I take your point about the South Pole having some people living
there. It is certainly not completely vacant. My point is not,
however, if there are people there, because of course there are, but
would they notice? We see what we expect to see, there are so many
examples. My point is if you travel to the South Pole and find nothing
unusual, you arrive where you expect to and find your research centre
or whatever, what need would you have to doubt your world view?
