MIND AND BRAIN

WHEN CONSIDERING THE MIND/MATTER DUALISM IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT OUR BRAIN - e.g. THROUGH ACTION OF THE NEOCORTICO ADRENAL LOOP- TRANSFERS "IMMATERIAL PHENOMENA" SUCH AS LIGHT AND SOUND INTO MATTER LIKE HORMONES AND NEURO-TRANSMITTERS.

IN THIS -ULTIMATELY HOMOEOSTATIC- PROCESS THE "TOTAL BRAIN" IS INVOLVED IN SPLIT SECOND DYNAMIC INTERACTIONS OF POTENTIALLY BILLIONS AND BILLIONS OF LIVE MICRO ORGANISMS IN THE BRAIN, INTERCONNECTED BY TRILLIONS AND TRILLIONS OF PATHWAYS AND FREQUENTLY SPANNING LIGHT-YEARS IN DISTANCE AND AEONS IN TIME OF -AMONG OTHER THINGS- SELECTED LEARNING AND CONDITIONING RESIDUES OF EVOLUTION.

IN THIS SENSE OUR BRAIN COULD PERHAPS BE REGARDED AS A "MIND / MATTER INTERFACE" RATHER THEN A MATERIAL PHENOMENON EXCLUSIVELY.

THIS MAY EXPLAIN WHY SOME INDIVIDUALS (OR EVEN GROUPS) SOMETIMES REFER TO BRAIN WHY OTHERS IN THE SAME CONTEXT WOULD REFER TO MIND.

NONETHELESS IT IS IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER THAT PERHAPS NO ONE WOULD SERIOUSLY ARGUE THAT A DEAD ORGANISM STILL HAS A HEART, A BRAIN, KIDNEYS AND OTHER ORGANS BUT NO LONGER A MIND.

THIS IS WHY IN THIS WEBSITE WE WILL CONSIDER "BRAIN" A MATERIAL PHENOMENON AND "MIND" AN IMMATERIAL PHENOMENON, A CONSTRUCT.

WE BELIEVE IT IS A MISTAKE LEADING TO NEEDLESS CONFUSION NOT TO DO SO.
