At first I was irritated by your post. All caps tends to do that to me
. Then I thought: hmm iritation, you must have struck a chord with my subconsciousness.
Let me first voice my irritation: you dont want to know what Marks special big words mean. You have an aversion for them. You don't believe that it is worth the trouble to find out what they mean (and you might be right, at least from your point of view).
Lets see if I can answer your identity question from my
point of view: Mark represents logic and explanation. That is the crutch of my conscious mind. It keeps my beliefs inside well-known boundaries. You represent bravado. Just make an unsubstantiated claim. Don't try to hide the disability to back it up. Ignore sensible arguments against the claim. And look, you get away with it. It might have been unsubstantiated, but not powerless. Hence your alias
I've been listening to Steve's podcasts and I can see a spiral growing here. And it hasn't even comleted its first round. Is this leading anywhere (that is, is it an upward spiral)? Or is this a private game (on a public forum) that you two have played out many times before. That would probably have the effect that the points of view of either of you are now neatly carved in stone...
Please enlighten me. Also, feel free to flame me for interference
