    This whole discussion reminds me of mind, body, self, soul discussions.
    There seems to be a "sum is more than its parts" going on. That's the
    point about cohesion I think. The brain may be just a static biological
    pattern, but when it encounters other patterns such as "government" or
    "calculus" it can do so much more than a mere static pattern labeled "human
    organ" ever could.

      My definition points right now in a direction of autonomy. Individual
    autonomy seems to me to be a prerequisite for experiencing and subsequently
    valuing a DQ event. If IA is not operative, then the DQ event is feared and
    rejected. Think "savage meets flashlight," or "city slicker in forest at
    night" as examples. If IA is operative, the DQ event is further analyzed to
    see if it should be at least temporarily latched.

    Question here though, does it then become a static intellectual pattern
    accumulated to the group of SPOQs called Lila or Sam or Phyllis or Paul?
