Chapter 9

The Brain.



What Gives us Experiences?

The brain is apparently the main organ that gives us the experiences, the senses, and feelings of being alive.  We say apparently, because there is likely more to the brain. We have consciousness which might be an aspect of brain processing or something else perhaps in a higher dimension.

Most of the scientific literature is based on descriptions of different parts of the brain, and where the functions of the brain take place.  Nerve pathways in the brain show that nerves are dedicated to specific meaning.

The brain has neutrons, brain cells that gate information. A neutron has a specific threshold for firing.  It fires when a certain number of pulses are received in certain time period.  Thus it is digital as it works with pulses, and analog in that it also works with the density of pulses over time.

Neurons are connected by synapses which conduct a signal between the neurons.  Neurons can be fired based on chemicals that surround it, on the signal density, and the chemicals within the synapse.  There are fast firing synapses and slow firing synapses. the slow firing synapses may take weeks to fire.

 

Recommended  books which support many of my ideas.
