via Wikipedia, it might have been taken too lightly: "Carnap then attended the University of Jena, where he wrote a thesis defining an axiomatic theory of space and time. The physics department said it was too philosophical, and Bruno Bauch of the philosophy department said it was pure physics."

An anecdote of Oscar Wilde, illustrating his maxim "Anyone can sympathise with the sufferings of a friend, but it requires a very fine nature - it requires, in fact, the nature of a true Individualist to sympathise with a friend's success."
"The devil was once crossing the Libyan Desert, and he came upon a spot where a number of small fiends were tormenting a holy hermit. The sainted man easily shook off their evil suggestions. The devil watched their failure and then he stepped forward to give them a lesson. “What you do is too crude,” said he. “Permit me for one moment.” With that he whispered to the holy man, “Your brother has just been made Bishop of Alexandria.” A scowl of malignant jealousy at once clouded the serene face of the hermit. “That,” said the devil to his imps, “is the sort of thing which I should recommend.”

"It was Rudolf Carnap’s dream for the last three decades of his life to show that science proceeds by a formal syntactic method; today no one to my knowledge holds out any hope for that project." Hilary W. Putnam, "Pragmatism and Realism" (2012).

before my seeing others’ comments: My solution [arrived to through the 32-pixel, B&W, restartable-moving-pieces setting and “(?)”]: in view of the following possibility\s::::::
black king moves south\
\ ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, it seems [ re-verification is intended later on and before seeing others’ comments] that white's qhseven starts
