So I suppose, I do believe in a slime-mold view of humanity or life in general as an organism that has existed for a very long time indeed.

I don’t believe the brain is a jar though.

I believe the brain is an outcropping of our nervous systems. It has gained dominance over the rest of our nervous system but it is integrally a part of it.


I don’t believe the “self” stops at the skin either.

We are connected physically, tangibly, perhaps even measureably, right now, right here.

Through communication. I see communication as a physical process that utilizes Time in a flexible fashion.

If you and I, William, were part of an organism, which I somewhat believe we are, my sensory output and your sensory inputs and feedback loops are physically connected.

The lag inbetween is, ultimately iinconsequential to the organism.
