“ I'm so happy to have met fellow 'thinkers,' who manage not to be repressed in their dialog, but still respectful and sincere (and in fact witty, insightful, oh I could go on) in discussion. I'm still musing over our conversation. ”

“ (2) While it was gratifying to see so many people interested in serious conversation, when a group reaches a certain size it becomes unwieldy and makes conversation difficult. It’s been said that the best conversations take place between two people; it’s long been said that “two’s company, three’s a crowd,” though obviously good conversations can take place among three or four or five or six or seven people; but somewhere in the teens, it becomes a “free for all” where people must compete for “the floor,” it’s hard to get a word in, and the voluble dominate while the soft-spoken recede into the background. In another discussion group I once belonged to, somewhere in the teens, the group leader broke it into two subgroups. That probably wouldn’t be a good idea here. But the other thing that could be done is to go around the circle and let each person comment in turn, instead of making people jockey to be heard. If the group remains this large, I would at least give that a try. ”
