Hijack from Schizophrenia and The Dreaming Brain

Recommended Posts

Sir Roger Penrose has been doing some work on developing a mathematical model for how the brain actually works.  He suggest that consciousness itself may exist in a state of superposition which is actually in the realm of quantum uncertainty that theoretical physics does not clearly define.  Our physical brains may actually just be interpreting quantum weirdness when it comes into contact with energy to give us the illusion that we are self aware. 

It has really got me thinking that if that is true, then there is a part of our minds that we cannot normally access that can obtain information with a spooky action at a distance throughout space and time.  Our brains do filter out a lot of useless information during our dreams, and maybe people develop schizophrenia from their brains not filtering out this kind of information.  It would open the door for a scientific basis for any hooky idea about the mind having any type of extrasensory perception.  If you follow along those lines, it could mean that the person may have actually experienced their schizophrenic episode in another dimension or universe or possible future or past.  Their brain just failed to filter out that information during a traumatic experience of their doppelganger.

Our dreams, for a healthy person, may actually just be an ancient relic of a previous state of the universe where spatial and temporal tensors put too much stress on their eigenstates, that their brain just filtered out.

The word "actually" is a bit of a stretch there. He has some way-out ideas, not accepted by most neurologists (or even most physicists). I would be very surprised if that has any relationship to how the brain "actually" works.

I doubt even Penrose would go along with that.

I think any model of how the brain actually works that doesn't conform to how it likely evolved is considerably less that reliable.  Everything I understand about brain function and it's various efferent responses (e.g., thought, consciousness, dreaming, etc...) is informed by the remarkably clear path of its evolution contiguously suggested by its functional development from spinal cord to cerebrum.  Self-awareness is essentially an interpretive response to sensory stimuli arising from an integration of that stimuli with the stored memories we've amassed through life experience.

Mind is the environment of cognitive activity within the brain that arises from brain function. A mind is quantified by a brain capacity to integrate divergent sensory  information with memory experiences through a neural process that produces behaviors independent of instinct.  This behavioral independence describes an ability to engage proactive over reactive behaviors.  Our brain produces two states of cognitive activity with conscious being one and unconscious, as suggested by states of dreaming, being the other.  The basis for any extraordinary cognition or abnormality between brain states can be explained by a precise understanding of our brain's functional matrix as its evolution has programmed.

There's no action at a distance.

Wow! That is a NEW* idea.
