Sections 1 through 6 are substantially complete. Sections 7 through 9, that are to support the proposed Thermal Model of Idealized Brains, are progressively less complete and there are no materials available as to section 10. The present draft of the Thermal Model of Idealized Brains is presently set forth elsewhere; supplementary material is planned for the Introduction. Some substance is provided in sections 11 and 12, chiefly in the form of targets and/or guidances for development of the Thermal Model and supporting conceptualization.
