[Rothwell] Shanahan says that sense of touch . . .
What Jed thinks I say is totally in his imagination.
I just quoted you above. Would you care to explain this, or are you going to pretend you did not say it?
[Rothwell] "[snip] A thermocouple malfunction cannot cause a cell to be too hot to touch, “
[Shanahan:] But it can precondition a human to believe that the cell is hot and even dangerous, which would result in misinterpreting sensory data. This impact of expectations on judgment (which is what was being done by ‘touching’) is a well-established fact. That makes any data of this nature highly suspect, and certainly not solid enough to conclude physics textbooks must be rewritten.
Again I ask, but you will not answer: Do you seriously think that two middle aged scientists might be deluded into thinking that an object wrapped in towels is too hot to touch when it is actually at room temperature?
