Well, I did misread your post. When I re-read it, it seems to be a much weaker claim (i.e. not all that controversial). I just erased a paragraph that builds on my previous sentence. I finished off my stash of pot over the weekend, and I've decided not to replace it for a while. This is the first time I've tried to compose a Virus post at night while not high in many months, and my thinking isn't very clear.

Let me know if you see a change in my style of presentation over the next few weeks.

That was a reference to one of Prof. Tim's recent posts in which he likened reason to air to express how essential it is to good living. It's essential, but, like air, it doesn't provide for all of one's needs. A Breathetarian would claim otherwise. As far as being "sure" that you're a Breathatarian; I don't think you fall into that camp. My remark was a cheap shot at an unspecified target, and I regret having fired it.
