Assume you have a schizophrenic who hears everything I think
(internally), the whole time. When would he speak? When I speak, of
course. He would speak what I say when I speak and he would be called
a medium. Now assume somebody else is ALSO hearing the same thought
course but is not subject to it. If I am writing, *speaking*, the
second schizophrenic may be under the impression that the first
schizophrenic is **thinking**, and probably speaking... and I am the
medium writing or taking dictation!!! It is a fallacy.

So now assume that while writing I commit a typo, like when the caret
JUMPS over the place where the cursor is on in a browser edit text
box. In a computer I can correct a typo through a rather complex
combination of key strokes and reposition the caret. Such correction
implies a lot of visual observation; the caret is very implicit except
when having to reposition to correct a typo. What happens to the
**text** discourse? It stops! I have to stop my thought to correct the
typo and the linked medium... if he was dictating, did he forced the
typo? No! He would just keep dictating! But it is an illusion that he
is dictating, an illusion to both schizophrenics who are *hearing* the
author writing. Then the **dictating medium** would have to STOP its
dictation and wait for the typo correction and continue thereon...
rather mechanically! That is a contradiction! Now the driving medium
is under control of the typist committing typos!

The channel is thin. It does not admit a lot of throughput. In order
for a totally steady and unmoving, **thinking-only** mind, it would
need to transmit to the drone even the typing muscular orders! And
keep track of the implicit caret... and receive feedback on the
position of the cursor to make corrections when the cursor makes the
caret jump in this internet explorer. We cannot achieve that even in
remote computer sessions! It would require AT LEAST to be there a
SINGLE source, because if someone else is also transmitting... the
signal might cross.

This is more true for a long text. The medium would have to be a
perfect carcass under control of the active writer. Which violates the
second schizophrenic wrong inference that the immobile schizophrenic
medium is the one who is **thinking**.

At each typo the thinking mind stops the discourse to make the
corrections. If there was a dictating mind it would have to STOP with
a lag: some material just after the typo was discovered. THEN it would
have to repeat the text so that the typoing typist can get the
continuation! Then there is at least some separation between both
minds and more contradictions follow. Again it is a delusion of the
second schizophrenic that because it *hears*, the writer is NOT the
driving mind.

Of course there can be simultaneous texts, one original author writing
and a drone schizophrenic less than a medium taking dictation. But
then typos would have to be simultaneous and synchronized too! So even
the **dictated** schizophrenic would have to be independent to some
measure to correct its OWN typos. And it would stop hearing while he
corrects his OWN typo. And has to wait til the original author
corrects its typo. This becomes worse when intercalating text or doing
other computer related operations. Note that verbal speech, spoken or
written, is different from **mouse-CUA speech**. There is no guarantee
that both transmit nor that both transmit at the same rate nor that
both can be recognized by the drone schizophrenic. The drone
schizophrenic would be plagiarizing and he knows it. We developed
writing, computers and maybe even caret-cursor jumps to make the
distinction EVIDENT. Or we might lose the author to a drone s
dictation product.

I was truly bad at dictation in school. Only now after decades I can
write profficiently without watching (much) the keyboard.

Now consider very inner decisions to select capital letters or other
second layer text symbols... Or quick decisions to change word
order... Or window swaps... Same conclusions follow.
