Figurski at Findhorn on Acid

Rosellini's 1737 Mechanical Pig: By the 21st century there would seem to be very little left to say about Rosellini's 1737 mechanical pig or van Gelderschott's alleged 1884 forgery — and very few ways left of saying it. Yet when Frank Figurski, Nguyen Van Tho, and Fatima Michelle Vieuchanger began to reassemble their one-third portions of the total, they found that the two pigs were much greater than the sum of their parts. One hundred forty-seven (147) parts had mushroomed to 294 then 345 and finally 354, and those 354 parts were connected in a web of 2001 links that emulated the intricacy of the brain itself at the predawn of human evolution. Indeed, at the first Conference of Multidisciplinary Automaton Scholars (COMAS) meeting in the new millennium, vole researchers from Linwell Heath Academy would demonstrate that the first small, clever, nervous mammals scurrying furtively in the tracks of dinosaurs during the Jurassic Period had a neural structure precisely analogous to the Rosellini clockwork-servomechanism design. As in Rosellini's masterpiece of veterinary engineering, an entire pocket or grouping of vole neural nodes might be devoted to a single function (e.g., excretion), with other individual nodes or neurons defining links to different functions (e.g., eye-blinking; eye-blinking during excretion adds realism). The scientists argued that human brains have added bulk inside the skull and male pattern baldness atop it, but otherwise little real complexity, to this Mesozoic-Era vole template; respondents countered that if voles developed electronic tools to connect their tunnel networks, they would become a different species altogether.
