Beside this. I just think about this : Why aren't we blind ? :-) If the "measure" of an OM come from the information complexity of it, it seems that an OM of a blind person need less information content because there is no complex description of the outside world available to the blind observer. So as they are less complex, they must have an higher "measure" ... but I'm not blind, so as a lot of people on earth... Quentin
