I agree with you that set theory done right could help explain
consciousness. But like you, I don't know if I have the ability, time, or

I do appreciate the notes. I still need time to digest them, then I will
get back to you on them. Maybe this would be a good collaboration for us.

I will do better than that, Colin. If you ever want to spend a weekend
losing money in Reno, shoot me an email and I will buy you a beer at the
local pub. :-)
