Hi Chris,

I stand on what I posted.

It is. I've done exactly that. One just has to
undo the 'compoundedness' of "capacitor",
so one can see the energydynamics in their

This's not-True.

When I speak of "rewriting all of Science",
I'm referring to analogous 'events' that have
been episodically-occuring, but routine, within
the History of Science.

I'm not saying that it's 'easy'. It isn't, which is
why it only occurs episodically.

The way it always happens is that accumulated
evidence 'outlines' stuff with which established
Theory cannot cope.

To overcome this 'difficulty', the Theorist, looks
at the evidence in new ways, gains a toe-hold,
and follows its lead.

In my own work, the Problem with which est-
ablished Theory could not cope was with respect
to folks Killing one another for 'reasons' that
have no basis in any absolute external experiential

I got a 'toe-hold', "TD E/I-minimization" within
"decussation", and followed-it-through.

The 'funny' thing is that, as I've been discussing
online for more than 15 'years', my 'toe-hold'
stuff is applicable to =all= of physical reality.

Therefore, there's no way around to rewrite
=all= of Science.

It's just what needs to be done.

It's =Hard= when Obligation with respect to
such falls to one.

But, if one is up to the task, one just does it.

I am, I do - taking my 'lumps' with what re-
mains of my ability to 'smile'.

I'm Sorry. I've been working =beyond= anything
that's been discussed all along.

I stand on what I've posted.

The problem, here, is that b.n is the only 'place'
in which I can do the work I do.

It's not a 'problem' with respect to relative
'levels' of understanding [and, BTW, I expect
that there's no 'worry' with respect to "confus[ing]
the OP"], it doesn't matter. Folks who can't
understand the stuff I discuss just 'flip-it-off' [like
a light switch]. Sometimes, they 'vent' [literally,
"vent" the excess TD E/I that what I've discussed
has induced within their nervous systems].

Then "the dust settles", and the Science has been

All of this is just in the way that nervous systems
process information.

Former Learning is embodied in formerly-created
"biological mass", which has commensurate "be-
havioral inertia", and which, therefore, cannot just
be 'wished-away'. It's physically-real stuff, that was
constructed at considerable energy-consumption
cost, which energy-consumption cost constitutes
a 'measure' of the 'unliklihood' that individuals will
be able to rapidly 'convert' [after T. S. Kuhn] to
the positions I discuss.

So, one who understands how nervous systems
process information, takes this stuff 'on the chin',
and does what needs to be done, 'regardless'.

It's not for the faint-of-heart.

I Agree.

It's just that there's =never= a 'time' and place for
doing the merely-'unfamiliar' thing that just Needs
to be done.

So, one has to make the 'time' and place.

I'm not 'worried' about others' abilities to cope.
[Although there's no end to the 'amusement' inherent.]

It's as above. There's =never= a 'time' and place
that does not 'move away from' that which is

So, one just has to do-it.

I understand your 'point'. It's just that, in the midst of
wrestling with the specifics of Experiment, the 'big-
picture' must also be addressed - so that Experiment
receives guidance with respect to what remains needing-

It's been my commonplace experience
since a Child.

I've always seen what exists-beyond, and share it with
folks. Until I understood what was going on, it used to
'drive my teachers nuts'. Then, when I understood what
was going on, I just went 'dark', still continuing to see-
beyond, but not 'driving my teachers nuts'.

But, Obligation arose. Folks'll Suffer and Die if I don't

So I do.

It's routinely the case that I get 'beat-up' for doing so,
but it's also routinely been the case that, "after the dust
has settled", folks comprehend, and follow, the Leads
I've given them.

What's 'hilarious' is that, even though the Gift, inherent,
is routinely Substantial, making Substantial differences,
for the better, within folks' experiences, no one has ever
acknowledged receiving the Gifts :-]

I just get 'beat-up', and, then, see my work Published
in others' names :-]

"Oh well."

But I do understand the position you've expressed.

Thank You for reaching out to me.

Cheers, Chris, ken [k. p. collins]
