For other extrapolated series, there was not a significant difference between the growth rate of the series in question and the extrapolator series.
As an engineer, I am an extrapolator. I am a believer in, and a participant in, the march of progress.
This reduction of theory to a temporal (always implicitly outdated) accompaniment and extrapolator of poems, in privileging them to an extra-temporal (transcendent, paternal) position, is of course just the thing that Wystan wants to see retemporalised, set back into time, democratised.
