I am not sure of the context in which this
may have been mentioned....but i am
a big fan of abstract thought, anytime.
I may not agree with everything, but
that's something else.
Sometimes, it might be more effective communication to stay
on one level; or depending on the situation,
it might be necessary to
make clear transitions.
Ultimately, there are no hard and fast rules,
including what i agree or disagree
with from moment to moment.
