It has already been established among logical thinkers that what Stan says is happening cannot be so -- and all of us have tried to use CTE enough to understand that. It isn't like we just don't get it because we haven't tried CTE enough. The only possibility is that in the book Stan either stops saying that all shots can be made objectively without "user input" or he modifies his position on that.
Put another way 2+2 will never equal 5 no matter how you present it or how good you are at math.
In a nutshell: It’s not reliable or consistent. I’ve tried every version of CTE and l find that I fall back to my reliable system of visualization and allowance for throw and other factors consistent with the speed of the cloth and the collision of solid spheres.
