I think this is actually the point--calculations of expected future experiences based on now being in the neighborhood of D (which result in "torment") should instead be calculated based on now being in the neighborhood of the transition from C->U, as D and U are indistinguishable. Calculating expectation on this basis results in much better anticipated outcomes, according to the paper. > Given that very minimal change in the brain seems to be able to send someone > in the "amnesic arithmetical heaven", as illustrated by some drugs The changes you note may be minimal in the macro sense (small delta concentrations of receptor ligands in the synaptic cleft), but result in profoundly different trajectories of firing patterns at the systemic level.
