Re: Int. Vs. Ext - resisting a push

I think these two threads "internal Vs. Ext- resisting a push" and "resisting a push part. 2" are discussing the same thing, resisting a push. That is I am calling 'area 1 there is no reason not to combine those'. However there is now a "floating" thread, which addresses 'area 2', I think we need that distinction.

I think that you're making a case for using definition 1.
Others are using definition 2 perhaps?
