Dear Karl,
I will certainly be interested in a meetup on the subject on the 
theoretical subject of how consciousness works. I am deeply involved in 
treatment of brain disorders with brain exercise directed by the oxygen 
content of brain capillaries. I can measure this at a chosen brain 
region using an infrared camera. I have discovered that the process of 
control of this brain aspect can be done voluntarily by anyone.
I will be glad to have such a meetup at my office 6542 Hayes Drive, Los 
Angeles 90048. Call me at[masked] 8500.
