Yes indeed. The intended weight (value) of playing cards is indeed assigned symbolically. In that context it has nothing to do with mass. In bridge, an Ace of spades carries more weight (greater value) than an Ace of clubs even as the Ace of clubs weighs more than an Ace of spades (as demonstrated earlier). OK, now you have moved the goal posts several times from your original difference in weight comparison among playing cards. Even then, in a vacuum a feather and an anvil will fall at the same rate. This a proven scientific fact. But the original objection to the use of playing cards was about its lack of subtlety. Can you tell the difference between the weights of playing cards when the difference is measured in centigrams and randomly distributed among the different values of the cards in the deck? It took a guy with scientific scale 1/10000 accuracy to measure the differences. Are you telling me we have people with that kind of brainpower and sensory awareness who can tell the difference in weight in individual playing cards? I find that hard to believe. And I'm sure supermarkets will back me up on that...Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image! But even that was not the context in which I was using the term "weight" this time. If you read my post more thoughtfully, I'm sure you will see the context in which I was using the term, .....Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image! Of course weight existed, and in several contexts. A medicineman in those days carried a lot of weight within the tribe, he had the paints to prove it. As doctors do today in society, they wear the title MD. In days of old trading, a pretty seashell carried as much weight in value as a deer hide. Sacred items carried a lot of weight among primitive peoples. As they do today, still. No, not in the context I used the term. Oh, I know what I was saying. Apparently no one else did because they do not attach enough weight to my posits, so let me clarify the definition of weight strictly as a value, without attachment to mass. https://www.google.com/search?q=weight definition And who wants to carry the weigth of the world on their shoulders? I don't .
