Look, ideas about any brain function that were proposed before the very recent advances in brain science, in other animals - mainly rats, is pretty useless. Thus, the idle speculations of philosophy and the social sciences are real dead ends, discussing any brain processes. These are matters of medical facts, not cultural beliefs and semantics...duh...
BTW, a truthful statement is any statement that predicts a measurable event in the future. All other kinds of statements are opinion and cannot be judged as truthful.
Actually my "hint" reflected the act you just used to read these words... the acts of selection of which there are only two mutually exclusive and jointly exhaustive origin variables that give rise to states of existence. The mechanism of selection comes first, then the effect we call consciousness second (see pg. 4).
Why are "consciousness" folks always running off to physics and ignoring biology, medicine and physiology...duh?
Perhaps Elmer, without our physical reality there would not be "biology, medicine and physiology".
Gee, I guess your doctor then should just spend his time learning more physics...
physics is a "simple" and well ordered discipline, not so biology, medicine and physiology. I miss psychology.
Frankly Elmer, I find all the disciplines of science fascinating for they are all fundamentally mechanical. In other words, we cannot act in violation of the laws that govern our existence which means that these laws are universal to all disciplines. Perhaps you would find the application of my findings to how we get angular and linear momentum from nothing?
