but i've not yet adequately address what is the heart of the "functional
multiplexing" problem as it's discussed in AoK, Ap9.
same stuff, different loci, different function.
so putting one thing in-there, in a generalized way, has differential local
one might be 'good', while, simultaneously, others might be 'bad'.
the solution seems to depend upon 'hitching a ride' on the stuff that
in my view, that's a Hard Problem because it's activation-dependent.
what about the adult stem cell differentiation work?
can the factors that're used to precipitate adult stem cell differentiation
then, can these 'packages' be maintained-as-functional while being
'attached' to chemical factors, in a way that preserves the functionality of
the chemical factors?
if so, then, in such, there's a way through the "functional multiplexing"
at least outside the nervous system.
it's not so straight-forward within the nervous system because what
constitutes 'activation' is so dynamic.
still, everything within the IFR has its 'location', despite the dynamicism.
seems like one would have to follow ontogeny... a 'curved-path', itself.
[the inverse thing is that this's probably why ontogeny does follow a
'curved-path' - differential physiological dynamics along it's unfolding,
requires a sequenced-series of stuff, rather than anything steady-'state' -
which points back to my previous post on this topic, quoted below.
so the sequenced-series, 'curved-path' stuff is Solid.
eventually, it will all be do-able. at what cost to those treated? i mean,
will they have to lay in bed, immobilized, stuffed with needles, for months?
