Well if that posture was important to the Founder, then I think it is worth emulating. If by this I lock myself down, so be it. If you thing that Stevens is fibbing in the text of the photo, so be it. If degrees is calculating and directions is not, well, so be it.
I didn't say anything about fibbing (that was in reference to a different passage, but I didn't say "fibbing" there, either), I said that it's impossible to tell from the context exactly what he meant by "correct". If you are of the opinion that mimicking his outer form at all times is the way to go then that's fine, but I differ.

Best,

Chris
