I’m being let out of teaching for a few days to go to a meeting entitled "Ontogenesis", which is about ontology building as far as I can see.

I’m greatly looking forward to it, although being stuffed up in buffet car of an overpacked, overheated London train is not ideal. I’m going to talk about what appear to be the differences between neuroscience and biology in terms of ontology building — I’m basing the talk on ignorance and supposition as I hadn’t been doing this for long enough to know better.

I trialled the talk on Friday. It wasn’t very good. I should be working on it now, but the train is too horrible to concentrate on anything serious.
