I've already said what I think about this. It's encouraging to hear someone
else ask the question rather than slam, once again, my (extremely
speculative) answer. I would recommend that anyone who offers his/her own
answers do so with a clear awareness of how much abuse s/he is likely to
take for advancing an opinion.

In Memoriam, Dr. Cynthia Horner and Jerry Garcia


Is it a fact - or have I dreamt it - that, by means of electricity, the
world of matter has become a great nerve, vibrating thousands of miles in a
breathless point of time? Rather, the round globe is a vast head, a brain,
instinct with intelligence!

--Nathanial Hawthorne, Preface to The House of 7 Gables
