these are not "fundamentalist  **MISinterpretations**".

these are Consequences of "fundamentalist  **MISinterpretations**", which,
"fundamentalist  **MISinterpretations**", constitute the '"nterpretations"
to which strictly-literal-lfolks ["fundamentalists"] adhere.

the whole 'point' of my earlier post was that folks act on their
interpretations because they experience their interpretations as coinciding
with 'reality', when they are, in fact, only the stuff of the 'language'
interface. coincidence with reality exists, if at all, at a deeper 'level',
so it's good to operate at that deeper 'level' before acting in ways that
by-produce Consequences such as those to which i referred.

in your latest post, two posts in the thread beyond this one, you [again]
'eliminate' context, and then 'make-up' whatever direction it is in which
you want to 'steer' the discussion, in the way of some wasteful 'dance', not
'bothering' to actually deal with anything that's actually in anything i've
posted.

i'd answer you in a trying-to-be-informative way, if you'd just query' in a
way that explicitly states a question, explicitly with respect to stuff that
i've actually posted.

it's because you did not, and because you remove contextual information that
i'd provided, that i Chose to 'stand on what i've posted'.

one can See-Clearly, through the 'lens' of the 'moving away from', inherent
in your posts, that your interests lie somewhere other than in the stuff of
discrete-information-exchange.

as Lincoln said, "A man has not time to spend half his life in quarrels."
