Keith, I used ' pad ' in the meaning of filling up, in the case thus of
it could mean conflict, or dispute, or debate, or discussion,....whatever.
get thus ' violence ' in all it meanings possible....opposite, contrast,
etc....where you get
dichotomious sides, whatever the meaning of those sides, you get ' violence
'. It is more a kind of metaphor_ it is a kind of dichotomious- derived metaphor. Is this clearer !?
