This thread is turning out real good. Iv'e been thinking about several face to face conversations about politics and past events, and my observations are not theoretical, but experiential. During talking I noticed certain " gut feelings I got from the speakers presentation. That this was an evasion, or something they were sensitive about. I thought this was a form of N, because it came from nowhere. Also, much of the talk evoked imagery, which was taken to absurd funny levels in conversation. I thought one type of N, was sort of in stinctual, more of a feeling, but another was to take reality, and just overlay lots of imagery(like science fiction).I wonder if someone could clarify this.
