Insomuch as one can break the implicit fourth wall in a book like this, I'd like to do so and state that this chapter has been the most difficult to write. Not in the sense that the subject matter is the most difficult to grasp (although it's hardly a field of consensus and empirical evidence), nor that the research was particularly overwhelming, nor in the sense that it's difficult to draw parallels or explain the concepts in as plain a form of English as they allow. In truth, I knew this would be the most difficult before I even started this book, simply due to the expectations for such a subject matter.
