Sorry - got to fix some typos.

| | quoted below] is that the implant

| | within 'normal' nervous systems.
| | This means that the implant's circuitry
| | will constitute a non-TD E/I-minimizable
| | 'dynamic' to the rest of the nervous
| | system, and the nervous system's inform-
| | ation-processing dynamics will, therefore,
| | be 'attracted' to TD E/I-minimizing these
| | non-TD E/I-minimizable dynamics - which
| | is why the implant will Dictate to the nervous
| | system in a way that transforms it into some-
| | thing other than a [Human ]Nervous System - which
| | is the wellspring of the information-proces-
| | sing deficits that the implant will introduce,
| | and which I wrote about in my prior post.

| Drugs do an analogous thing with respect
| to globally-integrated TD E/I-minimization.
| Their functionalities induce non-globally-
| TD E/I-minimizable conditions upon nervous
| system function and the nervous system's inform-
| ation-processing dynamics will, therefore,
| be 'attracted' to TD E/I-minimizing these
| non-TD E/I-minimizable dynamics - which
| is why the [Drugs] will Dictate to the nervous <<<<
| system in a way that transforms it into some-
| thing other than a Human Nervous System -
| which is the wellspring of the information-
| processing deficits that the [drugs] will <<<<
| introduce, and which I wrote about in my
| prior post.
| The instantiation of such non-TD E/I-mini-
| mizable conditions is what underpins the
| dynamics of "addiction", the Dictatorial
| nature of which is easily observed in the
| drug-seeking behavioral manifestations of
| folks who ab-use drugs.
| Because the drugs establish non-TD E/I-
| minimizable conditions, as an 'addicted'
| nervous system 'strives' to achieve TD E/I-mini-
| mization, the 'answer' that's converged upon
| always comes up, 'get the drug'.
| The drug ab-use has transformed the 'ad-
| icted nervous system into a non-Human
| nervous system that cares relatively-little
| about the generalized information proces-
| sing capabilities that are innate within non-
| drug-addicted nervous systems.
| [The analogous thing can also become
| established within nervous systems via
| extreme experiential conditions - as when
| an individual's Life is given over to the
| pursuit of a 'vendetta' - or the pursuit of
| 'redress' via, say, a suicidal act of terrorism.]

| So, 'two', with drug ab-use and extreme
| experiential conditions.
| The rest is 'to the wind'.

| Even when all of Humanity is virtually dictated-

| It's 'hilarious' - folks who can make a difference

| Pondering all of this, one is reminded of Jesus's

| 'rich' in 'power'.
| Impoverished in actuality.
| Unable to think a thought on behalf of those who
