The “reward center” of the brain. I find this extremely curious. It’s always assumed the brain evolved, over time grew more and more complex, then eventually created the mind.
But the nature of the interaction between body and the mind, to me, seems to suggest it be the other way around entirely. It’s not the brain evolved and created the mind, it’s that the mind was there and the brain evolved around it.
All along the way there was this will that was in control of the body’s actions. The body has to coax action out of the self to get what it needs. So it evolved ways to do so.
This would suggest there’s something to suggest “life” isn’t just a biological machine. It’s a physical form that enables a will that was there all along.
Thoughts? I’ve attempted to look into what those in the know say about this, but the general consensus seems to be that it all happened the other way around. This does not compute in my mind.
