I am certainly very supportive of Polly's ideas. Although we have in the past
tended to talk in terms of self versus non-self descrimination it is perfectly
obvious that there is a lot of non-self that we fail to react to. I find it
much easier to try and think of the immune system as attempting to tell
harmful from non-harmful.
