    Hi, About six months ago someone gave me a copy of your letter on this show. It made my day. I've just seen the website. I'd like to chat to you... do you have a contact number? Thanks.

    Thanks for your comment pAUL. However we do not release personal contact details. One of us have had our fair share of annoying phone calls and unsolicited mail in the past. Not because of our website but because of past 'Letters to the Editor'. Hence we decided to limit communication to email. All our our emails have been supportive so far, as was yours, but it only takes one genuine person to give a number to a friend who gives it to a friend who gives it to a wacko, and the next minute you've got burning crosses on your lawn. There are a number of people who don't find our website 'amusing'.
    If you however wish to email us your contact number it might be possible to phone you. Assuming of course you don't live on the other side of the planet.

    pAUL never got back in touch. We wonder what sort of "chat" he really wanted to have with us? We don't understand why we would want to email him? Didn't he want to chat to us about something, not the other way around?

    Interesting Article about Stedman & Cellular Memories — never saw it, but seems as stated — 'designed for Entertainment mostly'.

    That being said, I remember reading many years ago, of an experiment where some rats were taught a series of tricks, then killed, their brains mulched, & injected into new rats, where the new rats, were able to perform many of the old dead rat tricks.

    Surely this would be an easy cheap experiment to re produce?

    We aren't familiar with that experiment on rats, and without more information we are doubtful that this would be the case. As you say, it would be an easy experiment to reproduce, and the fact that it apparently hasn't been would suggest that the claimed result is not reproducible. Sponges are the only life form that we know of that can be mulched and filtered and that can then reassemble themselves back into another sponge. Of course they don't have memories that can be interrogated to see if they remember their old self.
