Don't do any qualification in biochemistry, biology, neurobiology, anatomy, or anything related. Conduct one experiment on decision time. Call yourself Sam Harris, and accept your neuroscience PhD. The end.

How does the energy signal 'know' where to flow? Obviously it does, but how exactly does it do it? For example, spread the brain out like a map. The towns and cities represent the brain cells and the roads and highways represent the interconnections between those brain cells. A vehicle traveling between one or more towns and/or cities represents a coherent thought. How exactly does the 'unconscious' vehicle 'know' what path to take to complete a specific journey? A higher intelligence would have to tell the unconscious vehicle what path to take to complete a specific journey. But, that is a 'specific journey' or coherent thought in and of itself. So, how exactly does our brain think a coherent thought before it thinks that coherent thought? How exactly do thoughts think? What is the specific 'higher intelligence' that controls the 'unconscious vehicle' or energy signal to follow a certain path in the brain to achieve a specific journey or thought? Consider also, that at every intersection or juncture, something would have to control the chemical flow between the neurons to have the energy signal flow a certain way. I once heard it said that as the energy flows in the brain, it strengthens that connection, kind of like water flowing down a hill due to gravity. But then, why isn't the brain stuck on thinking only the same thought over and over and over again as each time that thought is thought, it would ingrain that thought deeper into the brain? But obviously, that is not how reality appears to be. Or at least from my side of my 'consciousness' that I am supposedly experiencing. You might be experiencing reality differently than I, assuming of course that 'you' and 'I' even actually exist. It's possible that only 'I' exist and you all are just a figment of my imagination. I don't perceive reality to be that way, but then again, how could I ever truly know for sure? And for 'you', do 'I' even actually exist or am 'I' just a figment of your imagination? Or then again, maybe there is a 'higher intelligence' imagining both of us imagining each other? But also, 'if' there is a 'higher intelligence' behind the very thoughts I think, that thinks the very thoughts before I think them, then do I even have my own thoughts and own freewill? How could I if I couldn't even think my own thoughts? And if the 'higher intelligence' is a part of my own brain, (let's say my sub-conscious mind or even unconscious mind), then how exactly does it think thoughts before my conscious mind thinks those thoughts? And if those thoughts can already be thought before I consciously think them, then why even have a consciousness that can think thoughts? Obviously, thoughts could be thought somehow, someway, without all those pesky neurons and interconnections getting in the way cluttering up the map. So, how exactly do thoughts think? Do I even think my own thoughts? What exactly is the 'higher intelligence' that thinks my thoughts before 'I' think those thoughts? Do 'I' even actually exist to even think my own thoughts? If so, then how does it all work. Tell me your thoughts, if in fact you actually exist and even actually have your own thoughts to think and could convey those thoughts to my thoughts. At least so I currently think, if I even actually exist and am thinking these thoughts that I appear to be thinking.

Reply Eric Dew says: May 12, 2019 at 11:50 pm Curious as to what the positive ions are. A negative ion is generally just some electrons, although I guess a negatively ionized atom could work as well. I'm just curious as to the size of the ion versus the openings, the "pump" and so on. Is it an ion of an atom, or a compound? Also, what is being sent from one neuron to another via the dendrites? And why? And what's the point of passing that "information" amongst the neurons?
