About the changing one's mind thing.

FWIW, if Eliezer *didn't* regularily change his mind, I likely would
not give him money.

He's working on something that Has Never Been Done Before (tm). It
seems to me that mental flexibility is the most important asset one
can have in this case.

Bitching him out for changing his mind a lot seems to me like
bitching Edison out for trying more than one lightbulb design.
