Hi, Jerry, 


I agree. And promise to try to do this better.

  Hi Diego:

  I propose that one begin by identifying and then ordering all 
  of the levels of abstraction associated with the subject. This
  requires, as a prerequisite, that one has a clear idea of 
  exactly what the subject is that you wish to explain.

  Then fill in that 'outline'  enough so that one is more clear
  which questions/issues are answered at each level of 

  Then, always being clear which level of abstraction you are
  dealing with, discuss the subject systematically from the
  most abstract to the most concrete necessary level of 
  abstraction.  It might be possible (and, indeed, I think it is 
  permissible) to have an order of exposition which 
  doesn't follow quite the same order provided one has already 
  worked out analytically all of the inter-connections. But,
  for purposes of dialogue, it is less confusing to proceed 
  in the above order.

  In solidarity, Jerry
