So you've distinguished that that's what I'm doing and discarded it?

Are you not yourself here disparaging the view of someone whose understanding differs from your preferred model, and would your own definition not therefore render your comment "Level 2" also?

I just want to point out that Brodie is often guilty of a sin he condemns, the "distinguish and discard" strategy. How many times have you seen him say "that is a level 2 idea, and does not work at level 3"?
