noSoul - Values for story (14)
Value #
[[[[[images/underConstruction.gif|(this text under construction)]]]]] One of my major sources of happiness in life, and I have noSoul to thank for. Not like I wasn't in love with the guitar since the beginning of time. But I have tried talking to it many times, it it never responded nicely. The first time after noSoul, it was almost too easy. I saw Stanley Jordan's instructional master sessions video one more time, just to remind myself that he is one of the only ones I encountered who speaks noSoul directly from his soul, probably without even knowing it, which I would dare not claim. I only refer to his didactic system for practicing with no mistakes, which I probably even improve a bit. This improvement, albeit ever so slights, hints to me that Stanly didn't know noSoul, conscious or not. It goes like this, learning a single new rhythm is very simple. All you have to do is follow Stanley's instruction, but with extreme obedience and without neglect. You will know the rhythm, quickly, and you will have learned it without having made but one or two tiny mistakes through the entire process, mistakes that you are likely to never hit on stage. Stanley's system works so well without any modifications, it feels almost like magic. You put your fingers on the fretboard and say to yourself: I wanna do this little thing which I have never done before. The time it will take you to learn a new magic trick is very small, maybe a less than a half an hour for a four note measure to become fully automatic in your fingers at comfortable playing speed or better. But if you neglect if the minutest of his instructions, it might take a day to do the same. His video is so casual its not inviting you to be obedient, which present a possible 'this doesn't work at' result if you are careless. With noSoul, you do not need a soul to be obedient to Stanley. It simply makes noSense not to obey pedantically, causing you self harm in your learning speed and so your playing quality later. I don't even like his music and never listen to him, except in this instructional video and Eleanor Rigby which I came across for my Beatles collection. My claimed improvement from conscious noSoul awareness is actually quite minor, and while I feel confident about it, I have no way by now to measure its success, since my confidence combined with the love of guitar playing, will not let me go back to lesser quality playing for the purpose of verifying this system is at all helpful. My body and brain are the lab for noSoul but only in the the same way that Nature was a lab for Darwin to conduct experiments regarding the theory of evolution without placing any test tubes in his garden. (he did that too, I'm sure). Gauss said that collecting statistics is true-representing enough for all practical purposes, and no further test tubes are necessary to prove a scientific theory. I just played the Hunger rhythm about a thousand times in the past hour. From a noSoul perspective, this is like a kid trying to paint a blue dot over and over with semi translucent paint, each time making a deeper impression upon the paper. If he errs and put some red paint, each new attempt will have some red paint in it. This is because muscle memory unit, are not memory like we have in computers at all. I just want to think of them as the flip flop of the brain because it is a convenient model. But there is no such thing as free and available space in human memory, just like it never runs out, and for the same reason: A brain [[Flip-flop (electronics)|flip-flop]] is created by the same muscle process it drives. At first you make a conscious thought, if you are human, and it takes a very long time, relatively speaking, to act in accordance. But you acted, and so the muscle sequence created a new flip-flop or several, and that means you will have to consciously think less next time to do the same, but at that second time,while thinking less, the net impression left in the flip-flops is better and more accurate, mostly because there are by now twice as many flip-flops busy sharing their efforts making you play better tunes, and by some shear logic you know from Darwin these structures were developed a long time ago for the purpose of bettering the chances of primitive beings in their struggle for existence. My improvement, if at all, and if you care about guitars, is as follows: Stanly uses stress as the focus point, and by minimizing stress during practice, which is easy to do without a stage set or a recording, you can avoid more mistakes. All this is true and works well. With noSoul, you can still eliminate more of the few mistakes that you will inevitably make every once in while. Train yourself for an automatic response which is quite opposite what your are supposed to do on stage. Simply stop playing immediately as you hear a mistake of yours, and usually you can even feel the stress about to make it occur, and stop even earlier. But do stop solid, immediately, then wait a while, then start over, just like you may have used to in the early days. Why is this important, and what's with noSoul? A muscle memory chain of musical notes works by correlating each note to the next, in conjunction with listening and integrating a collection of systems quite a bit more complex the the minimal requirements displayed by the noSoul model. While this can be deduced obviously from experience while practicing, noSoul guided guitar training makes use of this fact. If the error is inside the sequence, chances are it will be much better remembered, and so repeated. My experience tells me that using this method made significant improvements in my leaning speed and leaning abilities. So much so that even when recording, I prefer to give up a recording to prevent the first mistake from ever being registered in the flip-flops. My single most critical error is a single note I am playing from my first flip-flop sequence ever, way before noSoul but with Stanley's no mistake philosophy already well absorbed in my subconsciousness and fingers: I play this one on the first string way too loud, and noSoul has yet to tell me how to correct this flaw. It sort of improves with time, but mostly because I am learning that volume can also be controlled by the distance from the fret, as opposed to the power of the hammer, and so I