Right! The deal here is that we are finally approaching the
"subjective" areas of the universe, instead of the "objective" ones...
we are imposing on the field normally left to religion and spirituality,
the gyoto monks etc.

I don't know how well we will fare, trying to make it *into* an
objective science. Perhaps, like psycology, we can get *somewhere*,
even if it's not what we had originally hoped...
