| One reason could be that it is so because the great majority of scientifically
| interested people have an uneasy premonition - whether they are aware of
| it or not - that if they poke around too much with the workings of 'mind'
| they won't like what might not like they might find.


| Or, to put it more bluntly, and with a certain 'extended primal theoretical'
| bias:
| What their own "_not_ cognitively aware consciousness conveys" (to
| this majority of menschen) is that if they study the brain (implicitly their
| own) they will encounter the unsettling fact (that tend to undermine
| certain hopes and illusions) that it stores, and incorporates mechanisms
| for "AEVASIVE (my jargon) handling of,  "primal pain" (Janov's jargon).

There's a hint of an energy-flow,
inside me, that I interpret as "in-
dicating" that I'm finally beginning
to get what you've been saying
all along, Peter.

I'm Grateful for the Work you

Cheers, ken [k. p. collins]
