I take this comment to be somewhat supportive of the theme that the
"tickness" of the 'music' is (more) in the individual than in the
stream of information received. This perspective could be understood
as drawing together a number of recent threads and creating a context
for these (often contradictory) positions, and can be taken as an
opening up rather than a closing down of the discussions.
