Hi, Daniel and all, old friends and new--

I like your carriage, horse, and riders image. It's concreteness describes the
way I perceive MoQ-described interactions in general.

I don't want to respond rationally, but intuitively.

"The one who knows the relation between the forces of Nature and actions, sees
how some forces of nature work upon other forces of nature, becomes not their
slave."--Bhagavad Gita

What is born of flesh is flesh and what is born of spirit is spirit. Do not be
amazed that I told you, 'You must be born from above. ' The wind blows where it
wills, and you can hear the sound it makes, but you do not know where it comes
from or where it goes; so it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit."--John
