Hah, this is like rusty Jedis meeting up. Yes Tim, we clashed over our different opinions on the issue of FREE WILL.

But killer whale movies aside, nah, I ain't got no power alliances... GRR! Deterministic cognitive ecologies! ROAR! (Bares bright blue arse) Deterministic cognitive ecologies!

Can we carry out all debate like this please? I had this theory that 80% of day-to-day conversation could be replaced just by singing the intonation curves of what you were going to say. Not much use over email, maybe we should standardise our soundcards and we could send MIDI files instead.
