When more than 2 converse…

When more than two converse we introduce an opportunity for reflection. There are then two persons in the room for every body, so that with three people there are 6 persons: one ostensibly talking or listening and one reflecting. As a consequence there are at least this many possible interactions: A to A’; A to B; A to B’; A to C; to C’; B to B’; B to C; B to C’; A’ to B; to B’; to C; to C’; B’ to C; to C’; C to C’: 15 in total. When 3 persons converse, they don’t each walk away with three ideas, but possibly as many as 15; more if you allow that ideas interact among themselves once they leave our mouths.
