    Absolutely fascinating article geoff - well done, really well done. It's so good I want to read it a few more times before making any other comment...!

    What I really like about it is the way that it provides some kind of answer for two or three questions at the same time.

    no more hypothetical than a lot of the stuff we all talk about on forums....

    Anyone remember Mike Wilson using chandelier crystals instead of leads, so as to negate any chance of an electric field between the lead and the hook?
    You're born, you take sh*t. You get out in the world, you take more sh*t. You climb a little higher, you take less sh*t. Till one day you're up in the rarefied atmosphere and you've forgotten what sh*t even looks like. It's just a shame I'm still on the first rung!

    i don't think there are too many people that thought the alien analogy wasn't! and those that those that thought it was true haven't read it yet as the X-Files is on

    I was pointing out the irony in a Alien with No Ears was Stone Death.

    All theories start as hypothetical. It's the scientific method. Many of the most useful theories have been shown to link different areas of knowledge together. If you think about it, a theory which plausibly answers several questions at once is far more likely to be correct.

    The problem with scientific theories is, that they are just theories until proven to be correct, and even then there will be other scientists who disagree with those theories and will set out to prove they are right, and it goes on and on and on.

    Unless you are a fish you will never truly know how a fish feels, smells, tastes etc etc you can only summise.

    That is why i said, Hypothetical, not that i didn't enjoy the story.

    A scientist can get an understnading of how a fish smells, tastes, hears etc by studying cell interaction at a microscopic level. Something you or I will not see and possibly not comprehend.
