    Thanks so much, Slang. Ordered John McLoughlin's "Toolmaker Koan" and read it.
    The Author has a fascinating mind. I tried to find out more about McLoughlin, but there is surprisingly little about him on the web, not even on Wikipedia. Although he has published several science fiction books and several notable scientific books, he appears to be an enigma. Any suggested leads?
