Improving our understanding of the matter, and the implications of proposed solutions. The idea is to find out what drawbacks other people see in your proposal and change your proposal to avoid those drawbacks; likewise, when other people come up with proposals, they're supposed to find out what problems you think their's causes, and work to fix that. Once the problem is understood fully, and we've found a solution that either doesn't have drawbacks, or a number of solutions where we can properly understand the tradeoffs amongst them and can't find any way to avoid having to make them, we're in a position to make an informed choice.
