If that's so, why are you consistently unable to accurately describe any of the philosophical positions contained in these mindsets, including your own?

There are certainly gulfs here, but I can't help wondering whether the real gulf is between the perception and reality of the quality of these bridges between mindsets.

Your ability to wonder has failed you thus far, so I wouldn't trust it any more.

Way to avoid the question.

This complete inability to ever respond substantively is the exact cause of my suspicion. There is a reality that people display talent by exercising it, whether that's a talent for writing, reasoning, singing, dancing or anything else.

If you're really able to traverse vast gulfs between diverse mindsets, why not actually do it? Why stick to this banal, low grade back and forth?

Just imagine how boring these threads would get if everyone else behaved the same way, and justified almost every post by telling everyone else how clever and talented they were, or telling you how untalented and unclever you are every time you tell us you are. You're so reliant on other people's good behaviour, but you don't seem to realise it, which is a real shame.
