Lies—-lies, again—-and still, they lie!

The analogue of this in classical Hamiltonian theory would be to find a canonical transformation to a normal form in which explicit many-body interactions were reduced to an irreducible residual part, with the collective interactions being incorporated in a renormalised “unperturbed” Hamiltonian.
