"I am, alas, a simple storyteller invalided out of academia on account of ME"

I know the problem - same thing happened to my eldest daughter. However, self-education can be a rewarding experience especially when you take the serendipitous route of allowing one subject to automatically follow another.

The subject or the origin and development of consciousness if one that has intrigued me for decades and, despite almost constant reading, I'm no closer to an answer (Chalmer's The Conscious Mind is about the closest).

Thanks for the heads-up on the Carter/Pegg album - I was just playing Keeper of the Fire last night and admiring the way he weaves folk songs into his own stuff (as in The Boatbuilder).
