If and when the answers I receive are sometimes confused and unsatisfying, then I probably need to learn to speak a more appropriate language when I put questions to reality. Similarly, ellipses are rarely used throughout narrative, but can be helpful when a character's train of thought trails off, or when there's a long pause from the speaker. To be certain, we come to the dialogue as a Buddhist, as a Christian, as a Marxist, etc. In keeping with using natural speech patterns, people don't provide every detail when talking to each other.
