Default Re: Discussion of CCWAA, Vol. 7, Chapt. II & III (Symptom Selection & Psychoanalysis)

Trevor and George, another speculative perspective on the influence of the life style on brain chemistry would be to contemplate the fictional final goal as a hologram-like structure generated by laser light energy. This all-encompassing image would then influence every brain cell, providing an "explanation" for the unity of thinking, feeling, action, and somatic responses--each cell reflecting a tiny (fuzzy) but complete mirror of the whole. Granted, this is taking broad metaphoric liberty, but doesn't science rely on many fictional constructs and models? At the speed of light, it would be hard to determine whether chemistry, thought, or feeling came first, or whether they actually happened simultaneously. (Perhaps, this idea was triggered because I've had too much coffee this morning!)
