No, Ceoli. Actually it is meant to be honest from the mind of a Mono "wired" person.

Of course it doesn't to you...you are not mono wired.

What one mind reads as a guide to enable you to realize something, the other mind interprets it as a potential threat. It's really quite simple that two people can interpret the same stimulus differently.

If a punch is thrown at the average person on the street it is usually seen as a pretty threatening thing that elicits a defensive response.

If a punch is thrown at a trained fighter it is viewed as a stimulus that elicits an offensive response.

Same thing..different interpretation of what it means and how to deal with it.

Easy peasy

No sarcasm
