Honest, I posted my last reply [in the raphe nuc thread[ before I
read your response to my query.

| No.
| 1. Your literary style is incomprehensible. That is your principle
| and in spite of constant criticism in that regard you refuse to
address that
| issue.
| 2. Your ignorance of neuroendocrinology and immunology leaves you
with a
| hopelessly constrained view. You need to do much more work in that
| The phrase "immune privileged" is hopelessly misleading and in part
| why until the last few years research has tended to focus
exclusively on
| neuron function and dysfunction. While the wider research community
is now
| making great strides in overcoming these information deficits your
| perspective is very much atavistic and demonstrates a failure to
| abreast of latest developments and insights. Instead of spending so
| time posting you are well advised to use the internet to obtain the
| literature in order to catch up. I NEVER go to libraries,
everything I have
| learned neuro wise has been through the internet, admittedly it
| sometime to find the relevant sources, but they are there and I
thank the
| many researchers and journal publishers who have their work
available to the
| wider community.
| 3. Australia is the last place you would find an audience because
| are cynical and one thing we do loathe is those who proffer 'big
| explanations. Hence we don't get caught up in the ideological
madness that
| all too often creates so much bloodshed and hatred in the world.
This is one
| of our great strengths, we'll gladly listen to those offering good
| and insights but always casting a cynical eye towards those who say
| have the 'answer to everything' yet cannot offer a practical
solution to the
| problems right in front of our noses. You must desist from this, "I
| explain it all" business because that completely destroys your
| 4.
| Instead of ramming AoK down peoples' throats demonstrate your
ability by
| addressing smaller issues and seeking publication for the same. AoK
| worth
| two knobs of goatshit because it is incomprehensible (I read it
years ago)
| and it emanates from a terribly constrained pov. Your insistence
| everything can be explained by AoK has never been 'verified' or
proven and
| never will be until you learn the simple lesson my sister told me
long ago,
| "If you can't explain yourself clearly so your listener can
| then don't bother."
| 5. Forget about humanity and its fate. We're just Risen Apes after
| Forget about the stupid war, it is but a pebble in the mountain of
| suffering which grows everyday. Forget about caring for humanity,
| about Neuroscience, remember Tolstoy, "Everyone wants to change the
| but no-one wants to change himself." Otherwise you run the risk of
| deathbed lament, "Only one man understood me, and he got it wrong."
| however, was for the most part a gibberish merchant, he didn't
deserve to be
| understood because he expected everyone to adjust to his style of
| communication.
| 6. Best of luck in finding other accommodation and getting things
| out.
| Change your approach,
| John H.
