if there were no need for 'engineers from the quantum plenum' then we should not have any unanswered scientific questions.

After the conversation about attention on the 'What's on your mind thread?' this popped up in my YouTube feed.



I thought it would be more useful to start a brain thread rather than trying to find the original discussion.

Interesting distinction with "Covert Attention". That must be on steroids for me. I pick up every conversation in a noisy place without even trying.

Not sure how you can make the same distinction with computers, though. They're either paying attention, or not paying attention. Maybe something quantum computing can tackle...

Thank you, I couldn't face trawling through the threads!

Came across this short video on Youtube on the debunking of certain "neuromyths", as she calls them.

I liked that one where he talks about the methods of prediction go "wrong" and you get visual hallucinations that other's do not see. I get that because of when I went through psychosis, that is exactly how it appeared. The "predictions" I had were not the same as other's in more ways than one.

The topic of 'left vs. right' came up in Hermes' Puzzle thread, so I thought I'd leave this TED-ed video here (came out just yesterday).

Thanks for the video, Arturo, that was very interesting. I was using the terms mainly as convenient labels for two ways to see that puzzle. These shortcuts in terminology can save many words in a discussion, although I probably should have used the quotes: "left" and "right".

Well dammit Silver.  I am ambidextrous so I wanted to believe that Both sides of my brain were working in unison such that my brain was better than most.  Oh Well! Live and learn. :grrr:
