Sometimes in VM research, logic is employed in the place of fact. “It would have been logical for the VM author to do this or that”, or “It wouldn’t make sense…”
Tacitly, these assertions assume —
- The VM author was sane and acted in a completely logical and rational manner
- We have a complete and thorough understanding of what he wanted to achieve with the VM
- We have full insight in his mindset, ie how he planned to achieve what he wanted to achieve
Hm. Now look again at the VM and probe your heart.
