      Why would anyone be averse to argument?  How else can one learn or solve the unknown?

        Guy's original post implied he was frustrated by the sort of closed argumentation in which there is no real listening or further communication. When one introduces oneself to a forum in that way, it may indicate an aversion to any argument, so I extended the courtesy of asking if it was okay to discuss.

          Discusion is great at a party or about the weather; however, it would seem that one needs controversies to reach beyond an unknown to learn.  JMHO

            I believe you're right about that. Agreement may be comfy, but it seems to put us to sleep. It seems to me that all movement is through tension. The tension of desire is the movement of experience. Physical tension leads to movement. The tension of problems leads to creative solutions. The tension of suffering often leads to transcendence. So, tension was never a problem, it's the resistance to the 'movement' that becomes struggle. Tension....in-tense....intention. Hmmmmm.....thanks for helping create the tension so's I could notice that. Hehe.
