So does it mean that if I say "increase proximity", it will mean "much more nearer" and "reduce proximity" means "less nearer"?

So this means that in the second statement, those who received a two-sided message will remain to have the changes from the first message? Also, does the "second message" introduced referring to the counterpropaganda in this context?

@Mitch Thanks. Then would the sentence "The sorting method used in the application is reminiscent of bubble sort." be correct?

Thanks! Resembles does tell that it has similarity but does it explicitly give the idea that bubble sort was bring to mind? I mean I know when we say it resembles something, automatically that something has to come into our mind before we resemble it but somehow this whole thing is kind of implicit. It's like reminisce on the other hand tells that "bring to mind" effect more obviously.

comment Usage of the word “natural” as a noun
@FumbleFingers Thanks, "expert" sounds almost similar, giving the idea that one has a high level of knowledge on an usage. But would expert also carry the notion of achieved through training or practising rather than born with?

@slim Thanks, I agree probably demonstrate is a better choice of verb than unfold.

Thanks! This is clever. You're right, it reads more easily as a noun this way.
