If some small group of folks who Love Neuroscience can work out a
room & board deal, I can work 'invisibly' - I mean, no one else has
to know you're 'associated' with me.

The best way to transfer NDT's understanding would be for me to audit
courses, and then immediately afterward, have a 'translation'
session, in which the day's classroom material would be reiterated
from NDT's perspective. There'd be no 'argument'. If you have a
question, ask it and I'll answer it - usually by diagramming the
underpinning stuff and 'animating' it - indicating the
directionalities of its inherent energy-flows.

You'll learn a lot of useful stuff, and I'm sure I will, too - in my
case, especially with respect to bridging between standard approaches
and NDT's stuff.

I Guarantee you'll do Joyous 'back flips' when you see what's
actually in NDT [beyond the 'basics' that I've been able to get
through(?) online.

To communicate the understanding is all I want to do - to fulfill my
Obligation to Science - to not Fail.

As I've tried to explain, in real-Life, I'm not like my online
'persona'. My way is to just do what needs to be done as
'unceremoniously' as I can - there's Freedom in such.

The only 'problem' is that, when the work is done, there's a need to
communicate it - and there's just no way that such can be done 'in

So I'm asking [begging] for the opportunity to =quietly= do the
communication - with some folks who'll enjoy seeing Neuroscience
through new eyes.

It's not a 'contract'. If you're not pleased with my performance, you
can give me the boot.

What is there to loose? I don't need much. I've lived this past year
on $5,000. Seems to be sufficient.

If you want me to comment on texts, etc. you'll have to provide them,
'cause that'll be above 'room & board' - and the problem, there. is I
write running commentaries in my books as I read [for me, it's an
'essential' method] - so the books look like 'war zones' when I'm
done with them - not re-marketable [unless someone is interested in
NDT from the perspective of the book].

It doesn't seem, to me, to be much to ask for.

| When I started out, the Longshoreman Philosopher, Eric Hoffer, was
| one of my Heroes. I knew that I was setting out on a 'dangerous'
| course by deciding to pursue an understanding of what was in the
| published literature on my own - that, perhaps, I'd never bring
| anything to fruition - but I'd been moved to "do something" by all
| the suffering and animosities that I saw all around, and although
| was hard giving up the simple dreams I'd had for myself home &
| Family - I could not not try.
| All along, Mr. Hoffer's example stuck with me as sort of a reserve
| hope - if all else failed, to get 'picked up' by some University,
| Mr. Hoffer was because, like him, through years of following
| stuff, I had a few things to say that were worth hearing.
| You know - a closet-sized office somewhere in the outer reaches of
| some campus.
| I never dreamed that a man could work, achieve some things, and
| folks'd never respond [or respond only negatively].
| I'll pay my way by doing Custodial work - scrub the hallways, paint
| the walls, service campus vehicles, mow your grass, shovel snow,
| leaves, wash dishes [and windows], move supplies, take care of your
| databases, networks, or programming, put books back on the shelves
| your Libraries, stock and tidy up your labs, be a dorm resident -
| anything that'll let me eat and have a roof, nearby your Library.
| Is there no place on the face of the planet where the work I've
| in Neuroscience will be received?
| You know - like Eric Hoffer's work was received - so that I can go
| back through my archives, and work in your Library, quiet as a
| to address every criticism that folks've stated.
| I just want to work more - to not fail to do what needs to be done.
| Is this 'impossible'?
| Or is AoK is a book that must be banned before it's even published?
