Thanks Pat    (01)

I did not realise that brainwaves was your side expertise    (02)

gotta be done Pat - in fact I think the knowledge is already half there
it just needs to be published in a rational format    (03)

Ha - ther isnt any established as yet  that we know of at this point in time    (05)

Look forward to discovery and knowledge representation of this subject
on the web
