Mr m, in the Psychology firmament, as in the cosmos itself, we’ll witness the birth of stars, the luminosity of some, outshining and obscuring that of others. Ultimately, Mr m, we’ll possibly witness their eventual transition to supernovae, thence to black hole, and relative oblivion. Undeniably, the influence of the residual black hole upon its immediate environs is quite profound, but no more so, I would argue, than neighbouring black holes, whilst all around, the brilliance of other stars vie for our attention and adoration, which we bestow, according to our predilections, prejudices and biases.
The theses of the lady in question, garner their admirers and detractors, as do most expositions of supposedly brilliant scientific research, and even more so, upon aspiring to, or having attained learned treatise status. Adoration or disparagement, Mr m, bestow no guarantee of factual accuracy, or lack thereof. And besides, Mr m, I doubt that the state of brains like our Mr J’s, have caused Ms Loftus much perturbation.
Apologies to Miss Austen, Mr m, but, ‘Tis a truth universally acknowledged, that the finest psychologists on this planet…are cats.’ and since I’m a cat, you can take it as read, that you are in safe paws, and when I say Mr J’s brain is his hard drive, that’s as good an analogy as you’re likely to get. As for data input, from his earlier endeavour, I think it’s safe to assume that went without a hitch, and is safely stored on his cranial hard drive.
Data retrieval in certain cases, can, prove problematic, as Ms Loftus will attest to, however, in the case of our Mr J. we have to assume that his computer’s hard drive going tits up, hasn’t left him traumatized, to the extent that he’s begun fantasizing (actually, it could be a big bonus if he was).
Anyway, as your good self and Mr geoff and I have pointed out, the new version could prove to be superior to the original.
So! Chocks away Mr J! Let’s put these theories to the test. Wot d’y’ say?
