On the first excerpt, I guess you divine the meaning by intuition. Suppose you tell us the essential thrust of the sentence in twenty words or less, and do essential justice to the author, meaning what he essentially wants to say aside from telling the whole world about his acquaintance with so many things and ideas.
About the second text, by intuition can you tell us in less than a fourth of the words volume employed by the author, his essential thrust, and do him justice, paring out all the things and ideas he also wants the world to know that he knows.
On a less emotive note, do you think and wish that people with so much knowledge and ideas would write simply and concisely their most insightful thoughts, and just let the reader suspect their vast learning and abyss of wisdom. Hehehehe.
And before I forget, as I write in this box for writing my message, my lines of words automatically fold on reaching the right edge -- I use a bigger text size for writing and reading messages. Can the good people here tell me how to enable also the messages already published in this forum, namely to wrap around as lines reach the right edge of the box? As of now, I have to push the screen to the right and then to the left in order to read whole lines.
