comment Why is Bil'am not surprised that his mule is talking to him?

@user613 true but mostly in summary form. the main excavation work for the underlying reasons is obviously in the talmud and commentaries

@user613 The main arena for deep rational inquiry is in the study of talmud because that is where the roots of halacha are from.

@user613 which means the debates of abaye and rava. its not two separate things as he continues "Even though the Sages referred to THESE..."
