I wish I could go to your film festival, but its a long way from Melbourne, Australia.
Perhaps later we could arrange to get a package of films thru some appropriate local organization probably yet to be formed.

I would like to donate but was unable to do so from Australia. The blue button system doesn’t accept my card number, and the orange Paypal page only allows input of American states even when my country is specified. Groan. Anyway, keep up your brilliantly encouraging and motivating compassion.
I discovered that fire is correlated with smoke.
Therefore smoke causes the fire?
Replace fire with brain shrinkage and smoke with relapse duration.
Now brain shrinkage is correlated with relapse duration.
Therefore relapses cause brain shrinkage?
Or is it the other way around?
I looked closely at Andreasen’s paper.
The authors found a “relationship” between
loss of brain volume and duration of relapses.
What I found quite startling was the continual
insistence that this should almost certainly
be interpreted as meaning that relapses cause
Even the most amateur of scientists knows that
correlation does not imply causation.
Why didn’t the authors further explore the
equally valid hypothesis that brain shrinkage
worsens the severity of symptoms and duration
of relapses ?
