Here's what you said, dumbed down to my level:
"I have a notion about how minds work.
First we have imagination. Then we check our work.
What a trip!
Einstein asked that his brain not be dissected, but they did anyway. His brain had wiring that
helps explain his thinking ability.
I think your vision, Mike, is about your own brain or a general brain. I think you do not realize it, but you were thinking about yourself and your symbols have some universality.
Your own personality is the subject of your
'vision.' Because you are bilaterally symmetrical, you chose a lot of "two's" in your symbolism. It was all about what you are or wish you were-- especially your brain. The hemispheres of your brain long for self-recognition from one another. When you visualized the Earth, you were still thinking about yourself and what you wish you were."
Kyle, the dials were really dials. The longing for competence among my fellow humans is not self-adoration but a recognition of the pickle we're in. Folks don't seem to comprehend what truly causes things, but they throw their weight around a lot. If you remember, the completion of a wave of great cathedrals in Europe was followed by centuries of great plagues that wiped out roughly half the population...wasn't it several times? In fact, the two-- cathedrals and plague-- might not have been completely unrelated.
I wasn't talking voodoo. I was talking science.
Serenely for now,
