Yes, you're right.  It is being studied piecemeal by professional 
neuroscientists, psychologists, physicists, and the like.  But there are 
more appropriate newsgroups which are dedicated to *consciousness* 
studies.  That's where this discussion belongs.  

That was my point.

In the same vein, if I wanted to read about Alex Keaton, then I'd read
alt.fan.keaton.alex, or if I wanted to read about scrabble, I'd read
rec.games.scrabble, and if I want to read about consciousness, I'd look to
some other more appropriate group than this one. 

Cross-posting to this group in the hope of finding someone who is 
interested in this stuff serves no purpose whatsoever.
