    Hi Scott Chase -

    Well, yeah- because he was more saying that Hubbard wrung this term
    'engram' in his own fury of neologistic psychosis.

    But then, clams will be clams.

    >>>'Morphic resonance' (MR) is put forth as if it were an empirical term,
    >>>but it is no more empirical than 'engram', L. Ron Hubbard's term for the
    >>>source of all mental and physical illness.

    Glomming onto scientific terms and distorting them massively is a
    standard operation procedure of the crank.
