Well, that explains the involvment of yourself and _other_
whack-jobs 'n nut-balls like Richard Hall, J. Vallee,  McDonald,
Haines, Sturrock et sig al. <LOL>

But seriously. That very needless information void begs to be
filled with something, even if it is crap. It seems to remain
culture, those who officiate it at any rate, are liable for the
vastness of the void on this issue and a strange producer of the
crap contrived to fill that void understandably abhorred, eh?

Culture's Science (so _not_ science really) is in default, too
proud to provide even small acknowledgement, if any. The
scurrilous bastards... really.

For my part? I'll stand with you crackpots, you're more fun and
smell better and sometimes even a propitiously better art, you
know? <g>Consider, I suspect science is only _good_ when it is
art... besides being a tool and servant. Terence McKenna thought
so.

Culture is not your friend. all over the world and for a period
of many years, that's been my experience, too.
