BTW, the view that the hippocampus functions as a 
"supersystem configuration governor" was first established 
in work I did in the late 70s and circulated via letters, 
self-published papers, telephone calls, visits, and 
conference participation.

All of my work is documented. If anyone wishes to contest 
my contention that the currently-popular view of 
hippocampal function was established in my "unpublished" 
work, please speak right up. Let's clarify this matter.

I'd not trouble folks with this sort of thing, but my work 
is being used all over the place, and I'm here on the 
verge of destitution. "The workman is worth his wage." I'm 
not looking for handouts, but if the work I've done has 
made the useful differences that it demonstrably has made, 
then why is it that I've been ostracized like some ogre?

People hate because they fear, and they fear because
they do not understand, and they do not understand 
because hating is less work than understanding.
