to give credit for the cartoon
it's unclear to me how you get to that cartoon from that article.  How did you connect them, i have of yet failed to make any connection at all.  Not that it matters, though.
It was on the second or maybe the third page imbedded along side text.

Sorry, I guess it was part of the NewYorker's Cartoon bank which changes day to day. I couldn't find it just now. http://www.cartoonbank.com/icat/1021

maybe "that" is why all the "interesting" dialogue about "it" happened over there on fb
