| | Well of course theres an inbetween state,
| | the question is, does it have any function
| | activity. There most peopple would say no,
| | I'm guessing you would say yes?
| I say, "Never guess", but you lucked-out :-]
| When I said, "the overall Continuity, which
| is in the 'in-between' stuff", I was emphasiz-
| ing that the overall ionic conductance within
| the brain, in its mocroscopic flowing is
| continuously-tuned in a way that's depend-
| ent on the actuality of the 'in-between' stuff,
| but, of course, so is it dependent upon 100%
| of the ionic-gate repetoir.
| I've discussed the essence of this view
| repeatedly in the past, in particular, with
| respect to intermediate-term 'tuning' via
| ionic distributions which involve glia
| conductances, with respect to which glial
| contractile motility [Cited in AoK] actually
| 'adjusts' the microscopic structure of the
| neural Topology - sort of like a Wonder-
| ously-functional 'active-hydraulics sponge'.
| This literally 'adjusts' synaptic relationships
| so that the neural Topology can be 'tuned'
| with respect to whole 'classes' of 'memories'.
| These are the dynamics that I associate
| with instances of this or that being 'on the
| tip of one's tongue', but which cannot be
| recalled until some 'time' later.
| During the intervening 'time' the dynamics,
| above, are unfolding - under the ionic-
| conductance 'pressure' that the initial
| brain-'sprain' :-]  - the TD E/I(up) that 'not
| being able to remember' this or that in-
| stantiated within the "supersystem" [and
| which usually has easily-observed 'body-
| language' correlations].
| As the TD E/I(up) is "whittled" by the TD E/I-
| minimization mechanisms, the ionic conduct-
| ances are such that the glial 'hydraulics'
| occur as above, and when this has proceded
| sufficiently, one "remembers" that which was,
| formerly 'out of reach' - 'on the tip of one's
| tongue'.
| These dynamics have Wonderous advantages
| with respect to 'memory' classification, which is
| important within selective-attention [prevents
| inadvertant 'cross-talk' which would manifest as
| 'nonsense' behavior'] and economy-of-storage.
| With respect to the latter, these dynamics multi-
| plex available synaptic functionality, and, thereby
| greatly-expand overall 'memory' capacity, which,
| as far as I've been able to discern, is 'infinite' [I've
| found no 'limit' in my own experience. I keep
| cramming stuff in-there, expecting to detect a
| limit, but the only thing I detect is an inverse thing -
| the more I cram in-there, the capacity seems to
| 'expand' even more - FWIW].
| So, with respect to your query, the 'in-between'
| stuff [including the refractory periods that Kim
| discussed] 'carries' the overall Continuous ionic
| flow through all this, entering into the fine-tuning of
| the glial 'hydraulics'.
| If the Continuity is lost, to the degree that it is, the
| "supersystm's" functionality decreases - the
| fine-tuning capabilities deteriorate commensur-
| ately - which is probably some of what underpins
| the 'memory' deficits that accrue with aging [which
| needs to be Explored experimentally because
| there might be something that Medicine can do
| to help-out.]
| 'Course, none of what's here is comprehensible
| to folks who don't have a good grasp on NDT's
| fundamentals, but I Hope there are some who'll
| read this that do, and who'll be able to Compre-
| hend what's discussed here. It's in the "90%" that
| I'm always 'whining' about still needing to be
| discussed. I've 'refrained' with respect to such
| because it 'runs' a bit ahead of what's in the
| Literature, and, although I want to discuss it, I've
| refrained be-cause folks tend to 'fly off the
| handle', and I've wanted not to 'jeopardize' NDT's
| Fundamental stuff, which most folks are still
| 'glomming-on-to.]
| So, to the original poster, this's why I said, "do not
| quote it"  - especially not on an Exam :-]
| NDT goes-on-forever like this.

The dynamics that I've discussed, above, were
Reified between 1974 and 1976 [to put the
"90%" into perspective].
