Re: [xmca] Fwd: Larry's response to Mike and Mabel on the place of emotions in situated perspectives

I am sympathetic to this way of thinking as you can imagine, Larry.
But there are bits of structure in all the flow of attunement which, to some
are disruptive, to some extent, enabling, The words in the attunement which
goes in
in friendly and more or less concensual conversation would be examples. So
of the task is to figure out the granularity of the analysis that bring to
view a particular
form of attunement, or a real disruption.

Which is why, for example, many including Stern use slow motion at times, or
turn off the sound
on a video, or.......  lots of techniques for getting at these issues.
