Pulled a muscle. Lying on ice. Performance tomorrow. Uh.

Reading Blindsight. At 40% now. I see what you guys meant. I also see that I was wrong in my original suspicion, back when I first heard about Blindsight, that the name would just be a metaphor for something or other, nothing to do with neurology. Nope. I'm going along and checking off... ah... let's call them phenomenae: blindsight, sure enough. Alien limb. The Cotard delusion. All that reading of Oliver Sacks paying off, I suppose, as well as physiological psychology and cognitive science courses. Chinese room? Check. Yes, this is something I can appreciate.

You're plowing through it! Have you already tried the Rifters series or not your thing?
