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

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.
