mostconducive: HELP! I teeter on the con-sense non-sense distinction!

Hello I'm a Wikipedia first-timer, as of today. I have a lot to say (the content can be determined by the explicated interests I have all over my journal and profile; they're of metaphysical import).

Wikipedia says to be bold, and I am, in my entries. I'm using my expertise in Alfred North Whitehead's Philosophy and George Spencer-Brown's calculus to make catchy and interesting refinements to the consensual metaphysical definitions.

I have a couple important original contributions, which I think are valid, I hope they don't get deleted. I did the article on "Profundity" which is a term I don't hear as much as I should. For this contribution I credited myself (humbly, of course), since I place it metaphysically accurately, which a novice to metaphysics wouldn't necessarily appreciate. Any feelings on this one?

No, original research is not allowed. Things you wrote shouldn't be posted by you. If they are of value, someone else will post them. The page you wrote about yourself will probably get deleted as vanity.

Further, [[profundity]] isn't particularly legible (before or after my edit) to a person who has not been dunked in the lingo.

Addressing a comment in one of your other superfluous threads, there is a link at the top of the main page (the words "anyone can edit", specifically) to Wikipedia:Introduction. You will find the links there most enlightening, such as Wikipedia:How to edit a page.
