'This is why waves and synchronicity are so important: there is no central control ! What we experience as ourselves is just the global activity of the brain as a whole.'
'But something somewhere must be in control. I mean, who am I ? Is the brain just a machine ?'
'Oh, this is a question scientists and philosophers have been asking for a while. It all comes down to the so-called dualism problem: Is my mind something else than the brain ? Or is the mind just a product of my brain ?'
There are no ghosts, there is no soul ! The idea of yourself as "someone" inhabiting your brain is nothing but an illusion; a reflection that the brain has of its own body and actions... Maybe this is the real secret of the human brain: It's a great storyteller.
