How can you label each question you raised as the same issue since they are clearly separate issues of inquiry? I think on the surface they look like the same issue (and all sneakers look alike), but as these issues are examined closely there is a great deal of difference between amoeba perceptual reactions and human cognitive skills. Humans are benefited by having many combined attributes of mental abilities (shortterm/longterm memory, depth perception, facial recognition, etc. etc.), but each of these abilities are hardly recognizable in primitive lifeforms (if at all). When discussing basic questions of knowledge (e.g., encoding of knowledge) we have to ask what lifeform, when, which 'knowledge' attribute are we inquiring about, etc). I don't see this issue as one grand question that we title 'abstract' as if this will put us a step closer to answering such an ambiguous question. I'm sorry, but I you to be more specific and concentrated on specific issues that you have raised. It's too difficult to answer a million questions with one general answer. In my opinion, that's not the kind of problem we are addressing.

Warm regards, Harv
