mircea_popescu: the ~other~ explanation, however, might well be that i don't write on topics about which they're trained to think they have an oppinion. it's easy to forget the parameciums are not actually people, and to imagine human process impels them ; this isn't however the case, they just go where they were trained to go and do what they were trained to do, no more.
