Hi Peter - I see we're up on the board 'concurrently', which reminds
me of a 'poem':
The coffee's good, the waitress is sweet.
In fact, she's really quite 'neat'.
What's more, there's good will in the air.
Talk flows with its electric, but vacuumous flaire.
People unknowingly sishing others well,
By willingly listening to as much as they tell.
[Written during the 'Terrible Times', in Denny's, Chicopee, MA,
counter seat #14 - the waitress was Gorgeous, and kind - she'd, keep
my cup filled all night, and slip me a free piece of carrot cake
every once in a while :-]

It's all explained in AoK, Peter. 'Zero TD E/I cannot be 'minimized',
so 'death' isn't TD E/I-minimization. Life is a prerequisite of TD
Think of a salmon swiming up the current to spawn. What the fish does
doesn't 'dictate' what the river does. The fish must deal with the
river in order to seek its goal.
Same-old, same-old with nervous system and the WDB2T energy-flow.
When the fish attains its goal, it Dies.
But Humans aren't fish.
We're 'engineered' in a much-more-robustly-adaptable way with respect
to the Universal energy-flow - WDB2T.
We don't have to Die for sex :-]
We only have to Die when we can no longer contribute to groupwise
I ain't there yet, so I'll continue 'swimming' up the WDB2T
energy-gradient until I end up like the unfed monkeys :-]
Cheers, Peter, ken
