I agree with you, Scott. We are acquiring knowledge about the brain at an astonishing pace. Our ability to assimilate this knowledge lags far behind. Maybe artificial intelligence will help us to figure things out.

Your post reminded me of an analogy that I like. It's been said that Napoleon could travel no faster than Julius Caesar, on land or on water. In the 200 years since Napoleon's death, the world has changed a great deal more than it did in the 1,800 years between Julius Caesar's time and Napoleon's. And the world continues to change at an ever-increasing pace -- far faster than our ability to adapt to these changes.

I appreciate your kind words about me. For many years, you have been a pillar of Psycho-Babble.

I think you'll find this discussion about the brain interesting:
