With regards to "Feel free to demonstrate publicly that **I** don't have a clue if I have misunderstood or misjudged", thank you, but I will pass on that... I do not feel it is important for me to publicly demonstrate the fact that someone does not know as much about the area of **my** primary interest as **I** do, instead, I would rather teach them... There are others that do a great job at this kind of "public demonstration":-).

I think you should wait a bit before doing any more lattice demonstrations. That approach completely obscures the source of hte values from 'x' and 'z' groups. Using y ~ x+z would be much more informative (as advised by Duncan MacKay
