privacy - No privacy for you! No, really now. I will only use your first name and last initial at most, should I quote you from an email you sent me or in an entry from my Guestbook. However, I may feature you along with all the info I have about you, as I did on my backfire page, should you take a malevolent stance toward me or my website. Otherwise, my website is advertisment, cookies and pop-ups free. My web pages won't know who you are or care where you're coming from!
writing - My coverage of the material may seem cursory at present. This is because I have so many topics in mind that the way they come out is in spurts of ideas. I eventually come back to my topics and flesh them out more. It is my sincere hope that in the meantime, my readers do not just wait to learn everything from me! Instead, you are encouraged to learn more about the topic(s) that grab you, elsewhere on your own...unless, of course, I'm the only person producing such material! In that case, please have patience and...stand by.
I have received only limited feedback on my non-psychopath writings so far. From what I gather, my ideas are interesting, but when I get "scientific" -- ie the vertebrate eye analogy -- people without such specialized knowledge lose it. Hence, it would do my readers well if I returned to that area and "taught" more about the electrochemical workings of neurons in general, in order to fully comprehend the analogy. Unfortunately, I'm not the person for that. There are others WAY more qualified than I. I suggest you seek them out...keep learning!
The following section may be known as an "A-WIP" (a Work In Progress, beginning on Sunday the 19th of Aug., 2018):
COPYRIGHT DETAILS FOR (ALL?) PAGES APPEARING IN THE REALM OF www.syntheory.com FOLLOWS:
My initial online publication via www.syntheory.com was comprised of the following pages: biblio1.html and biblio2.html (later split up into three biblio pages), glossary.html, index.html (later moved to the /intro directory, being replaced by a completely new page layout), kill-tv.html (later renamed index.html and put in 2002's "policult" directory), kweduc.html, music1.html (later split into music1.html and music2.html) and patrons.html (later renamed realdeal.html), all going live on Thursday afternoon, the 27th of May, 1999. All pages were located in the same directory at this point; the root directory for the website. In January 2002, the website structure grew into several directory divisions: gmbh, intro, policult, psychopathy, and refs.
As far as copyrighted material goes, the biblio pages are the most ancient pages. This is because they date back to my Master's Thesis, copyrighted 1998. After 1998, I added to the bibliography little by little. So, much of this material from 1998 and 1999 (the initial syntheory.com writings) was re-published in 2000 and "used with permission". I did this so as to make a clean break with the last decade-century-millinium! I like fresh starts.
Hence, all pages of syntheory.com may be collectively cited as copyrighted 2000-Current Year, for instance: © 2000-2018. This also makes my editing the publication years every year for every page unnecessary! However, you may also use the information found on this page to specify a specific year or a more narrow range of years.
