With that in mind, the issue up for discussion is, does pain assist in the learning process or doesn't it.
That's like asking "Is water useful?" It's a nonsense question, because there is no absolute answer: it's always dependent on the situation. Define the situation and you can arrive at an answer; refuse to define the situation, and it's just mental masturbation.
