what I am attempting to do is connecting abstraction to physical process.
I don’t think I’m going to get all the oscillations right
I may get some things out of order.
but I believe that this is the genesis of categorization and concepts.
I looked at the vision. i looked at the auditory system. I looked at touch. briefly stopped at taste.
I avoided the olfactory system because I thought it would be too complex.
The only reason I ended up here was because I saw that the hippocampus and the olfactory system were segments of the same primitive evolutionary structure.
The body has a lot of redundant systems.
look at eating.
we are fueled by carbohydrates
but what if there are no carbohydrates?
back up systems engage. Same cells function differently suddenly. new processes emerge.
I did the Atkins diet twice in my life – it’s now just called keto – And the difference how the body functions is amazing.
so many subtle differences but all across the body.
i don’t know if i could commit again to it. but it works.
