This is a Work-in-Progress. It began five years ago after a two-year work relationship with a former high-school classmate who became a world-famous Brain scientist ended abruptly, due to circumstances beyond our control. My friend Dr. Paul Bach-y-Rita has since passed away and so - in a sense - this project is an obligation I feel I have to complete the work we began together one December evening in 2002. It is also dedicated to him.
For more than half a century, a mutual classmate of ours has kept track of where the members of the January '51 Class of the BRONX HIGH SCHOOL of SCIENCE are living - if indeed they still are, and what they're doing. When she learned that I had just moved to the state of Wisconsin, she immediately informed me and Paul who was then a tenured Professor at the University of Wisconsin that we were now living in the same state and perhaps we should get together. Paul called me before I could call him, and invited me to visit him in Madison. He was close to perfecting an invention of his and wanted me to see it. Thus began two of the most exciting years of discovery I have ever experienced. But the research it spawned continues. That's what this project is about.
I will be adding elements of the project I call COMING TO YOUR SENSES - from time to time. I may even be taking some side trips along the way - reason being the scope of the project is quite - well - actually its scope is open-ended.
A note about the image above, which I found on the Web. It's a Photo-shopped version of a character from Fritz Lang's classic 1927 futuristic film "METROPOLIS". "She" is - a robot named "False Maria" . This combination of Chakras and Robots that someone recently dreamed up, is a spot-on visual metaphor for much of the story I'll be telling. So, enjoy!
