The article was insightful.
The 'framing' part reminded me of a joke that I want to share with you.

A guy, addicted to smoking, went to a monk and asked whether he could smoke while thinking about God. The monk gave him a cold look and vehemently rejected the idea. Our guy said sorry and wandered in that area. In a corner under a tree he saw a guy sitting around and smoking while he appeared to be praying to God as well! Curious and a bit disappointed, he went to the guy and inquired him about this. "How come you are smoking while praying? That monk did not like that suggestion when I asked his permission!?".
The replay was: "Well, I told him that I am a chain smoker, and asked whether it is okay to think about God while smoking?".
