Hmm, first "know thyself", if you can statistically predict what you will do under a certain set of conditions, perhaps this can extend to others... like a kind of merging of consciousness with another... I don't know if you've ever experienced this, it goes beyond a conventional scientific / rational framework.

Heh, good point, its easy to lose perspective when caught up in details :)

What I was trying to say in a round about way:  inspiration is the moment of unity with the creative force of the universe, focused through the modality of the "individuals" consciousness. This would manifest differently in different organisms (see Maslows Hierarchy of Needs or the evolutionary ascension through the Chakras).

to do that.
Which is one of the reasons I want computers to suggest new possibilities outside these limits, so as to expand my awareness of the possible.. perhaps these limitations are illusary..  I am more of a neo-enlightenmentalist or something in that I believe it is possible to trancend these "psychological structures and boundaries", and "free will" generally exists within constraints of the manifest environment,

Anyways I look forwards to the cyberfeminist discussion...
