Here’s my original text from the thread:
““Before” means that the SIS must be firing with certain elements in place which then permit the Trait to be legally used. “After” means the Trait is simply activated more-or-less freely, thereby changing the SIS in a distinct fashion as part of its use.”

Seems to me like we’re in a phase of everyone saying it his or her own way, more-or-less to try it out.

I’m trying to find a nice way to say “Yeah, that’s where I started, Seth.” So, um, “yes, that’s a good way to put it,” or similar.

I’m currently speculating that most of the systems which use the Traits (as defined in the previous conversations) don’t offer much guide to this particular issue, so groups have effectively built their own methods of before/after on the ground. Very likely, they’ve even arrived at their own local language for the cut-off point between before and after.

Best, Ron
