These labs were planned to be built in a number of locations. But keep in mind that the Greater Boston area is the brain in the heart* of the military-industrial complex, the bio-pharmaceutical industry and the think tanks that formulate and educate others in matters of terrorism and such.


* see http://www.rcpsych.ac.uk/pdf/Heart,%20Mi...0Salem.pdf : "... The heart's brain is an intricate network of several types of neurons, neurotransmitters, proteins and support cells similar to those found in the brain proper. Its elaborate circuitry enables it to act independently of the cranial brain to learn, remember, and even feel and sense. The heart's nervous system contains around 40,000 neurons, called sensory neurites (Armour, 1991). Information from the heart - including feeling sensations - is sent to the brain through several afferents. These afferent nerve pathways enter the brain at the area of the medulla, and cascade up into the higher centres of the brain, where they may influence perception, decision making and other cognitive processes (Armour, 2004)...."
