    Hi Robin Faichney -

    Yeah, I totally am with you on the not-understanding front, but, hmmm,
    treating things as being more useful than not is only a handy tool
    towards understanding, not a property of what is being studied,

    Certainly the structure's structure is informative....

    But I'm totally with Joe when he says one needs an entity that is being
    informed, and, I can't see any other entity being informed than, well,
    homo sapiens sapiens.

    And it's sometimes dangerous sharing jargons, or to settle with what is
