Strange as it may seem,
I thought this thread was more philosophy than mathematics. My bad.
I'm awed and fascinated by the marvelous and mysterious ways of how the brain can process external stimuli of all kinds.
And of course I am a great fan of Anil Seth who distinguishes mental perception as controlled and uncontrolled "hallucinations", and makes a persuasive case along with some remarkable examples from personal experience.
This is why I am intrigued by Hameroff's and Penrose's proposition that the micro-tubules in the brain are actually tiny little quantum computers which are able to process and translate all forms of energetic "information" as specific kinds of "bings" (wave collapse phenomena).
And Hameroff's scientific explanation of the actual wave collapse in the micro-tubules of the brain.
There are some surprising philosophical implications in these viewpoints.
And biological. Much to think about, and thank you.
Maybe that's why some fungi and some plants do that, to protect their children.
We just happened to stumble on those that have similar neuroreceptors to the one we rely on for every life.
Parties are a special occasion, and you need lifeguards if you're going beyond the breakwater. I've been a passenger and a pilot when I was older, but I'm younger than that now.
