Why so quiet?

Children have a very clean unadulterated mode of argument.

There is a fine line between complexity and chaos... Maybe that is why we should always head the words of simple minds...

- Aunt, are you a girl or a woman?
- A Woman
- And, can you have children?
- Yes, but I don't want to right now
- Oh

This dialog with a child reveals an Aristotelian handling of logic. It also reveals how easily accepted new information becomes incorporated as truth.
