Hi again, Alex,

I don't know what happened to me writing that last response. I must have gotten into "unattended operation" mode and just dumped out what I was thinking without addressing your comments. That's those laws of physics for you.

Let me try again.

>>>What is unknown about consciouseness besides that billions of neurons turning on and off?>On = conscious, off = unconscious>Each neuron (and all network) works as physics (=math) prescribes, any neirobiology text is full of details. E/m pulses carrying information from neuron to neuron, amplitude-frequency modulation, floating threshhold, non-linear amplification, positive and negative feedbacks, etc - what is "divine" about this?>Complexity?>>Earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, tornadoes, even ordinary rain - are NOT well predictable phenomena>>So, everything goes according to mathematical equations which we happen to call "natural laws">So, no "drivers" or "calculators" or "thinkers" are needed to make events in universe happen.
