For several years he responded to emails and then stopped. Other people have noticed the same. Since he appears to be still in the land of the living, he must be either pre-occupied with other things or has lost interest in the db fooferah promoted by so many mystics and con artists.   Can't blame him. Now, can we get off this "change of direction" bafflegab?
