Chris, do you possess an academic background in neurophysiology/neuropsychology etc. ?

It's ok, as I posted else where recently, the forum is plenty fun without that particular joy of talking over a shared book. Actually, my use of the Zen and the Brain book recently has been far different - when my daughter wants to wake up early and do home work, I get up with her and sit reading a paper book to keep her company. Zen and the Brain has been that book. But, to treat your statement as an invitation: I will admit, I snuck ahead and read his enlightenment experiences - they are pretty in line with the ones in Three Pillars of Zen or Sit Down and Shut Up. The neurology struck me as old fashioned -it's macro-neurology, and now they are getting into the individual neurons a bit more, with DNA sequenced receptors and nano-electrodes. Still, the review of anatomy and such has been invigorating. --Chris On Tue, Oct 26, 2010 at 9:52 AM, ED <seacrofter...@... </group/Zen_Forum/post?postID=47KL0UiWmeqpRvw4AsXGWFZDs14m1gphZuDvhbhFSv\ Q8m-UGKN21vJronaySlitkKt6SUGwiMN60KtML8KRcz0Y> > wrote: > Chris, what stops you from initiating dialog on 'Zen and the Brain'?
