    When I created this nick I was reading a philosophy book which said Aristotle was called the "paradox log" because he talked using paradoxes. I didnt want to seem a philosopher, I just liked the reference. Rarely I have not find any mention to that out of books.

    Ummmm. As an newbie, I was only searching for long and complicated words. I settled with excogitator after I found it means "a thinker who considers carefully and thoroughly".
    I'm still lost on what exactly I'm supposed to consider thinking about.

    interesting that excogitate is so similar to exfoliate[ex-foli-ate]

    I wonder what cogito means? Rene Descarte uttered the famous sentece "cogito ergo sum", I think, therefore I am.

    cogito - think

    ex - means to originate, emanate, enormous, proceeding from.


    Oh well

    Actually cogitus is think, cogito is the dativus of cogitus.

    aha, so -ator indicates the person?(as in dictator, terminator, aggitator)

    Latin translations always sounds humbug, like -"oh yeah, like that really means that!"

    ex-cogit-ator is more or like "emanating/originating thoughts from a person"?

    correct?

    like biblioator = He who is an book?

    Ah, so its latin. Consider that. Took quite some thinking.
