Nadia, girl, I'm sorry a few one-liners prevented you -- or so it would appear -- from appreciating the importance of the topic I originally raised: is post-maturational sublimation possible?

Further, is sublimation a requirement of art? If it is, will science's ability to give us direct fulfillment of our needs eliminate art?

(Questions about fundamentals are, I suppose, impolite, or perhaps just invisible. Oh well.)

With affection,
