You make it quite clear that you feel the developments of your mental image of the universe after you learned to read were significant compared to the development of your mental image of the universe prior to learning to walk. Thus you display exactly the bias I complained about when I said, "almost all intellectuals overestimate their ability to think things out on a conscious level to such a great extent as to be almost ludicrous. Secondly they, at the very same time, underestimate the abilities of their subconscious to create ideas (I would say to think) so much as to paint the idea as insignificant." This is an exact analysis of your response to my post.

I do not believe you have any concept of exactly how much you allow your mind to run the same way as your body runs. You underestimate the abilities of your subconscious so much as to paint the idea as insignificant.

Mike I am afraid that what I am talking about is simply beyond your comprehension.

Have fun -- Dick
