This is in defence of Terri Egan .... John, I find
your remarks rather dismissive, sarcastic even, and
therefore offensive since I am a member of the mailing
list. The questioner wished, I understand,
to have a discussion on Edelman's model of
consciousness, and of course I realise that you have
no wish to traverse the ground, however, there is no
need to be so patronizing..... 

As far as my knowledge of "consciousness theories"
goes, I have some idea of the NC correlates by Crick
and Koch, which I find reasonable enough and no other,
and would like to understand, a little further the
"befuddled" ideas of Edelman, if anyone cares to put
their objective views on it.
