Quantum effects in the brain

It's 'hilarious', and admittedly, not undeservedly so - you've come
into a discussion that;s been going on for going on two decades,
bringing up stuff that's been hammered on infinitum, and are
obviously, feeling rather 'smug' with respect to what you offer.

What can I say except that I can't say everything there is to say, or
even reiterate everything that I've posted in former msgs, in every
msg that I post.

But I also refuse to accept any 'argument' that's couched as yours
is. At least some of the previous discussions must be available by
doing groups-google [tm].

That failing, your post constitutes an instance that instantiates
that which your post describes.

So what :-]

I'm not arguing philosophical possibilities with respect to
infinities of infinities, each of which must be discussed
individually, and so all of which cannot be doscussed, so "Ha, ha",
in accord with the position you've presented, nothing at all can be

I've been discussing, these many years, how, given any stimulus set,
nervous systems process information, regardless.

And I reject your sophistry that's founded in nothing more than
large-numbers ["Golly-Gee!"] and buzz-words - no actual thought went
into it.

|No. Not at all. You omit the overdriven system aspects completely
