...wait-a-minute, I can domuch better than that... the "engram" is distributed... and the
distributed engram can, even now, be specified =exactly= ...this exactness exists in the
neural activation "state" =convergence= dynamics... which always coincide with TD E/I
minimization as I've discussed it in prior msgs...
...good grief! I fell into the falsehood of speaking of a "specifically-localized"
("non-distributed") memory trace... no such thing exists...
...so I retract my agreement with Colleen, and revert to the (verifiably-correct) position
I'd discussed in a prior msg... K. P. COllins
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.
