If your head is separated from your body, it is no longer your head, it's just "a" head. Remember, possession is nine tenths of the law.

No, it's still your head. It's just Autonomous.

I view it the other way around- the head contains the consciousness so, for those moments, the head is the person. Not that I would ever want to try it...

The world is cruel to prophets. That is why Lovecraft, like Nostradamus before him, framed his insights as literature.

Worthy attempt. Sure these weren't Atheism super-stores?

Understandable, considering, but look at the USA's king and think twice.

I don't think that comes under the heading of variant spelling conventions, so it must be a typo, right?

Shouldn't it be, 'resonated?' :)
