I should add, that I used to get snippy with Ken, thinking I had 
something to prove by disagreeing with him, but in the end I realised 
that we were arguing from different principles, and so I decided to 
accept that his views are valid in his frame of reference, as I believe 
mine are in my frame of reference, and that he deserves the same respect 
as any other person interested in these questions.

I only get angry with people who try to obtain money or power from 
others - and I don't think Ken's in it for the money, he's in it because 
he can't help but be interested in the brain, just like I can't.  We 
don't have much of use to add to each other's arguments, but I respect 
his motivation and his honesty.  His ideas are not mainstream science, 
but unlike Richard Dawkins I'm fine with others having a dissenting way 
of seeing things!
