Thank you for the long and detailed explanation, but I'm afraid that I
have very little understanding of what you're trying to say. Insofar as

Again, you're obviously free to believe whatever you want and act in
accordance with your beliefs, but if you want to persuade others,
you'll need to be a good deal clearer.
