An Opportunity

From [Marc Abrams (2004.05.29.0657)]

I'm going to try one final time. The paper from Dr. Rodolfo Llinas in my
mind, provides an opportunity for PCT to align itself with the
neuroscientific community. I believe the work of Dr. Llinas is in the
spirit of PCT and he just might be able (meaning his work, not him
personally) help provide a viable physiological model for PCT, but it
can't, and won't happen without a bit of work. I'm a bit confused by the
lack of interest in this possibility.

If you feel I'm off base here I'd like to know why. I'm not trying to
'bait' anyone here. I'd welcome some perspectives on this possibility.

This is not one isolated paper. This man has done 25 years of research
in this area and his book, which I have recommended, _i of the vortex_,
sums up and generalizes his work. I think it's a good tight fit for PCT.


Considering how often throughout history even intelligent people have
been proved to be wrong, it is amazing that there are still people who
are convinced that the only reason anyone could possibly say something
different from what they believe is stupidity or dishonesty.

Being smart is what keeps some people from being intelligent.
