I keep suggesting that this distinction is blurred in different ways according to the aim of the particular point wishing to be made. I opine that posts on a list can *only* be conceptual and that, at times, the literality of things is taken to the point of absurdity in the interest of other aims.
J: I'm not trying to avoid whatever dhamma issue it is you're wishing to discuss, it's just that I can't really get the point you're making :-)) If you could state it as a clear proposition I'd be happy to respond.
