| | Ken,
| | Yes. But please, also consider how this simple and conservative
| | neuropsychoanatomical view of the brain might serve (if not
| as a
| | *complementary* explanation of the fact that highly selective
| | unconsciousness and simultanous "putting" of CURSES can be
| by SHITS
| | if "gates" (quickly shut by GABA and far more tenaciously _kept_
| shut by
| | involvement of endogenous opiate-like neuromodulators) that block
| | SHITS-specific distress and/or flight-fight motivating signals
| need to
| | affect energizing (or back-ground tone and awakeness maintaining)
| | neurons".

I Confess, I only =presume= to 'understand', through my long-enduring
interaction with Peter here in b.n, what "'SHITS' and 'CURSES'"
actually constitute, if anything, beyond the contexts of Peter's
The "it' in my saying, "It's Proven" is the "special topological
homeomorphism" that embodies the foundation for TD E/I-minimization
within mammalian nervous systems. The Proof is given in AoK, Ap3.
It's ramifications are discussed in the rest of AoK, and, ad nauseum,
in my discussions here in b.n.

| Truth is, we are not so 'bound'.
| Truth is, we 'choose' to abdicate Choice - abdicate Free Will -
| 'choose' the same-old
| that 'led' the cave dwellers - that 'leads' a puppy brought home to
| this house, and not to "the yellow house down the street", to
| 'territorial' [Prejudiced] with respect to the former, but not with
| respect to the latter, as a result of the fact that, while maturing
| into its Adulthood, it has merely experienced the stuff of the
| former, and not experienced the stuff of the latter.
| So, like the dog, we 'bark' in the 'night' of our existences,
| 'blindly' and automatically oblivious to why it is that we do so
| 'bark' - 'blindly' and automatically oblivious to the Savagery and
| Wastefulness inherent.
| And, then, we 'teach' our Children to 'bark', like us, lest in
| finding a better way, they cause us to 'suffer' "rendering
| [AoK, Ap7 & 8] TD E/I(up) - 'oblivious' to the fact that the
| 'rendering useless' of that which Ravages us is inherent in
| transcendance of its Savagery.
| There is no greater Tragedy than this - it's the wellspring of
| inhumanity to man" - the wellspring of 'hatred' - the wellspring of
| Prejudice - the wellspring of every war that's ever been fought -
| wellspring of all Aggression - the wellspring of the Ignorance
| through which we slay our own Hope.
| Go figure.
| I shall Choose the other way - the way of understanding - the way
| Science - the way of that 'moves toward' Truth - while there's Life
| in me.
| Cheers, Peter, ken
