    It seems that you misunderstood me. I would like that some of the things
    which are not discussed , but which are at the bottom of one's beliefs,
    were discussed more and better. However, I do think that it will be
    difficult, since some of the particip[ants in the discussions do not
    realize, that part of their life stays out of the other part of their
    life. That is a situation which I do not understand, but I realize it will
    take a lot of study for them to see it, and fo us (others) to show it.
