I have not written 460 volumes which purport to show that everyone
else in the world is wrong. I'm very aware of the fact that finding
something new that is true is very, very difficult.

When someone makes such grandiose claims as you have made, it is
up to them to convince others that those claims are true.
So far, your "convincing" seems to have been along avenues:
1) a few fantastically flawed arguements (I can see why you don't
2) assertions that if we buy your books/video and study them in
detail we will learn everything
The first point marks you, in my mind, as just another person who
doesn't understand the subject and rather than attempting to learn
the subject, makes it up in his mind.
It's the second point coupled with the first that makes me really
question your motives.
