Iím not trying to make you angry Ö Iím just pointing out an apparent lack of continuity in your thought process.
You apparently didn't read my posts.

Cirling approach, downwind, runway behind you, poor weather:
You can't fly (aviate) the aircraft looking out the window, because you may have nothing but a black windscreen a head of you. Hence, you are forced to fly on your ADI.

Visual approach, anywhere one the approach, runway might not even be visible (shallow fog, behind next mountain etc.), good inflight visibility, terrain features recognizable (airport up that valley, behind the next mountain):

Cosmo Kramer:
I think most of us would agree that a visual approach is flow looking out the window, with the only necessary working instrument being the airspeed indicator.
