Hello Tilt and Retro,

I really don't understand the pictures - what they are and what they mean - and I'm sure I can't be the only one. Could you explain, please, what they are and the significance of them in this thread (seriously)?

Judging from definition one, and its subsections, we really do not want a retort.

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.
