Hi, HTC,

A question: how do you tell when a person is faking awareness/sentience ?

Once upon a time (1977) bill was doing a post-grad fellowship at the NIMH's famous mental hospital, St. Elizabeth's.

In a staff meeting where a patient was being evaluated in terms of danger to the community if released ... one staff member said with conviction: "he's acting sanr to fool us."

Constraints on my health and time (how dare my body get old !) have meant rationing my CP time, no longer soaking up the latest/greatest really innovative probes of space-time boundaries by folks like you, and Marc Clifton. To savor the technical excellence of OriginalGriff, Richard McCutchen, Richard Deeming.

No longer time for the daily struggle to teach newbies to learn what the docs would tell them ... if they looked, if they knew how to look.

Well. as Heraclitus said: "panta rhei"
«The mind is not a vessel to be filled but a fire to be kindled» Plutarch
