Agreed. Open and close loops consciously, so that you can preserve the reader’s resources for the loops that matter, not just tons of random, unconscious junk. At least then the reader will finish reading and not just give up. Also, a well written book, article, story, or explanation is made up of loops, as my diagram shows. I’m not a proponent of not opening loops. To not open loops would be to not create at all.
