    Thank you Diane for your always Curiosity! I'll go 2nd. This is my 4th reference to the berlinwall in our brain on this site. The 3rd is in Sonnet 24.2nd in the notes to Chaos in Corpus Callosum, where you can find an advantage - namely, whole brain functioning (ie. sanity!) . The 1st is in my Forum message Brief Requiem for the English Editor (ie. anatomically mad) . Split mushroom stems, of course, refers to nuclear fission weaponry/technology which, were we sane, would be abolished on the spot! (Report) Reply

    There are some disadvantages in deliberately tearing down that 'berlin wall' (great metaphor!) but I don't know if there would be advantages. So you go first and tell us what you think. (Report) Reply
