I've been enjoying the dynamic discussion. I think we're almost to
the same place. One can control one's interaction so as to facilitate
strange attraction. One focuses on keeping one's own and others'
motives in reciprocal movement. The process of so doing is an
art/science in itself. One can learn to move interaction into this
pattern.

Once in the pattern, the substance of reconciliation of conflict
strangely/magically/unforeseeably emerges from interaction.
Essentially, control rests on having everyone involved in the conflict
let go of attachment to unilateral substantive objectives. I refer to
attainment of this form of control (and hence abatement of
personal/collective disturbance) as "democratization" of interaction.
It is control by which strange attraction is allowed to happen.

Make sense? l&p hal (pepinsky@ucs.indiana.edu)
