	I don't think it's so much difficulty, as a lack of definition of
terms (for us here, anyway).  I've asked Juan to clarify some things, but
unless I've missed a reply, he hasn't (I too, am `saving-up' his theses)

	It's my opinion that Juan, instead of engaging (more-or-less) in
a dialog of one, instead explain what exactly he means by a process of
_demonstrating_ the concepts he describes in the same process he uses to
describe them.

	Perhaps, Juan, you could concentrate on just one or two concepts
right now and somehow involve someone here in a discussion which
demonstrates the very concepts themselves in action...
