On simplifying

Someone called this columnist's bluff and asked for a straightforward account of an obscure argument in a previous column.

What do you make of the result?
  • Was it well done?
  • Do you now understand it?
  • If you understood it before, was anything lost in translation?
  • How much does the {lost in translation} stuff matter?
  • Accepting that some academic and technical jargon and discourse is necessary, how do we define the boundaries?
