I was talking to a friend about the "Meg thing," (see previous post), and he thought the whole thing was childish. To break up a band after an argument about Meg's drumming style... "They're acting like 8 year olds!"
I thought to myself, but didn't say, "No, you don't get it!"
Aesthetics. What is good. What is beautiful. A disagreement on fundamentals is the most intense and important kind of disagreement. It can be fatal to a group.
It helps if people are on the same wavelength - a shared vision, but, of course, differences can also feed the collaboration and make a group stronger. It depends, right?
But, no, not childish. Or not only childish, deeply important too.
