Here’s an interesting read.
That’s the title of the page, and it raises an interesting question. Is there a distinction between “you” and “your brain”?
The title of the article is “The brain… it makes you think. Doesn’t it? Are we governed by unconscious processes? Neuroscience believes so – but isn’t the human condition more complicated than that? Two experts offer different views”
I didn’t know that neuroscience could believe anything. You learn something every day, I guess.
And to answer the question in the title of this post …
We don’t have a strong grasp of what reality “out there” even is, because we detect such an unbearably small slice of it. That small slice is called the umwelt.
