Thank goodness your interests arent purely rote, Larry, or the WP no doubt would be more less, and less more. :)-Stevert

Larry, I would like to break up the Perception section into more pieces, specifically, to separate Proprioception from the Ectosymplastic nature of Perception. -- OK?

WikiProject Philosophy[edit]

A WikiProject Philosophy has been started, in the hopes of coordinating the efforts of philosophically-inclined Wikipedians. One of the current goals of this project is to reduce the amount of Larry's Text remaining on the 'pedia. If you are interested or wish to voice a comment or concern, please drop by the project page or the talk page. Adam Conover 20:50, Apr 8, 2004 (UTC)

How up to date is the list below? It seems a bit on the long side... many of the articles linked to are quite Un-Larryed already. Thomas Ash 10:41, 13 December 2005 (UTC)
