"I just want to make one serious point about this. I think ultimately the debate around whether or not, you know: Is he mentally stable? Is he showing the signs of senility? I think the reality is—whether or not that's true, and it may be very well true and it's frightening—there's actually not that much of a difference between someone who's spent a lifetime rejecting curiosity, rejecting learning, and following a pattern of thought that says he knows everything and doesn't need to know another thing, and someone who doesn't have the mental capacity anymore to retain new information because they're in mental decline."
