Hi Dan,

Those are nice questions I would be interested in some answer too. May
be I could try to recover from some hard disk the mailing address of
James' mother, I will try. James introduced the idea of immortality in
the list, and this has been what decided me to susbscribe. I met James
in Brussels one month before his accident. James was a very nice guy
dedicated to deep fundamental questions, and he was open to both
science and eastern religion. he was also very interested in Leibniz.
The list certainly miss him. If you get info, please tell us. Perhaps
Wei Dai knows better. I'm afraid his book was far from completed.
Perhaps you could find who manages his post-mortem web pages?

Welcome to the list Dan,
