ME + me: Very brief reference to very much



I continue being not well and this is just a very short piece to register that all my posts to the Phoenix Forums are now on my site, albeit it in need of some better editing:

Incidentally, this constitutes the effort of 17 days of work (and 4 MB of texts spread over 380 files) for it was not easy with my presently lousy health.


P.S. More on the reasons for why I gave myself this considerable pain and trouble tomorrow, I presume

     insufficient evidence

7. A space- and computer-scientist takes a look at psychology.
8. Malcolm Hooper puts things together status 2010.

"Ah me! alas, pain, pain ever, forever!

No change, no pause, no hope! Yet I endure.
I ask the Earth, have not the mountains felt?
I ask yon Heaven, the all-beholding Sun,
Has it not seen? The Sea, in storm or calm,
Heaven's ever-changing Shadow, spread below,
Have its deaf waves not heard my agony?
Ah me! alas, pain, pain ever, forever!
"
     - (Shelley, "Prometheus Unbound") 

    "It was from this time that I developed my way of judging the Chinese by dividing them into two kinds: one humane and one not. "

Note

(*) Personally - from a true surfeit of evidence - I do not like academical lectures at all, and rarely saw or heard a good one. Apart from that I read much faster than people can talk, while talking as a rule is much less considered carefully than written prose, however fastly composed.

For these reasons, videos and lectures are not for me, but that is most probably a somewhat personal idiosyncracy: I MUCH rather and MUCH easier and MUCH faster as well read than listen to real or would be scientific lecturing.

Also, I do not assure people I d not know at all that they are People Like Me, nor do I write legalese like the people who say they are People Like You, for other people may not be like me at all, in quite a few relevant ways, and indeed other people may not like to be like me - e.g. including ME - at all, indeed just as I feel about some people I could name.
