I already have, several times in this News Group, and a c'zillion times
elsewhere. "AoK" is an acronym for the title of my monograph, _On The
Automation of Knowing within Central Nervous Systems; A Brief Introduction
to [Neuroscientific] Duality Theory_, 1986, 1988, which is a refined
version of _Why, Human Behavior_, 1980, which builds on prior papers, all
addressing the Same-Stuff (including an Economics paper, that flat-out
predicted the current international financial dynamics, and for which I got
a C+ :-) dating back to 1971. The work can be traces back to my Junior year
of High School, when I learned that I'd not be able to attend college
because there was no $... started working on "Why" that year... warms my
Heart that folks've made it to Wye, just the other week.

I've a hypertext version of AoK that runs under Windows/DOS (354k DL;
compressed, self-extracting "book" of about 114 single-spaced pages) that I
send folks who want to have a look at the fundamentals of NDT. I'll gladly
send it to you, if you want to receive it. To grasp its stuff, though,
requires additional reading in the refs cited in AoK. My view on research
papers is that they should report only that which is unavailable elsewhere,
celebrating the work done by others by referencing it. Thus, AoK is an
"outline" that one may follow to Unification within Neuroscience... the new
stuff it discusses are the integrating links that knit together the work
done by the Neuroanatomists and Neuroscience Experimentalists as of the
writing. Folks've told me AoK is "hard-going"... it's just that the work
cited in the refs must be dealt with.

This was well enough sorted out in the existing neuralglia studies. A lot
of neuralglia work has been done since AoK was (self-) published, but I've
not kept up with it... I'd like very-much to do so, but I've been required
to use all the time available to me to just hold my foot in the door on
behalf of NDT's stuff.

A big factor in neuralglia dynamics is K+, upon which all action potentials
depend... steer K+ concentration, and capacity for action potential
manifestation is also steered... imagine a flexible "bladder" that's
studded with "nozzles"... distort the "bladder" and the "nozzles" become
spatially-displaced... if the "nozzles" distribute K+, then the spatial
displacement of the "nozzles" will action-potential dynamics... this'll
tune "memory" accordingly. This's exactly what the verified neuralglia
contractile properties do in vivo. ken collins
