Akira!

I had not the least curiosity about your book after reading the press
blurb.  Now I do, as it raises interesting questions about
boundaries and definitions of the human.  Looks like Reg's Heidegger
insight was on the mark too. That was the only way I could meaningfully
understand animals "not dying" (ie., they just wear away, are things, not
Dasein).

Will check this out.
