Bravo John! Well said. This is my first post, but I've been
reading for a few years now. I've noticed a negativity in the
group as of late and am positive that nothing good can come from
it. Let's try to focus a bit more on the positive, and get back
on the path.

The brain is by far the most complexly organized piece of matter
we know. It is enormously more complicated in structure than a
star is, for instance, which is why astronomers know so much
about stars, and psychologists know so little about brains.
