I'm sure Al Viro is quite familiar with the philisophical void. Causality is an illusion! Descartes couldn't exit his empty room, Godel showed that there's no such thing as trust, 9.8 m/s/s is an unprovable convenience. Let's all throw up our hands in despair!
I realize that you were satirizing Viro's post mocking your own, but I'm not quite sure what you were trying to say... Maybe lay off the philosophy books for a bit until reality returns? :)
