Hi Dick,

***I think that's a line from a movie! As I have said many times, when you can't figure something out, your best bet is to "trust your feelings". However, to believe your feelings are always right is folly! When we talk about rational things, one must lay feelings aside.***

I'm not following you (btw, Obiwan said "trust the Force, Luke"). I don't believe I insinuated that we should trust our feelings in regards to how to treat our abstractions. My contention is that you treat abstractions as constraints, which I think can only be treated as a tool having pragmatic (instrumental) benefits.

Can you elaborate how you connected 'feelings' with my contention?

Warm regards, Harv
