The hippocampus is =not= a 'spatial' map

Hi Matthew.

All I do is cut through the B.S.

And, then, it's 'hilarious', folks who
write like you say I should 'borrow' my
work, and get Published.

If the way I post is 'inscrutible', then
why have so many 'professionals' been
'borrowing' it?

:-|

I explained why I post the way I do
in a reply to NMF, recently.

The 'meta-point' that I'm always
discussing is how 'raunchy' 'peer
review' actually is.

It's sort of a 'joke' I'm playing on
the status quo in 'science' - that one
can adtually Do-Science, and the
only result of that is an ever-accum-
ulating mountain of shit... er, Plagerism.

I'm 'wondering' how long it'll take folks
to get-it.

My Purpose is =Serious=, despite the
fact that I've chosen to 'have-fun' while
doing what needs to be done. [Only be-
cause, if I didn't, what I have to do would
have left me devastated, long ago.

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