The article allows me to remain logically (as well as intuitively) confident 
that my bet - that I have correctly (or not altogether wrongly or inEPTly) 
concluded that the basal ganglia contains one of the most central and 
important "actention module switching stations" (within a  sufficiently 
evolved/brainy neuromuscular animal's Actention Selection Serving System") - 
is a safe one.

It also allow me to keep thinking that I have a philosophically finalized 
Foremost Overview Of Truth that is well placed. %}
