Technology has always found its greatest consumer in a
nation's war and defense efforts. Since the last attempts at a
"Star Wars" defense system, has technology changed
considerably enough to make the latest Missile Defense
initiatives more successful? Can such an application of
science be successful? Is a militarized space inevitable,
necessary or impossible?

To work together, especially in a joint
We STILL don't know what's rshow55 working on. He himself
doesn't know. How can any 2 people work on any "joint" effort
(eg: paving the road etc)-- let alone anything "intellectual."
Since you too are 'working together', why don't you tell us
[since he can NOT] what is the "joint inteelectual effort" YOU
are engaged in ? World peace ? Meaning of life ? Or ?

Jorian .... I'm busy designing an new
device, it's called THE CANTABBULATOR
Input - concepts Process - press the 'WHIZ'
button Output - beggars belief
It's a cute item for the executive who has
Can it also get people to focus ? IF not, what good is yet
another gadget ?
WRC sent a subliminal message to take
Cantabb off Ignore ... the Cantabbulator picked up on this
Well, there are a LOT of such sdubliminal messages floating
See WRC reverse himself as he seems to have done in the
past: the on-again-off-again "ignore" !
All I hope for is: He does NOT invite me for a face-to-face

Maybe this thread is just a prototype - with
(very good) stand-ins -but judging from the degree attack
when I've asked who gisterme is - and the significant
efforts of jorian319........
May be it's just an analyst's couch for you !
Now if people with managerial
responsibilities could learn a few things . . . who knows
what might happen?
The only person desperately in need of some basic learning
is, am afraid, you, and you alone (with lchich).

Can we do a better job of finding
truth? YES. Click "rshow55" for some things Lchic and I have
done and worked for on this thread.
From early March 2001 for a long time - I saw my role
largely as facilitating conversation between gisterme
and almarst - - and there was a lot of conversation.
And all along - I've intended to set out clarifications -
"search keys" if you will - for organizing things.
We've done some, too.

"Statements on frequently important
subjects are interesting." -rshow55
We STILL don't know what's rshow55 working
on. He himself doesn't know.
Yeah, but he's sure he's making progress on whateveritis.
The only person desperately in need of some
basic learning is, am afraid, you
I may not be in desperate need, but I'll take all
the basic learning I can bumble upon, and thank you very much.

TRUTH outs in the end : TRUTH has

I was given a superb education
Showalter can the input cost of the superb education be
If an expense is incurred - to which taxpayers contribute -
then this they do via government because the 'value' of the
outcomes contribute to 'the common good'.
So what 'price'. to date, can be put on the
inputs -- 'unsolved problems' ...
the process -- pressing of the auto-cognitive whiz
Does 'DeBriefing' fit here?
