i can explain the 'prepared-mind' stuff. what i can't explain, like i
can't explain how it could be that Jesus Taught from an obvious
Understanding of how nervous systems process information, is how the
stuff i needed was always just-sitting-there at the 'time' i

there're a lot of examples in AoK. i'll point out a couple.

The Elazar and Adey ref, "Spectral Analysis of Low Frequency
Components in the Electrical Activity of the Hippocampus During
Learning", Electroencephalography and Clinical Neurophysiology,
Amsterdam, 1967, Vol. 23, pp 225-240, is a case in-'point'.

I'd probably done a card-catalogue search on "hippocampus", and that
directed me to the ref., [probably along with dozens of others,
because, since trips to the Library were expensive [because i'd
usually have quit my job in order to devote myself to
information-gathering in the Library, and synthesis at home, Library
trips  still are expensive these days, only moreso, because i've been
unemployed for so long] but it was this ref. that gut me 'unstuck'
with respect "Internal Frame of Reference". what caught my attention,
as i worked through the day's selection of refs., was =one= diagram
in the article [a photocopy of which is included in the paper copy of
AoK, Ap3 - "ramp-architecture, "weathervane"]. Something akin to an
internal-shout of, "There it is!", happened :-)

i've not checked for the ref in other Libraries, and, perhaps, i
should [to see if it can be found in =any= university Library], but
it was there [either at a UMass, Amherst, Library, or at the UConn
Medical School Library, when i was there, needing its stuff, and it's
stuff was "Big-Bang" stuff within the development of the concept of
the IFR, and NDT, in general, because the IFR is what
'knits-together' all of the 'mirrors' of the supersystem's "special
topological homeomorphism" [AoK, "Short Paper", Ap3, 5, 6, 7.]

then there was the Chronister, Sikes, and White, Jr. ref. "The
Septo-hippocampal System: Significance of the Subiculum", in The
Septal Nuclei, 1974, p 123, diagrams, in which, [also photo-copied in
the paper version of AoK, Ap5] constitute experimentally-verified
'snapshots' of TD E/I-minimization. This ref's stuff triggered the
development of NDT's concepts of "topologically-distributed
ratchet-pawling", and "whittling".

what's 'hilarious' is that i purchased my copy of the volume
containing the ref. at a non-Science-focused bookstore. it was out on
a table on the sidewalk in front of the bookstore ["Huntington's",
Hartford, CT - it's no longer there], in the midst of hundreds of
other 'trash' books, just as i happened to be walking by, which i did
only relatively-rarely.

all the Scientific American refs. in AoK [`26], were the same sort of
thing, especially, "Thinking about the Brain", by F. Crick, in the
Sept., 1979 issue, which triggered the reification of "Information
Calculus", AoK, Ap6. and it was so, in a multiply-faceted way, with
respect to folks other than 'me', because SciAm refs were available
in local Libraries across the land.

i can explain the 'prepared-mind' stuff. what i can't explain is how
the stuff i needed was always just-sitting-there at the 'time' i




I won't argue such with folks.

But, if it's so, then i'm one extremely-'lucky' guy, 'cause it's
routinely like-this in my experience.

if it's 'luck', then why haven't i won the lottery? :-)
