No? So...contentment and satisfaction are what you seem to think are the results or rewards of a "good discussion"? The feelings of contentment and satisfaction would seem to be the results or rewards of thinking that one had won an argument - which seems to conflict with your previous statement : So...? I have yet to fully understand your position, primarily because of your somewhat ambiguous statement from your Post #92 : Which is why I asked for clarification by Posting the following questions : So...is that the way you see it? Or...is that the way that you would see it? Or...is that the way that you think that you would see it? If you do not care to move the discussion forward, then you are in no way obligated to do so. But until you clarify your position or approach, I will not be able to discern whether or not your position or approach is persuasive or unpersuasive. BTW, who else could be or would be writing my sentences?
