I've read the interview as well. To me it's the same-old same-old. He is always claiming that the only way you can learn is through manual transmission from the "old masters" (one of which would be him, of course)
I dont see any evidence in the interview that backs up his claims.
PS Though I also am grateful to Pablo Veron - he may not be humble, but there's no denying his excellence
Who knows, 6000 years ago God gave us a size significantly smaller than his/hers but today there is this genetically-modified food that turns a newborn chick into a 5-pound chicken in less than 10 days, if a human makes it his/her diet then he/she might become quite big.
