     You may not agree with Adore, but that is what its all about.

     Sometimes biological machines need to have said things more clearly
than do souls.

     My fault.

     Anyhow the whole subject of Adore is the insanity of men (and
women) and the probable source of it, traumatized memory.

      Of course biological machines do not have any past track
memories before this life, and in fact they are much easier to
help than are souls.

     Souls have millions of years of deeds and doings that they have
chosen to forget trying to pretend they are biological machines,
and of course therapies that do not address that past run into a wall
of failure.
