The TROM book states:

when two beings, at different ends of a
communication line, adopt (1) and (3) or (2) and (4)
respectively, both their self-determined and pan-determined
postulates match perfectly, and understanding occurs. (They
are in communication)

I see how (1) and (3) could lead to communication and understanding. But how do (2) and (4) do that? The way to make sure someone does not know something is to not communicate it.

Not communicating to someone who does not want to recieve a communication is good communication.
Not playing music loud when a house mate has been up all night working and needs sleep is a good communication.
