achieve: And two couples of people can join and become a group of 4 people, one group, UNITED, as it were, so what is this going on about except being confusing or distracting, if anything? Consciousness the biggest mystery of them all? Which are the lesser "mysteries"? Boomie knows a few ...

achieve: Nadal's game is based on a few pillars, none of which are among the technically refined or creative/artistic ones. Oddly enough his finishing at the net is a pure pleasure for the eye, esp. that BH high or low volley, but with his FH's violent follow through around and to the back ...

achieve: <moro> Pity about last night... 41-32 from memory? Well, that's quite a gap there at the end, and perhaps the pressure was too much to handle properly. Saric won B with a round to spare! And Timman had an excellent tourney, over 60 years young, probably the best result in ...

achieve: Ignore that last question, as it is rhetorical, but the point here is that misrepresentation leeds to wasted time and dated discussions which the current leading academics view as detrimental to science and the study of concscienceness and other theories that distance themselves ...
