I hope you will show us those texts soon, as I respect your point of view (although I may not always agree with it).

That's such a fun theory. Funfunfun. Not practical in my mind, but fun.
Can we hope for a story on this topic, then?

About the ,,longest response'' thing... what can I say? You should see my essays
About the answer... like I said before, different people have different points of view. And your right, some people (including me, I admit) tend to skip some things and not see something that catches the attention of others. But we may never know what the writer wanted to say with some lines, unless we ask him/her themselves. In the meantime, we can guess and give clues and our points of view. I don't think anyone should get angry when others give their response to someone's line or question and it's not exactly what they expected or wanted to hear.
"Manuscripts don't burn", Woland, ''The Master and Margarita''

From the Weyr and from the Bowl
Bronze and Brown and Blue and Green,
Rise the dragonmen of Pern,
Aloft, on wing, seen, then unseen.
Dragonman avoid excess
Greed will bring the Weyr distress;
To the ancient Laws adhere,
Prospers thus the Dragon-weyr.
