Suppose I've asked a question on this site, and one of the answers has been so helpful that not only did it answer the question, but has also helped me gain greater understanding and clarity as to:
- What I was precisely asking in the first place
- What was the essence of the confusion/misunderstanding that led to me asking the question
- What perspective and realizations best help (me) dispel said confusion
But all of the above new-found understandings and perspectives regarding the question aren't explicitly stated in the answer, but rather were a result of thoughts inspired by the answer making everything 'click'.
What would be an appropriate method, if at all, to share these new-found realizations?
Should I edit my original question? Comment on the helpful answer? Accept the answer but also add one of my own elaborating on all of the above?
