R Hansen asks (satirically): >Ok, so I am thinking of a picture involving a sine wave and an ellipse. Shouldn't it answer your original problem as well?
Your reduction doesn't fly. I said I sought a picture illuminating the relationships among some specific quantities. That's a different thought, than thinking of a sequential argument, or chain of reasoning etc.
Hey, if you don't see it, you don't. Sorry.
But don't pretend I said think of any happy picture and all will be revealed to you. Nobody who reads this will buy that.
