    Oh come on Chris, who do you think you are kidding?

    That's just nonsense. Dendrites are input, axons are output.

    And as for this:

    >Instincts get encoded into dendrite areas etc (and so post synaptic) and
    >allow for context to PUSH the life form and so conserve energy.

    What can I say? If anybody knew where instincts were encoded, they'd be in Stockholm picking up their Nobel Prize.

    Grumpy (but justifably so) Derek
