"The Terrible times".

Up until the 'time' when Dad died, I was working
hard for the same reason, with respect to him.

Since he died, I've still been working, but it's
been 'different'. I haven't thought much about it,
but know it is. I'm sort of a problem-solving
'machine' - no 'emotion' left. Just Determined to
grind through anything that remains needing to
be ground through. Just Determined that I'll not
Abandon the Children.

I'm getting into all of this [again] because it's
the only way in which I can hope to get across
to folks what went into the effort.

It was arduous.

It'll probably be the case that no one will com-
prehend what I'm saying, in this post, but it's
just not possible to recreate all the work I did
online. There were thousands of studies
involved.

It's why I've always offered to Demonstrate
by doing this sort of analysis with respect to
any non-trivial article selected from the Neuro-
science stacks.

I can do it with respect to any article, because
I already did.

But folks've 'thought' I was 'just Lying'?

Try doing something, Choice-optional, that
comes close to Killing you.

Then see how =you= feel when folks treat
you as if you're 'Lying'.

I expect you'll see what I mean when I
say that I get 'pissed-off'.

These things must be spoken in the light-of-day.

Science is Better than what I've witnessed of
'science', and I want for no one else to =ever=
have to go through what I've been through.

[So, having already absorbed the 'costs', I'm
Free to address all of this Forthrightly.]

Anyway, it's simple, but arduous, to cross-correlate
the data from studies that were done independently -
because they all occur within the IFR [which is
roughly the same as what's referred to, in AoK, as
the "special topological homeomorphism of [...]
nervous systems", but is more Geometrically-ideal-
ized.

"... no good thing has been, or can be enjoyed
by us, without having first  cost labor."  [Abraham Lincoln]

I Agree.
