HUGH,
Have you heard of Aishwarya Rai - supposedly, the most beautiful woman in the world?
No and I remain Hugh. The lady is pretty/beautiful but not the most beautiful. The sexiest man in the world is definitely not as sexy as I was when I was younger. I am still sexy although at times I wonder if I am close to the end of my first trimester in pregnancy.

BTW, what happened to that Versace pret suit that you picked up from a discount sale? LOL.
The store closed and the suit vanished.

HUGH,

Geneticists have failed to account for personality traits and genes responsible for behavioral traits have not been found.

There exist no clear-cut molecular mechanisms for personality traits, yet man being a product of consciousness, energy and matter manifests personality traits.

Genes are matter and responsible for expressing our physical traits.

So, what could personality be related to and how does personality traits tie in or causally connect with DNA?

Another observation - Genes are not responsible for personality traits, yet if the neuronal network is tinkered with it affects our behavior.

So, how would you account for the the entire phenomenon of personality?

"SUBSTANCE" ?
When you use capitals as you've done with the word SUBSTANCE, you should not use inverted commas as a highlight since the use of caps itself is a highlight?
Didn't you know this basic rule in English grammar?
As a native English speaker from Jamaica, your English lacks punch, depth and class.
The fluency is there but the vocab and grammar and flow are unimpressive.
Son, I do so in order that my intentions are not lost to the simple.

Which kind of hotels?

What're you favorite cuisines?

Around 3 years ago, I recall you informing me that you'd visited a 5 star hotel just once in your life and that too in Aruba.

Have you heard of the IITs - Indian Institutes of Technology?
Have you heard of the IIT JEE - Indian Institutes of Technology Joint Entrance Exam - that is supposedly the most difficult entrance exam in the world for entry to undergrad courses in STEM subjects?
What if the answers are no?

What if you have mentioned them before?

Have you seen any pics of Aishwarya Rai?

Some years ago, there was a kind of competition in the world media between Aishwarya Rai and Angelina Jolie for the title of the most beautiful woman.

I think Katrina Kaif is a great looker?

Have you heard of the Bollywood actress, Katrina Kaif?

JOEL THUMBS UP"---HUGH,Do you think consciousness is a nonlocal phenomenon?

Hugh--- I always THINK. Yes.
Now, share your thoughts on the matter and give reasons.

Joel---Is it possible for consciousness in any of its gradations to do work?

Hugh--- Yes but mindless matter cannot work unless it is acted on my a consciousness.

Yes, but are you aware of the rule concerning the use of highlights in the English language of which you can use just one at a time?

The use of capitals, inverted commas and the underline are the 3 ways of highlighting a word or a phrase in English.

Any one of these can be used at a time.

Anyway, all's well that ends well.

Ok, no big deal.

Many of the IIT alumni are world famous.

Which is the best science and tech university in Jamaica?

As for the A levels, I find the course content of the British A level high school course inferior.

The IB from Geneva is better in terms of rigor and relevance.

Outside of the rare personal visits to these places the majority of my visitations were business related. I care very little for hotel life. I am a nature lover and love the simpler things in life. The reason why I knew about the Aruba hotel was because I heard my colleagues speaking about it. Of course the obvious class was noted but meant very little.

The things that are most important to me in hotels are the quality of the food and the sanitation. I ALWAYS sterilize the bathroom fixture after they have been cleaned.

1. While I like Angelina I would not regard her as the most beautiful woman. Both women are beautiful.

2. No memory of Katrina, at this time.

No, no, those are not the answers.

More on these profound questions, later.

Among the world's religious scriptures, only the Vedas deal with consciousness and these days quantum physics is increasingly concentrating on consciousness.

Is consciousness a substratum, a phenomenon or an epiphenomenon?

1. I have noted that you did not respond to the question, what if you have spoken about them before? Ok, no big deal.

2. Jamaica is very small relative to India and so there are not many universities. Having said that, each institution would make the claim to being the best.

3. I disagree with your view on A levels.

You should do the same at home.

The toilets in the house should be thoroughly cleaned twice or thrice a day.

No one is permitted to use my personal toilet.

My guests are free to to use the other toilets in the apartment.

Only the servants enter my personal toilet to clean it thrice a day and do the same with the other toilets at home.
