No, but I don't follow. He had different experiences, inescapably. Do you think that means he feels less understanding of Miles?

Do you have textev for that? It may be so, but I don't see it. I see his problematic love for his wife as significant to him; he may have avoided entanglement with women somewhat after that, but I would think the relationship with Ges was just as problematic. When he talks about his past, it seems that in his mid-twenties his main relationship was with alcohol.
