Re: What Neurons Really Are

If you want to explain things only by arrays of neurons then it seems that you want to proceed from neural networks theory, what is by itself questionnable, and 14 billion neurons (or even if we include astrocytes) are not likely to be enough to store everything what man can remember when every one is just like logical element in electronics. Therefore I think the processing must happen inside the neuron and it's important how it happens. What bothers me is that I'm not sure that the structures of microtubules cannot implement my absolutely dynamic systems, the other question is whether they can do it fast enough. But then again, it is also not excluded that they may be involved in Bohm's implicate order. It also often happens in nature that the processes on higher level reflect the processes on a lower level (unfortunately AI people etc don't understand the philosophical term "reflect" and talk about mimicry etc instead). And, who really said that neurons cannot have connections with other things what are not neurons. By the way, I don't deny the pear project (Princeton University) results concerning the random event generators either, these were scientifically rigorous experiments and likely indicate that quantum processes are involved in neurons in a way or another.
