I think I get the analogy. You were saying the brain acts as a kind of punitive government structure, creating conditions of depression and anxiety in some people, right? I was just, somewhat sarcastically, pointing out the origins of my brain's "government" (the way my mother treated me growing up). And I was just extending the analogy to how the "brain governments" of larger populations could be shaped depending on the conditions under which they live/were raised.
