Even though the other current topic "Calculus of personal identity" has
the word "calculus" in it, I think it's an understandable and
interesting thread.  And you can also start a new thread.  For me, I'm
hoping to learn something, too, as long as Bruno lasts, and feels like
he's benefiting.  This current topic I think is just starting to really
get good, in my view.  Or it may evolve to the next level and be less
mathematical and more philosophical.  Or maybe someone smarter than I
am will pipe up and make it even more interesting.  Who knows what will
happen, but it's up to whoever wants to participate to make it happen.
My thoughts.
