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, nearly done by 18th of May 2019):
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, all located in the website's "root directory": glossary.html, biblio1.html and biblio2.html (split up into three biblio pages in 2001, and later re-located to 2002's new "refs" directory). The two biblio pages started out as A-M and N-Z and were later expanded into A-H, I-P and Q-Z. This page you're currently reading used to be called syn-pols.html and was published on day one, moving to 2002's new "refs" directory as index.html. Also, the initial front page, index.html (later moved to 2002's new "intro" directory, being replaced by a completely new front page layout (index.html) in the root directory), theories.html (later renamed index.html and re-located to 2002's new "gmbh" directory), kill-tv.html (later renamed index.html and put in 2002's new "policult" directory), psycho.html (first uploaded on 7 June 1999 and later moved to 2002's new "psychopathy" directory); rights.html and a new index.html page were included for this new 2002 "psychopathy" directory; kweduc.html (later moved to 2002's new "refs" directory, music1.html (later re-located to 2002's new "policult" directory and in 2015, split into music1.html and music2.html), hackdown.html, (later re-located to 2002's new "policult" directory), and finally, patrons.html (later renamed realdeal.html and left in syntheory.com's root directory), all going live on Thursday afternoon, the 27th of May, 1999, except for psycho.html. On January 1, 2002, the website structure grew into several directory divisions: /gmbh, /intro, /policult, /psychopathy, and /refs.
Both tunes.html and sidedish.html appeared in 2003, sometime between May and August, and were put in the root directory. I started writing my short story on future.html in 2012. 2017 saw the arrival of social.html, earning a place in the root directory, and May 2019 saw the rise of my feminism.html page, whose favorites icon looks a little squashed and is to denote women under pressure.
The significance of the page colors: No significance here, really. I just chose different color combinations for each page, as I don't like bright white constantly in my eyes. The only pages where the chosen colors have significance is on the three bibliography pages. When it was just two pages, the colors were yellow and green - the colors of Prozac.
Now, when I expanded it into three pages, I had to come up with another color which fit the theme of the pages already in place. I chose black to denote depression. Not only did it go with the Prozac color theme, it also fits my likes of not having a bright white light shining up at the eyes all the time.
The only other page color with any meaning is the psycho page. It was an early page getting a lot of my attention. I made the page color dark because I was looking at it a lot. It was only later that it dawned on me that it was also symbolic of the inversion of social-antisocial!
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, being "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, write: © 2000-2019. 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.
