LITERALLY more internal WIRES!? So still on Retrosplenial Cortex, which seems key to ‘something’. A search for Retrosplenial Cortex ADHD got me: “Insula-Retrosplenial Cortex Overconnectivity Increases Internalizing via Reduced Insight in Autism” “Reduced Insight” – which is a silly phrase – means an inability to see one’s self as having a problem when others around you think you do. It’s a social issue (being out of step with common opinion). That said, defined positively? yeah, I can see what they mean. AND, prematurity results in neuronal overgrowth – overconnectivity – generally, because the neural development is sped up exponentially being out of the womb and having to deal with world-stuff instead of being in the womb developing at the normal slower pace swimming in fluid. [internalizing means keeping things to yourself. It can be a rich internal landscape or anxiety/depression/etc or some combination of things that’s generally invisible to outsiders] https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0006322318300635

It’s common in every election for the losing side to cry foul and claim there was fraud. Investigations happen. They find a couple of bad votes. The losing side remains unhappy. But for the losing President to do this is astounding. But Trump is known for perpetuating bad rumors and holding onto them for years. Example: “Obama was not America but born in another country.”. That wasn’t his first time either. He’s done that in other things too. It’s just.. never has he gotten so many to believe him.

It’s common in every

“If the PPA represents landmark information, then it must be able to discriminate between 2 places of the same category, but in different locations. Instead, if the PPA represents general category information (as hypothesized here), then it will not represent the location of a particular place, but only the category of the place. As predicted, we found that the PPA represents 2 buildings from the same category, but in different locations, as more similar than 2 buildings from different categories, but in the same location. In contrast, another scene-selective region of cortex, the retrosplenial complex (RSC), showed the exact opposite pattern of results. Such a double dissociation suggests distinct neural systems involved in categorizing and navigating our environment, including the PPA and RSC, respectively.” https://www.pnas.org/content/116/42/21312

So, I don’t fully understand this except they successfully found a repeatable method to turn a map projection with height into a playably accurate (not just technically accurate) representation of real earth in minecraft. I think if I reread this a few times it’ll click but I’ll just say that I’m impressed at least by the presentation on this page. “The real world is not flat – on a large scale it’s pretty much ellipsoidal. However, we often want to represent a part of the surface of the Earth on a map (on paper or on a computer screen) – so we use map projections to map from the curved surface of the ellipsoid onto a flat surface (2D). We also agree that our landscape is not really a positively curved, rotationally symmetric ellipsoid. There are hills, valleys, buildings and so on. We get around that with the help of so-called height models, which represent the surface in a coordinate system which is a combination of a flat 2D planar system and a height axis. The height axis can represent height above the ellipsoid, a truly geometric concept, or the height above a geoid, that carries the important geophysical information that water tends to run downhill!” “1.
