Would you apply the same logic to the over-1000 page Avatamsaka Sutra? Do you assume its authors didn't know what they were talking about because of the length of their explanation? Indeed, I chose a lengthy and thorough explanation, with numerous examples and analogies, precisely because dear Remmy asked for clarification. I could have easily given a single-paragraph response, but I was intending to help Remmy understand, not somehow prove to others with a short and pithy statement that "I" know what "I" am talking about.
I'm sorry if I upset you in some way. That was not my intent.
