Hey Steve — yeah, I am still alive notwithstanding the killing tapestry bombing of facts about the magnitude of criminal idiocy of Das President, his twistering*, his family, and the rest of his adjoined creepestry — you just have posed a VERY interesting philosophical problem. Type: Schroedinger’s cat.
Is it possible that someone without a mind loses it? ‘So and so loses his mind’ presupposes there was something to lose, but brainless creatures do not have a mind. Even if the mind is located somewhere else in the body than the brain, it has to exist before it can be lost. Mindless people are doomed. Even mindfulness will not help, with nothing to fill.
One thing is clear though. Mindless people are in need of ‘lawyers’ that aren’t ‘lawyers'. Cohen was the right man in the right void.
