comment How can I help my essay's readers “get into [my] mind a little more?”
It appears to me the body of this post does not contain a question, so it should be closed. Note, you may find Writers stackexchange useful, but there as here the posted question should state a question to be answered.

comment Idioms/phrases for “I won't get in the way?”
In this context, “You’ll have...” is slightly less presumptuous than “You have...”. The first of these is like “If you go ahead, you’ll have...”, and the other like “You're going ahead. You do have...”.

comment Is this a correct usage of the phrase “give way”?
Coffeenap, give way means “To yield to persistent persuasion”, “To collapse or break under physical stresses”, “To be followed, succeeded, or replaced by” etc. It does not mean to promote or to lead to something. The malformation “Libraries give way to thought” could mean that thought forces libraries to do something, or could mean that libraries go away and thought arrives. It does not mean that a library is conducive to thought.

comment Is this a correct usage of the phrase “give way”?
I regard that use ( “Libraries ... give way to thought” ) as incorrect if you mean they promote thought. It isn't poetic and it isn't appropriate.

comment What's the correct way to format a date range, time range, and days of week in a single line?
@ceving, see When "etc." is at the end of a phrase, do you place a period after it? and AM/PM vs a.m./p.m. vs am/pm,

comment Why do we write “Fourier's law” but “Soret effect”?
@JohnLawler, to see a minor exception to the “Possessives can't co-occur with articles” rule, type the donald's daughter into a google search box and pictures of Ivanka Trump and Tiffany Trump will appear.

comment What kind of rhetorical strategy is it when someone points out a potential sticking point in his proposition before anyone can criticize it?
@BlessedGeek, your “magnet to coagulate effectiveness” phrase is absurd.
