Which is why all of these discussions are so silly. Everybody wants to teach, nobody wants to learn because everybody thinks they already know; if there is a point to it, it is beyond my comprehension.

I do not talk to people who don't listen to me and I cannot understand why other people do. My best guess is that they are actually talking to themselves, reassuring themselves that they are right, and using other people as a means of self-deception.


Well, actually in SOME cases I am letting off steam [too many years writing "What does this mean? Please see me" on student papers]. In others I am probing to se who is actually a mind user willing to talk without teaching, because however much we know there is more, and some of what we know is wrong, and I always thing best talking to somebody good enough to MAKE me think.
