I think the drawing board was invented at the same time as time began, hence it was always available to go back to

But......... the ethos of going back to the real beginning is correct


Going back to one step after the start is a mistake

You make a good point there,
How can this planets most intelligent life form be so stupid at times, just looking at the world news and events at home over the last 2 weeks makes me stop and think "how does it get as bad as this".

Sorry if I've strayed off topic a little here, I'll go no further up the wrong path.
