All respect, but either/or seems pretty ludicrous where where one or the other by itself won't appear to get the job done. Instinct is required where there is no sense, and sense has been overweening where there is a _dismissal_ of instinct, it seems to me. Current events and ufological denial show science falling short as 'cultural panacea' to even bring discredit upon itself so, instinct, perhaps assisted by an 'anything goes' internet or sense-web, remains to fill the bill, caulk holes, until something better comes along. "Something better" might be a way where Plato and Aristotle learn to walk _together_, even _dance_, eh? It seems plain to me that both are required... All science seems to subsidize serious sociopathy, all instinct? Well, the mob does rise _up_ when enough is enough; by instinct I think, assisted by the new global sense web, as current events, events perhaps even facilitated somehow by prerequisites of science, show. alienview.nul www.AlienView.net AVG Blog -- http://alienviewgroup.blogspot.com/ U F O M a g a z i n e -- www.ufomag.com Listen to 'Strange Days...
