there's a straight-forward route to understanding of immune system function as
'cognition' that should be traveled first.

eat 'rotten' food-type -> get 'sick' -> acquired 'aversion' to food-type

-> sleep deprivation -> 'forgetting' and non-discernment -> eat food-type ->
get 'sick'

the thing that discloses the 'cognitive' base is the correalted, and
underpinning, relative randomness of neural activation during "sleep-deprived
'states'".

wire-up volunteers, analyze the EEG, see the relative randomness.

then, after this first step, explore everything at increased levels of detail,
maintaining correlations to the degree of relative-randomness.

everything correlated is part of the 'cognitive' super-set.

one cannot go at it without this 'lynch-pin' stuff.
