Well thanks Russell. Note that I was not doing a critic. I have the  
usual problem with the word "philosophy", which in many places (on the  
continent means just "marxism" or the more ("postmodern") relativism.  
But here I was mainly "complaining" that sometimes people talk like if  
I was proposing some new theory or vision, like some honest pholosopher  
can do.
I am more modest than that, or ... less modest perhaps.  I just take  
seriously a very old "theory" (mechanism) and try to explain the  
consequences: the testable breakdown of materialism.

Best Regards,
