Guess what, Don, I completely agree with you. BTW, I too
studied the brain during my own Ph.D. program, especially the new
chaos model of the brain. The idea here folks is that the brain is
largely responsible for our waking state consciousness, or how
consciousness functions in the waking (physical) state. Without
a healthy brain, we have no normal waking state consciousness.
