Do you have any idea how many atoms there are in a single neuron?
Thank you, do you even know what 'atom' means ? An indivisible entity that it. That's a model
By the way, I can't figure out the relationship between (physics) atom , and intelligence
Um... I'm not sure who you're addressing here.
Anyhoo, I was thinking about this a lot lately. More precisely, I was reading an "article" about alien lifeforms, and lifeforms that are not based on electromagnetism as ours (chemistry), but on gravity, or strong force or weak force. Could a whole galaxy become "intelligent"? What does it mean anyway? The best definition I can think of is the ability to manipulate the environment in "unusual" ways (what the fuck "unusual" means?). At least we could detect that. But how can a galaxy manipulate the environment in an unusual way, yet, obeying the laws of physics?
Sometimes I feel that being "intelligent" and this whole "soul" stuff is about defying these laws in a way. Free will seems to be defiyng the laws of physics. But that can simply be an illusion, because according to the principle I mentioned earlier, the brain cannot model itself accurately.
random rambling is over.
Excuse me, i was mistaken about who answers
