I smiled when I read your series of posts.
All "break-throughs" happen because
someone dares to "reach" as you have
Doing so creates a "problem" that can,
then, be explored in all of its specifics.
So, in the spirit of your daring-to-reach,
I'll joiny you by assisting in the necessary
First, everything you've proposed is already
being explored in Cancer and in recombinant-
DNA Research, and in many other, less-well-

This "dosification" is problematical -- because,
once the dynamics of uncontrolled replication
are launched, they are self-sustaining.
After the triggering of "wild" replication, one can

Without completely-reified Science, the "cure"
you propose will only accelerate their disease
And "age" is not a factor that can be invoked
with respect to making such decisions. [I'm

would separate me from that..]

Thalidomide, and things like it, are already
being explored as you propose, but "halucin-
igens" act in rather-different, being highly-
specific with respect to gating stuff to con-

This's better than tumor-generating stuff,
but it's still Problematical because nerv-
ous systems ["the brain"] are extraordin-

what you propose would also have to
be tuned with respect to that extreme
Nervous systems are Wonder-filled --
they are so Capable -- be-cause they
"know" how to "tune" themselves with
respect to this extreme-dynamicism that
occurs within them, and which is funda-
mental to all that they are. So intervening
within this extreme-dynamicism is hard
to do, and Dangerous to do. [For folks
who have AoK, see Ap9 discussion of
