Is it possible for something to be truly neutral? I made the trip from the encyclopedia to see what his word meant. It seems as though the term which is addressed in #6 below ends up being part of an Oximoron. Is not a point of view a perspective from which a person observes something? How can a person understand something without processing it?

Look at the new definition I added. This one is from a different point of view. CORNELIUSSEON 19:10, 15 June 2006 (UTC)
As a nounEdit
I suck at wiktionary so I won't add it, but it can also be used as a noun to mean someone who is neutral. I've only heard this used to describe footballsoccer fans who don't particularly have a favorite team but instead watch for the quality of the game. Recury 20:56, 11 December 2006 (UTC)
I was always taught that neutral is based on the Latin `ne uter' (none of both). Is neutralis really a Latin word? --22.214.171.124 05:45, 11 December 2008 (UTC)
