Consciousness, Part 2

David Forster: [[I’m not so sure we (I’d say YOU but that sounds rather accusatory, hostile, and divisive, whereas saying WE sounds inclusive and makes it sound like we’re compatriots discussing in civilized manner a matter of intellectual interest; and before you accuse me of more PCness, think of it as a harmless rhetorical technique designed to keep unnecessary emotion out of the discussion and the focus on the real subject; and if that doesn’t work for you, feel free to write it off as an idiosyncrasy of mine when dealing with people I’ve never met and whose behavior I cannot predict) should be so dismissive of “subjectivity.”]]

Now there’s a hell of a sentence. Believe me when I say I’m not taking sides here. I really enjoy the level of discourse in this forum!

The intercourse is interesting as well.
