Wolf892: Think so? I'm no expert, but I'd hope that a fully developed adult brain would be able to learn these tasks a lot quicker than an underdeveloped brain of a child. Not sure though, but it is a good point to consider...

And research has shown that people who can't form long term memories can still learn new, complex, skills. This would mean that while you might not remember a lot of what you used to know, you haven't exactly forgotten it. Any knowledge you used to have will be far easier to retrieve once you start learning things. Just think about it, you'd go through your first 12 years in schooling in maybe half the time it took you the first time around. And let us not forget that most people with amnesia still remember how to talk and use the toilet, so that would be a plus.

The 12 steps work perfectly - if YOU work the program. Have you gone to your meetings?, worked your steps?, read you Big Book?, call your sponsor?, get in '90 in 90'?. Well then that's why you failed. You must surrender to the program - the steps work if you work them but you have to work them every day! Any other type of subversive attempts are denial in action. Surrender to the program... we have assumed control. We have assumed control. We have assumed control.

<i> it's particularly disturbing to see mind-altering ablations being performed in a country where citizens are essentially property of the state </i>

You have to own something to mortgage it right?  If you know the way our income tax system works in the US the government basically gets a loan from the federal reserve using the people as collateral.  Are we not owned?
