Point. I'm extrapolating. As it stands, I'm going off of intuition
and trying to find the most aesthetically pleasing system. Consider
this my hypothesis and I'll either prove it or disprove it (and,
hopefully, others will, too) in the comming decades, centuries, or
however long it takes to find enough evidence. Just as physicists
can't accelerate heavy particles as of yet, I can't know about other
minds and mindish things, but that isn't going to stop me from making
guesses at what such things are like.
