Re: Scotty and his military comment

The Jewish sages who wrote the Talmud wrote that the Old Testament could be interpreted in four different ways. They were:
* Peshat - simple, literal interpretation of the work
* Remez - hints and allusions in the work
* Drush - deeper meanings in the work
* Sod - esoteric, mystical meanings in the work

I feel that many discussions of Star Trek often work at the Peshat, Remez, and, occasionally, Drush levels. Rarely, I have seen people working at the Sod level.
