It’s like they say: “I’m right, the rest of the world is wrong.”

In conclusion I concluded long ago

Comment on Christina Riccis’ Big Head by toph welch http://tomarken.com/ambivilen/2002/10/christina-riccis-big-head/comment-page-1#comment-27 toph welch Mon, 20 Mar 2006 05:45:16 +0000 http://tomarken.com/ambivilen/2002/10/christina-riccis-big-head#comment-27 I happen to be cruising the Internet this fine Monday when to my delight I found this wonderful article addressing what's on everyone's mind but no one is talking about: Christina Rici's' dangerously disproportionate cranium. Over the past year I have conducted a series of independent studies targeting the neurological dangers associated with C. Rici's' condition. I regret to report that the subject data reveals some ALARMING findings. Due to the imbalance in mass between C. Rici's' head and body there is an abnormally high concentration of basal ganglia stem cells at the top of her spinal cord. This increase in synaptic activity in Rici's' neck in conjunction with her dramatic (and may I say tragic) reduction in bust size has the potential to exponentially increase the rate at which this transformation is taking place. At this point I was forced to terminate my study because a new danger was emerging. The computer model I was utilizing predicted the development of an instability so intense between the mass of her head and the lack of mass of her body so as to create a fold in space similar to that which can occur if a black hole encounters a sub-atomic filament. If this were to occur, (and the event is imminent) every living thing within a half mile of the base of C.Rici's' skull will blink out of existence.

Free Will Redux

Tomarken’s first “Response to a response.”

I start with an apology to Mark Nugent;

Back on 4/15/02, I posted an article on “Free Will”.

Only recently did I find that Mark had written a long thoughtful reply dated 5/23/02 .

So I am responding, responsibly.

The debate about free will is one of those puzzles that man has created to occupy his excess brain power, ( see Dr. Yarrum’s submission dated 5/31/02)

There is really no way of proving that we exercise free will.

To even start talking about it we might exclude social demands that we exercise some control over our bodily functions.

Our vital organs will function despite our free will.

The brain is also a vital organ and the assumption must be that this is the organ over which we ar able to exercise control.

The ultimate test might be that, to demonstrate his free will, some nut might commit suicide on the spot.

His opponent would counter that the dead man in front of him had eaten a pickle that disagreed with him, hence suicide.

Furthermore, over the millennia, such self destructive mutants would not have progeny, insuring the survival of the species.

I believe that it is vital to assume that we have free will, proof or no proof.

Without it, no one could be punished for criminal behavior, and society would have no one to blame for its own shortcomings.

Many religions have a problem accepting both an omniscient God and free will.

Would not an omniscient God know that Adam would eat the forbidden fruit?

The Hebrew Passover has been celebrated for thousands of years, rereading the story of their liberation from Egypt.

Each time Moses and Aaron went before Pharaoh to “let my people go”.the Haggadah reads, “and God hardened Pharaoh’s heart!”

Poor Pharaoh has gotten a bad press ever since.

The New York Times Magazine article that I have linked from this submission is the most well documented story that I have seen on this issue and you should give that a look if you haven't already. Other than that I am not exactly certain how to answer your questions with out some more specifics and clarification. While I studied these 'characters' I did so after all of the information came to the surface and since my report I have had virtually no connection with them. Dan Beckmann, Moderator of Letters----Thank you for interacting with tomarken.com/org Ms. Patterson,

I saw something about a Ben Zaraphor in your thesis. Could that be the same person? I don't mean to be in any way insulting, but I've never heard of your school, until I saw a show on cable tv. The program was about Gary Tredway, nee Howard Mechanic. I am interested in how GT/HM was able to elude the feds for so long and who was his facilitator and benefactor. Obviously this is all water under the bridge, so don't be threatened by my questions. I'm only curious about the process. I am particularly interested in the activities of Ben Zaricor in regards to the re-invention of Howard Mechanic. How many students attended your school at that time? Where exactly in Ohio in regards to exposure to cosmopolitan centers? From where did the students get their news, i.e, the Chicago Tribune, etc. Thank you for your time and attention.
