The Challenge remains.
Someone, Please, select an Experimental result
[replicable, Formally-Published, preferably with
respect to the functional Neuroanatomy, and pref-
erably from =Nature Neuroscience] with which to
put NDT to the Test.
I'll Research it's stuff all the way back to 1970,
be Forthright with respect to what I find, and will,
then, show folks what's not in the Paper that's
been in NDT all along.
NDT can do this with any Replicable Experimental
Result, because the TD E/I-minimization Principle
has =Generalized= applicability with respect to ner-
vous system function.
Then, after this's Accomplished, we can, =Together=,
Lift Humanity Up out of the self-Destructiveness
in which it has 'existed' since the Beginning.
I Understand that this seems to 'be too-much', but
folks won't see that, rather than 'being too-much',
all that's Necessary to =BEGIN= is already Done, un-
less they take their best-shots at Disproving NDT.
This Goal =needs= an Explicit Challenge in-Experi-
I can go to the Library and select Papers, ad infin-
itum, and folks'll just say that, "He selected pa-
pers that he knew would sustain his position." [I
refer anyone who 'doubts' such, to all of the Ex-
perimental results that're Cited in AoK -- there
are =thousands= -- all of Carpenter and Sutin is
Cited. All of Kandel is Cited. All of Nieuwenhuys
is Cited. Etc., yet, despite all of those Experi-
mental results, everybody 'thinks' I'm 'analogiz-
ing' with respect to the TD E/I-minimization Prin-
ciple? See what I mean? So the Challenge has to
come from other-than-me. No matter what I do, folks
just 'ho-hum' it.]
So the Challenge has to come from the Community of
Neuroscientists, and it has to be Public - nothing
that can just be 'swept-under-the-rug' if folks,
on either 'side' of the Challenge, "don't like" the
NDT's stuff need's someone who's Willing to 'invest'
themselves in the Challenge -- so they'll stand-and-
'fight' -- in-Detail, "until the dust settles".
