I should add, that I used to get snippy with Ken, thinking I had
something to prove by disagreeing with him, but in the end I realised
that we were arguing from different principles, and so I decided to
accept that his views are valid in his frame of reference, as I believe
mine are in my frame of reference, and that he deserves the same respect
as any other person interested in these questions.
I only get angry with people who try to obtain money or power from
others - and I don't think Ken's in it for the money, he's in it because
he can't help but be interested in the brain, just like I can't. We
don't have much of use to add to each other's arguments, but I respect
his motivation and his honesty. His ideas are not mainstream science,
but unlike Richard Dawkins I'm fine with others having a dissenting way
of seeing things!
