I believe it was the philosopher, mathematician, Rene Descartes, (who wrote Discourse on Method), who said simply, "I think, therefore I am". He lived during the 17th century, so he is quite dead now. I don't believe that he is "thinking" anything right now except maybe, "I am not".
I'm glad that you're not dead, Gary G.
I firmly believe in the "Socrates" approach to understanding and seeking knowledge. You know; ask a shit-load of questions. I believe that Socrates said to Plato once or twice; "Hey Plato, I'm going to ask you a shit-load of questions today". Of course, Socrates was a bit long winded and Plato was probably "tickled to death" when Socrates finally shut-up and drank the poison and died.
Of course, asking questions sometimes creates even more questions. I've always been really, really curious. But, I try to keep my questions simple.
My simple question today has to do with theoretical possibilities.
I took your advice and looked in the archives. I found some posts about Cluster Headaches and possible causes.
I located four excellently written posts on possible cause/effect relationships into Cluster Headaches.
I will attempt to link them here so you can simply "click" on them and they should "open" in a "new window" for easy reading:
There is the the Candidiasis Theory. And the Myelin Sheath Theory. And the Virus Immune Theory. And, for lack of a better term, the gary g Theory. (Sorry gary, but I really like your posts). :-) I especially like the last line of your post that I have linked back there.
It says simply, this:
"to me, we'd make immense strides in figuring this out if we could just get together on the idea that this probably isn't as much a search for a single needle in a haystack, as it is a friggin' jigsaw puzzle where we don't have the box picture to show us exactly where the parts go".
I would simply like to know what the hell do you think causes Cluster Headaches?
Thank you for your time.
