I just ordered a crystal rhombcuboctahedron on eBay because I like its geometrical properties, despite the mystical claims in the item listing. I did so with the full knowledge and expectation that these claims are almost certainly false, because, well, they’re mystical claims.
Here’s my ethical dilemma: would it be ethical to lab-test those claims, then post the results in the feedback I leave?
