Why do I think it was a conversation we had? In my note, I mention that I’d missed the connection of the DLPFC to “flow states”, having previously (in 2014) only linked it up to meditation and reduction of anxiety. Made mention of the connection between schizophrenia ,dream states and nicotene, It was also a point which shifted me away from Dev Psych and looking for one-to-one correspondence between brain anatomy and purpose, and moved me towards Functional anatomy, from which eventually led me to Practopoeisis for a solid AI model, which is functional rather than Jeff Hawkin’s 1-to-1 anatomical correspondence in his AI work. [both valuable but different schema entirely]

I remember we had conversations on flow states and brain function in the past, or at least a common interest in both.

I don’t think I ever asked: Is there a particular model of mind that appeals to you or that you are drawn towards?

Examples may be computational theory of mind, or connectionism.. or situated cognition….
