Again, I think you are misinterpreting, intentionally or by the lack of willingness (or ability) to follow focus of others.
Often, you seem to do it so that resulting conclusion fits your desired perspective.
(Last time, you wanted to think that I was "apologizing".
2. If you knew what you were talking about, you'd provide a simple example.
I did. You failed to understand, though.
And knowing about what we are talking about and providing example isn't necessary related.
I think your reasoning is faulty, here.
3. If you want to use wishful thinking as your example, then use the term properly; it's to take something to be true because you want it to be true, roughly.
I think you do that, often.
Read your replies to me and you might be able to see.
But "wishful thinking" itself isn't the example.
You are not doing wishful thinking if you take something to be true because it is true. Which is why, if you knew what you were talking about, you would know that I haven't offered you an example.
I think you are doing wishful thinking, again, here.
Moreover, I certainly haven't assumed that what I'm saying is absolute, pragmatic, and universal (which is what your example requires).
I am a river.
I'll repeat until you get it. In another thread we repeated 5 or 6 times before you understood one thing.
So, you may understand this, if I repeat a few times more.
Focus on the sense of certainty.
Unless you don't focus on it, you won't understand.
And you've "certainty" assumed many things you were saying with high degree of certainty.
