Dear Alan,

I wanted to thank you for your great intellectual impact on me. I’m happy to have learned so many things from you, but I’ll mention two things that certainly stroke me the most.

The first thing is learning that I can’t intuit my own theory, learning to appreciate the theory not as an object of intuition, but as an object of calculation. The second is learning that I don’t speak English, learning to appreciate all the wordings and metaphors that constantly enriched our conversations.

Thank you!
