The Real World: Dollhouse

"If ... a set of generalist neurons could be programmed to express signal transduction machinery that normally is present only in specialized sensory cells, these neurons also might acquire the capacity to respond selectively to the adequate physical or chemical triggers. Not only could all members of a population of neurons then be addressed simultaneously, susceptibility to stimulation rather than the stimulus itself would be localized, and even diffusely broadcast stimuli could elicit precise, patterned responses."

populations of neurons. PNAS 100(3), 1352-1357

Whetha you wanna believe is up to you; however, when our body croaks, as we all will, our indelible soul rises to be Divinely Judged on whetha we have loved enough: loved God and loved our neighbor. Those R the two most important commandments. You still have time. Lookit 'MySoulAccomplishment' - an effusive, yummy story on the reality of love make'n in Heaven. God only gives bawls to those who see the need for humility. God blessa youse -Fr. Sarducci, ol SNL

Thank you for your kind words. However, your comment does not address my blog post at all, and quite frankly the post you told me to read is fucking vulgar as shit. Please refrain from posting out of context plugs for your dirty dirty god-prose in the future. Thanks for stopping by!
