Actually, I think it points to the fact that my "tacit knowing" is still
turning the thing over and over, like a Chinese puzzle, looking for the
right first place to push... and that I'm in no hurry to "force" an
articulation. This is an example of what I sometimes call my
"methodological agnosticism". (Also, I have the body in the middle, which
is the fascinating and puzzling thing for me. I've been playing with the
"fit" between the concepts "mind" and "spirit" for a while now, and along
comes Andrew and throws "body" right smack in the middle -- and then tells
me to paint them all together! Thanks again, Andrew, that stepped up the
entropy production a fair bit!!)
