Naw. I don't really care, honestly. It's not close to what or how I believe, so it doesn't really reach me. But I do think that if it is supposed to reflect somebody, it would need to be plausible...and, one would hope, incisive in some way.
Yeah, that's possible. I was just trying to understand how the analogy could be relevant, but maybe I guessed wrong. Culpa mea. But if, as you say, "It doesn't comply with [my] views," then I can't imagine how that could be, if you didn't mean to promote any particular view through it in the first place.Besides, I think you are assuming that I am trying to say more than I am.
I get that.It was only an illustration of two different ways of thinking; two different approaches to explaining how things happen.
But wouldn't you think that an analogy has to actually "work," in the sense that it must accurately reflect how somebody would reason in real life? I just don't know who you would ever find who reasons in the way you describe. And, as you say, it's open to the sort of misinterpretation of it you suggest I may have made...so something's not quite 'on' there, any way one looks at it.
