I must correct my using of the word 'procedural' for defining Lua.
I just copied it *wrong* from Thomas Jericke's writing above.
He didn't mean it. I only copied the word *wrong*.

I understand why C++ deserves paradigm-agnostic. Template Meta Programming is just found by chance. It's not designed by anyone.

I've always found the word "procedural" to be used as a negative
