Hi everyone!

Mike Perry seems to have come upon a scheme similar to the one I
suggested. This is probably because our messages cross in the email ---
I'm not suggesting imitation. But if 2 people suggest it, it may have

The idea of treating Cryonet like a newspaper is also a good one ---
though I will add that newspapers also put articles of particular kinds
in standard locations. This helps readers who aren't interested in sport
find out about cars, for instance.

Finally, for Bob Ettinger, I will point out that PERIASTRON, to which
you subscribe, has already had several discussions, with sources, of
current neuroscientific ideas about consciousness. I most certainly agree
that feeling is necessary, but even now we may be able to be much more
precise than his ideas suggest. It's still true, though, that lots more
work needs doing here.

			Best and long long life,

				Thomas Donaldson
