I think Ken is just trying to work something out for himself, but using
a public forum as a notebook. I don't have the faintest idea what most
of his ideas refer to, and I suspect many have meaning only to him, but
I can't see the harm in it. It requires a peculiar kind of ego to take
personal offence at someone "doing what they do." I suggest that you
take the ten minutes required to figure out the use of killfiles if it
bothers you that much - or that perhaps you find something less trivial
to fret about.
I think Usenet can cope with the load of the approx. 2k of text that Ken
generates daily. Even though I don't think much of it is useful to
anyone other than Ken, I must say it's fascinating to see someone so
consumed by these ideas that they are motivated to work them over and
reformulate them on a daily basis. It's the same motivation that keeps
us turning up to the newsgroup, or for those of us lucky enough to work
in the field, turning up for work.

Don't push your opinion as "reality", thanks; you don't speak for me. I
would have thought that someone purporting to be interested in the brain
would have a little sympathy for someone else engaged in the struggle,
no matter how unconventional the approach.
As I said, figure out the use of a killfile, and enjoy the lack of Ken.
How gutless to make an ad hominem attack from an anonymous posting,
against someone whom I haven't seen making such attacks. As for me, I'm
with Voltaire on this one.
