Dialogue is really aimed at going into the whole thought process and changing the way the thought process occurs collectively. We haven’t really paid much attention to thought as a process.

People avoid that, because they know that there’s going to be trouble and they skirt those questions. But if we sustain the dialogue it’s going to come up. The question is what happens then. We discussed previously that something can happen, if people will stay with it, which will change their whole attitude. At a certain moment we may have the insight that each one of us is doing the same thing – sticking to the absolute necessity of his idea – and that nothing can happen if we do that.

The temperature could go way up. In fact, there are people facing this problem in large corporations.
