Thanks for our response.  I took LSD three times during a couple of
months around 1979, because I wanted the experience.  I spent months
reading all the available literature before deciding to do so.  It was
a very valuable experience, but not something I would do
recreationally, because I wouldn't want to take further risks with
scrambling the connections in my brain.

You seem like a friendly addition to the list, and willing to learn. 
I like that.

That helps me understand your AKA post, but I think Samantha was not
referring to you.

I do think your analogy was truly way off.  Maybe we can discuss it

I like unconventional, and this list is certainly unconventional.

I wonder, is there something about the French language that breeds
pseudo-scientific and postmodernist thought?  I'm not sure it applies
to French Canadian, though.  <smile>

Anna, I'll try to reply to your post about Einstein, gravity and
radiation.  Perhaps some of this discussion we could have offlist if
it becomes too lengthy.

I would not ask anyone to keep quiet, as long as they seem to be truly
seeking growth.
