Define "situation of interest."    (02)

Have you never been in a situation in which saying nothing said a 
great deal, and to say something would have been most inappropriate? 
For example, when  teenage children are in a certain state of mind, 
remaining silent is the best way to make perfectly clear to them how 
inappropriate their behavior is.  TELLING them this -- or saying 
anything, for that matter -- turns the parent into the bad guy and 
entrenches them in feelings of self-righteousnes.  Disciplining 
oneself to stay silent makes point very effectively, sometimes even 
to the point of an unprompted apology when things have calmed down.    (03)

I understand that this situation could be described at a meta-level 
using English or Common Logic, but my point is that a communication 
is being made with no use of English, and that using English would 
desrtroy the communication.    (04)

There are also times when one utters a sentence meaning its opposite.    (05)

Then there is music, and metaphor, and fantasy, and so on and so on...    (06)
