Discursive means...?

I wonder why my stash links aren't working?  It means: 

adjective 1. passing aimlessly from one subject to another; digressive; rambling.

2. proceeding by reasoning or argument rather than intuition.

Origin: 1590–1600;  < Medieval Latin discursīvus.  See discourse, -ive

There's a bug we're fixing.

1 and 2 seem like the opposite of each other.


Yes, I thought they seemed like opposites too!
