When I initially wrote my response, I was in agreement. However, as I wrote it, I saw how most of those concepts easily fall within the MC or IC throughlines.
In short, I don’t know. Nothing exists in a vacuum and bleed over from the OST, MCT, and ICT is expected.
There are certain things that I think would be helpful.
- steadfast or change (Together forever! vs Nothing lasts forever!)
- critical flaw and a unique ability (We always argue! vs We make people feel good!)
- problem (People expect us to be perfect!)
- consequences, costs, and dividends (sad, no freedom, great sex)
I will say, it is interesting that the RS is defined as an objective view when one component of it is subjective (MC) and the other is objective (IC). In my opinion, it can’t quite be objective. It is Yin and Yang.
As the audience, we feel it (MC), see someone feel it (IC), and understand it (RS).
But the way it is written in multiple articles, it isn’t supposed to be subjective. I’ll probably end up using it in a subjective manner though.
I just quoted my own unpublished response. Sigh.
