"I've been there. Sometimes being highly functional masks the severity of its impact in context for a long time."

"But those very close know. Penetrating denial has patterns too."

"Of course and disruption is a given. The degree to which it is relevant is case dependent. Are you at all concerned?"

As many can attest, a discussion of this type could go on and on. High level systems tend to be less about fault avoidance and more about fault recovery. The bridge, detection.
