Just a thought, if even physics can be shown to be essentially chemistry, and chemistry is all about reaction, then is it not reasonable to assume that this is a fundamental principle in operation here, the basis of being, the basis of consciousness, and the bases of all behaviours. What do you think folks, anyone have a different slant of this?:a-thought:
I've always believed this to be the case.
There's a quality to human perception; one I like to call "arrogant presumption". Most notably - and in this case - its manifest by the notion that says, "... if I don't understand how it works, it must be magic!". That's not to say it *can't* be, but I digress....
Yes, I think it highly likely that consciousness
- this thing about which we incessantly babble - is a result of chemistry and the dynamics of neuron interaction
(perhaps on the quantum level). There's a synergy, I think, that's created; that product being "consciousness" (this, on a strictly physical level).
I *think* this was where you were headed, Boagie, chemistry as a basis for the quantifiable consciousness (?)
If not, someone shoot me cuz I just showed my hand :whoa-dude:
