Hi culaavuso

Can you infer the textual support from the standard DO requirement that contact is dependant of the 6 bases?

I don't intend to approach the suttas as a Bible literalist trying to appeal to the notion of the God of the Gaps. If current science suggests no workable sense faculty prior to the 8th week, how will DO be applied?

I don't think it fails Popper's test of falsifiability. I may not be a biologist, but I make a fairly good arm-chair version. If the papers I have been reading are not tainted by manipulation or bias, there is empirical evidence linking foetal sensate abilities to the development of the thalamus.
