I'm not at theory yet. My preferred conjectures, to be tested, would
need progress in the application of science to spiritual phenomena.


Translating what I found in biology over to CIS metaphor:
From what I read about the GABA-keyed memory-suppression system in
the hippocampus, and related systems nearby, I have no way to determine
from the research whether they are looking at the biological analog of the
hard-drive surface, or the hard-drive controller.


Even something like the 'remote-point chi-sensor' would
be a major breakthrough. Elementary calibration would proceed as follows:
Angular speed dependency: +[1/(2*pi)]*(angular speed in radians/sec).
Background readings:
Air "at room temperature, next to sensor": 0 [reference value;
results from average angular speed of air molecules. This drops off with
distance, first-order effects from angular speed decrease.]
Direct sunlight illuminating volume: +~3
Matter: Low atomic weight +~2
High atomic weight +~1
Mass chemical reactions: *running* car engine +~7 or 8
smoker [sorry!]: ~6
young, healthy person: ~9 or 10
Electrical currents: incandescent light bulb: ~2
computer chip: ~6

Obviously, one thing the sensor would do is put the decimal points on all
of the ~ numbers.
