Holy shit, that's what Kool-Aid is?  :psyduck: I thought it was just a soft drink, not a sugar bomb diluted with a bit of water.

Wow. It's not really valid to imply a connection between a cooperation or mirror test to Theory of Mind, though I can see where they're coming from, but trying to connect Theory of Mind to spiritual beliefs is a stretch only Mr. Fantastic could do.

An example of an experiment testing Theory of Mind is this. You can scroll down to the appendix which contains little story snippets and questions to assess different levels of Theory of Mind. For example, in the first question, it is stated that Bobby keeps his chocolate in the cupboard, but when he's away, his mother takes it and puts it in her bag. The question is, when Bobby returns, where does he look for the chocolate?

I recall that they tested this in chimpanzees by putting one in a room with two people, one of whom the chimp saw hiding food in a location inaccessible to it, and another person who did not see this. They saw that the chimp would beg for food with the person who knows about the hidden food and ignore the other person, which suggests it has Theory of Mind. That says precisely diddly squat about whether chimps can have religious beliefs, though.

I like Carbon Leaf.  Their songs tend to be a nice mix of calm and upbeat.

Oh, so now comes pages and pages of Marten figuring out his feelings.

Yeah. And then back to the Sven/Dora storyline, then back to Faye and Angus, then Dale and Marigold, a dash of Pintsize shenanigans, some cereal, a liberal helping of Yelling Bird, the return of Wil and Penelope, some Tai and Dora developments, then another Claire/Marten cliffhanger around Thanksgiving, with more indecision when the comic resumes, followed by another visit to the space station, a visit with Jimbo, May's parole violation, and then another Claire/Marten cliffhanger right before Christmas leading to more indecision in the New Year. :P
... NO RAVEN ???  :cry:

A dark-haired woman will show up in the background of a few strips, leading to speculation on the forum, but no Raven. Because Jeph.

mmm... pancakes

We now have meme #3.

Waffles, Space Ham, Pancakes.

Welcome to IHOP (Intergalactic House of Pancakes).

FURTHER SPECULATION: What if we've been looking at this all wrong, and all this time Jeph's biggest influence has been the Archie comics? That means another ten years (or more) of Marten going back and forth endlessly between Betty and Veronica Claire and Emily.

Question sparked by speculation: So who's Jughead? Pintsize? Steve?

Yeah, the rule is really about fan shipping. At this point we are absolutely in the realm of Jeph-shipping. :)

[...] read the rules back atop the main forum. This is a no-shipping forum, despite what you may have been led to believe.)

Though "no shipping" doesn't prevent discussion of the immediate implications of what we've actually seen in the comic.  We're not that unreasonable!
