also, =importantly=, the addition of the epicritic system transforms the 
older neural architecture... it doesn't just add to it... after the 
development of the epicritic system, the reticular system becomes an 
intimately-integrated "part" of the global system, and it'S (the 
reticular system's) contributions to the functioning of the global 
system are indispensible even with respect to the highest "levels" of 
CNS function... cognition... curiosity, creativity, volition, 
"conscience", etc...

...the reticular system is =not= just "the coelenterata within"... :-)
