Sorry, Dr. Norman, what you've posted, quoted
below, is B. S., and you should know that [by now].

And, beside, what you've said about my replying to
my own posts is contrary to the dynamics inherent
in =all= non-trivial 'memory'-center-of-mass shifts
[the dynamics of which I discussed in long-former
posts [involves glial function, and derives in then-
current globally-integrated 3-D energydynamics]].

So, I'll 'follow the energy-gradient' to there's Worth
in doing so, 'thank-you-very-much'.

Think about it, a bit.

How to you expect that New-stuff can be communicated
if the only one who knows it is 'silenced' by arbitrarily-
imposed 'rules'?

I'm working on behalf of folks who Suffer - folks upon
whom Neuroscience has 'turned-its-back'.

And you propose 'rules' that, if I adhered to them, would
have only the 'result' of me, also, turning my back upon

Have I, in the past, given you more Credit than is your Due?
