I just did a Google, and found:
American Basic Science Club:
If this San Antonia, TX Company is not
still in-Business, it should be started-up,
again, as a National Educational Priority.
Every Child should have the Opportunity
to Explore Science that this Company's
=Excellent= approach made-Possible.
Folks who want to see the wellsprings of
both Neuroscientific Duality Theory and
Tapered Harmony - you know - 'the
data' - will find it's 'seed-crystal' stuff
in this Company's Efforts on behalf of
'Course, a 'seed-crystal' needs a 'super-
saturated solution', and it's up to Parents
to give such to their Children with respect
to the doing of Science.
Seeing the old ad at this web site brought
back a =rush= of memories :-]
I earned the money to pay for my kits
by peddaling Newspapers.
I still have most of the materials, if they
will help folks who are interested in start-
ing-up the Company again.
Of course they'd have to be brought up
to date. The kits used vacuume tupes, etc.,
but their empahsis of the Basics was exceed-
ingly-Beautiful, as was the way they treated
the Child-Experimenter as Equal-to-the-Task
I'd wait for each month's kit 'with baited breath' :-]
Wheatstone Bridge - there were numerous links.
Here are two:
Don't try to understand nervous system
function without, first, understanding the
Wheatstone Bridge [and Analog Computers].
I didn't search on the latter, but presume
there's a wealth of information available on the
net. I got everything I needed from the Am-
erican Basic Science Club Kits :-]
Of course, because the neural Topology is
inherently 3-D dynamic, the nervous system's
implimentation of 'the analogue computer' is
extremely-very-much-more than "an analog
computer". Folks've speculated about "digital-
analog hyprids", but what nervous systems
are is 3-D-dynamically-tunable analog com-
puters, and to see this, one has to get a firm
grasp on the stuff that is discussed in the
Googled post to which I referred in the prior
msg, which is linked-to, above.
I thought all of this was Obvious to everyone.
An Error of 'presumption' on my part.
I forgot that my Childhood experience wasn't
everyone's Childhood experience.
It's 'funny' - folks just didn't understand "Wheat-
Oh well, Learn them 'now'.
Learn how analog computers calculate.
Then 'bridge' to the 3-D-dynamic neural
"TD E/I-minimization" is =just= the analog-
computer-like Calculation that occurs within
the 3-D =dynamic= neural Topology.
WDB2T is the 'hitching-post' that Determines
all Calculations that occur within the 3-D-
dynamic neural Topology.
It's Simple, and it's Fun-to-understand.
