Although I disagree with your third paragraph, and regard the second as unclear or misguided, the first seems true.

@EdwinAshworth, your first comment's example seems perfectly clear. It doesn't need rephrasing, although perhaps calls for an explanation of why the man took the dog's pocket watch.

comment What's a common phrase that means “To put it simply though not 100% correctly”?
I've never heard of subscripted L's being used in that manner. On the other hand, superscripted L's like L¹ and L² are well-known and widely-used references to p-norms and Lᵖ spaces, with L¹ representing Manhattan measures and L² representing Euclidean measures.

“This wording is impossible to misunderstand” is incorrect; I'm perfectly capable of misunderstanding the wording you give, several different ways, none of which coincide with my understanding of the scenario in the question.

comment that ideas which our minds cannot reconcile are mutually destructive, sillier still
The latter half of the last paragraph (your parenthesis) is consistent with the quoted bit, but the first half looks irrelevant to it. This part of the quote seems to say it is still more silly to think that if ideas are inconsistent with each other then they destroy each other.
