Doe anyone feel that at times our discussions here get too abstract? No, not feeling that there's too much abstraction (actually I kinda like it ;) :D)... even sometimes it seems that there isn't enough abstraction...

maple... there is always a concept lurking behind the emotion of fear... can you articulate it... Love Hmm, not sure how to explain... I'm saying the bare and naked "emotion of fear" has nothing to do with the "concept of fear" (although I admit the two can also be connected)... It's like when that...
