All sound pragmatic statements stellamonika ... firmly rooted in what the average novice thinker ... myself included ... knows about how our six senses function within the brain.

Neuroscience seems to be confirming many and at the same time opening up new horizons where much uncertainty prevails.

Heard a new phrase yesterday in the video I posted in another OP ... "the brain recruits circuitry ..."

Immediately the thought popped into my head ... Huh! ... the brain functions like the military!

Not that my reaction to the phrase "the brain recruits circuitry" has any merit ... though might support the thesis Amorphos posted ... "Konflict as a root philosophy"
"Do not be influenced by the importance of the writer, and whether his learning be great or small; but let the love of pure truth draw you to read. Do not inquire, “Who said this?” but pay attention to what is said”
