Many years ago I was on twitter but I did not really like it so I left and will never return.

My twitter handle was @peterDLROW

I chose this handle as one of the original screening tests for dementia, the MMSE, asked for the interviewee to spell the word “world” backwards. I was never good at spelling forwards or backwards and was considered a “backward learner”. I agree with Mary Midgley that all reductionism is an exaggeration. Yet so much of the scientific world gives faith to single word labels. Perhaps this is a backward thing to do?
