I don't know, it made sense to me, and I didn't do any research to understand
any part of it. I guess it may be a difference in our education, reading
habits, or the fact that I have no need for recreational drug use. Or it
could be that I just don't take what I'm watching seriously enough to argue
with seventh and eighth level subplots that have little real barring on the
series as a whole (just good entertainment). Anyone who has actually bothered
to read the Old and New Testament of the Bible (The Old being the most
informative), the Karan, and the Book of Mormon (which taking all for books
as a whole are an excellent work of science fiction, in my opinion), one
could easily understand the major plot lines and many of the smaller subplots.
