However, Carrol, thinking in terms of those implicit relationships is precisely what the symbolic species does, almost by compulsion, Deacon asserts, and explains. (Later, on the explanation.) As Deacon puts it, symbolizers live cognitively and emotionally in a "bi-layered world."
Back to my comment about Burke, Christianity, and hell. Didn't Jack Selzer and Rosa Eberly visit Burke shortly before KB's death, sit with him around the kitchen table, and hear him mumbling something about how there is no heaven, only hell? Selzer and Eberly published about the visit, can't think of the journal in question.
Whatr about it, Jack? Am I close to being correct in this recollection?

Edward C Appel : ".
. .I could quote Scripture here, a passage in Romans and one
in Hebrews on how the visible things of this world adumbrate
a reality that is beyond. I'll let Deacon expand on
the matter in his own way in a subsequent post.
Relations, in contrast to the things related,
must be thought rather than observed. (Quoted or paraphrased
from memory: Marx, Grudrisse.) The Scripture cited is quite
compatible with a materialist view. When you hold an object
in your hand, you can _see_ the object; you can _see_ the
hand: you think the relationship between them, which is as
beyond sense as any heavenly reality.
