The thread was much much more than I could attentively follow. My vocabulary
is different from most posts and so the 'first person prime' is hard to
My views do not derive from that thread. 'My' 1st person views are derived
from 'impacts' (I will accept a better word) I get - interpreted (adjusted?)
according to my 'mindcontent' - experinece, knowledge-base, personality, -
which means that it is by no means primary. My percept of reality is a
composite of them all.
Yours is different. If you tell me about yours, I will 'catch' them in the
form my 1st person(ality) understands them, not as you thought it.
I wonder if I "caught" your question?
