Yes, what has happened in Yugoslavia was avoidable.
No, it has nothing to do with anything Ken Collins said or didn't say,
did or didn't do.
No, no one in Neuroscience is "afraid" of anything Ken Collins
says--just afraid he'll say it in this newsgroup and drive serious
readers/writers away. (For example, I am a card-carrying member of
Society for Neuroscience, and I am not afraid of his "theories" or his
"pedictions" or whatever; and no, I am not dependent on government
grants nor private industry grants).
On my first aquaintence with your writing, the mixture of sense and
nonsense you posted about decussation, it seemed you simply needed some
clarification and/or correction about some of your misconceptions; but
you eventually proved to be incorrigible and on a very private trip,
unable to communicate your ideas clearly (neither the bizarre nor the
mundane ones). This in itself is adequate to account for your failure
to win acceptance in the scientific community.
