Back in 1997, there was a mailing list called awaken, started around Julie's old Awaken site, which attracted some rather interesting characters. One of them is named bRYEnd Prosser and his writing style... is interesting. Here's a typical example, try wrapping your brain around it...
Subject: Re: World Brain workshop + RE-deferring Consciousness as evolutionary.
>In June 1997 Kristina started this..
K>>I would invite an equal mix of physicists, biologists, computer scientists, K>>systems people, visionaries, and anyone else interested in the behavior of K>>complex (let's define that as interacting multicomponent) systems. OK, K>>maybe I will let one librarian in, but just one.

(^>I'm interested in your "book". Here's why.
(^>I got this from someone whose child "MAY" have minimal autism. (^> Since I happen to be genetically linked to this dilemma, (^> I started a journey of gonzo-journalistic (^> research into hypothetically creating a de/re-scrambler/re-encoder (^> for the linguistically confused...

A1>> I found an interesting, um, "book". It has some ideas interesting to me, A1>> they might to you. It talks about different ways of learning, how memory A1>> works, how our school systems do many things backward. It starts at A1>> http://www.ils.nwu.edu/~e_for_e/
A1>>It hints at reasons someone might want to do SOME of the things you A1>>have talked about. It is in hypertext, and constructed in a way that A1>>no two people are likely to read it in the same order, but it still A1>>makes sense.

(^> The Eudora Pro , version 2.1.2, is the Spell Checker I'm using. (^> The ramifications of setting the options to : always suggest, (^> and leaving ALL other options turned off, and always hitting ignore , (^> is that of unzipping alternative meanings to what I type.

In some cases, the ambiguity leaves the (^> 'yiewsers' staring themselves in the face.. but, he11. (^> we'll just close our eyes, then, won't we? (^> Go back to living in the "REAL" world, Where everything bad is from the (^> outside. I wont believe that. Could and have, but won't for now. (^> We just fool ourselves into thinking politeness is honorable, (^> even if it covers seething rage at our own impudent ' imputtance '.
