I hope everyone here will see what you've just said.

Yes, that's right. You need to introduce a context, if they are of any relevance. I know full well what the terms means and I see no relevance to the issues under discussin at all. After this is a PRACTICAL discussion, not an open university anatomy course. As I said, if you are frequently met with silence (as I suspect) when you introduce such terms to conversations without establishing context, that is because people are too embarrased to respond to such a transparent attempt at one-up-manship, not because they are overwhelmed by deference to somebody who has correcetly learned an unusal word.

One of the major benefits of mental practice is less noise from the afferent nerves. Is that context? I'm baffled here.

Well, at least it clarifies how to give ACCURATE explanations and understanding, when you have to deal with a complete imbecile. Fortunately, my students are far better at absorbing simple logical premises. Arguably I'm learning something by being forced to explain things in simple terms to an idiot. I wonder what kbk draws from this?

For what it's worth I just reported this post. Do you really think you can call people imbeciles and idiots?

And? Nobody ever argued against the benefits of mental practise. So what is your point? Why are you suddently introducing this? The whole discussion was about your nonsensical assertions about the nature of muscle memory and how it is supposedly harmful- coupled with your definable error in claiming the muscle-memory based method you started was based on avoiding muscle memory. So rather than admit to that, you choose to introduce a separate issue about anatomy, without explanation or context, or supportive evidence? And you wonder why whole rooms of people often go silent when you start to speak at parties?

Yeah, when they give extremely flawed advice that goes in the face of all logic to other posters (not to mention openly admitting to deliberately acting like a fool so as to spoil any hope of a proper discussion) I think that it would be criminal not to. I'll run back and report a selection of your own posts.

Frankly, if I was the moderator, I'd have banned you from this forum a long time ago. You openly admit to using it to wind people up, rather than as place to engage in serious discussions? Small wonder that so many people have sent me private messages to thank me for countering the persistent bilge and condescending manner that you perpetually employ. Various posters have told me that they just avoid making posts, rather than subject themselves to your sarcastic responses. This forum would be a far richer place without you. I select the word idiot, after extremely willful thought, not as a knee-jerk reaction.
