Amen. Antiorp certainly doesn't force this reader into anything like parallel thought - not even into single-stream thought - just automatic re-action as described by Patrick above. Good grief - with the amount of emails being downloaded at present, does antiorp think one has time to engage in any of those exotic thought processes? Does antiorp have to live in the "real world", where there are so many demands on our time, as most of us do? Ray.