can correct the mistake by learning new motions to lower the volume, in those places where this mistake lingers. Its like that boy, trying to paint that blue dot with red, but blue is so strong it takes many layers of red before the blue is unnoticeable, and it will never go away forever, but maybe you can make it so that you are the only one alive to tell about it, because only you can still hear the corrections of the mistake, because only you have spent so many hours in conversations with that particular error flip-flop community in your brain. Quoting Stanley Jordan speaking noSoul straight from the heart, describing the mistake/stress Pavlovian association, comparing practicing to the performance, and questions: "How does my mind know that this is the time to get it wrong? when I was at home I got it right" He gives a detailed answer. Brain Muscles It is interesting to see how brain muscles are composed into task groups by experimenting with the guitar. Turns out a sequence to be remembered has a large starting section not at all related to the muscle activity, and it is the bigger part of the reusable sequence to be remembered. This I deduce from the following experience: I first played with the left hand only, for more than a year. Only then I started playing with the right hand. For this, I was looking for new simple melodies again. Trying a new melody with the right hand is almost as hard as it was with the left hand in the beginning. With the left hand its of course very easy. What is most interesting however, is that my right hand can learn the sequence much quicker by having the left hand first know it really well. Then the right hand seems to only need some fine tuning in the positioning of the fingers on the strings - just the part that comes natural for the left hand and is the direct muscle control part of the sequence. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muscle_memory http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Procedural_memory http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Declarative_memory http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memory_consolidation 1
[[[Nekko|Nekko]]] is my cat. Nekko is diagnosed with Feline Hyperesthesia syndrome. FHS is classified as a seizure disorder. It is a mental illness. There is debate on the internet regarding its hereditary qualities. Immediately upon discovery of the actual disease in question, I scanned the internet and read in scrutiny all accounts I could find regarding this illness. I found there is obvious though not universal correlation between FHS and the type of cat. Eastern asian cats tend to have it more often than others. Also, I found that captive cats who were taken from nature as adults, also have this mental disorder sometimes. FHS is therefore clearly hereditary, it occurs in nature and it is [[[etfk/msdbCat/title/perfection|perfect]]]. Multiple accounts on the internet confirmed this perfection clearly. All FHS cats, all over the world, of any race, posses the exact same set of FHS identifying symptoms, most of which happen to be very peculiar and easily identifiable. This also implies that in nature, or at least in some ancient time of the history of cats in nature, FHS has - or at least had - its merits. Evolution can not create a disease (to perfection), unless it has some upside which betters somehow its posessors chances of survival, at least some of the time. It is simple for this purpose, to think of FHS as a virtual territory of dominance of sorts: FHS will survive better then its absence in some circumstances or environments or territories. While the vets are clueless about treating this illness, this information is useful. Learning the advantages of FHS can help its treatment. The advantages are [[[etfk/msdbCat/title/perfection|perfect]]], and should be easily identifiable. In [[[Nekko|summary of the above]]], I can just briefly state that Nekko is allergic to reality in various degrees, and is therefore paranoid, exercising behavior much resembling multiple personalities during FHS episodes. Identifying these individual conflicting behaviors distinctly, is where noSoul helps, and were treatment is aided by noSoul. Her oversensitivity can be harnessed, both for bettering our communication and enabling me to better study FHS, as well as for training her to deal with the illness herself. The conclusions, thus far, are about as follows: FHS is similar to epilepsy in its motivational behavior. The seizures cause much agitation, and Nekko attempts to attack the part of the body that seems to generate the seisures. This condition causes much fear, and as such, hostility towards any surprise. The main treatment I took from ADHD treatment for children. I simply hold her, making sure I am sensitive to any involuntary muscles inside her body, those that cause the agitation mentioned. Over time, Nekko has learnt that this type of holding can prevent her agitation, and through a Pavlovian response, it automatically does, even if I do nothing else. In more extreme occasion she will be treated with Valium, and experience shows that the Valium takes effect immediately, some 10 minutes before the pill is actually dissolved. This Pavlovian response I call the placebo effect, and was tested many times and never worked when a real Valium is not present. She seems to know the difference perfectly well. The combined treatment is very powerful: By early identification of even the minutest symptom, I can treat her with a minimal amount of Valium. While the pill is dissolving, she is already relaxed, not letting the episode develop any further. In less recent times, this would cause a need for more Valium in many cases. By now, I can judge very well the amount of Valium needed, as it is automatically compensated by the placebo effect. Followed immediately by ADHD style holding, I can gradually judge her agitation level to fall below that which (from older experience I can tell) the Valium is sufficient to calm down. The net result is judged by the amount of Valium given, on average, over long periods. An average episode occurs about three times daily (2008) and average 15-minutes while Valiums of 2.5 mg are given about once in 5 episodes. About one in 5 of those (1/25) are calmed down after 5 or 7.5 mg. Before the noSoul guided treatment, episodes lasted 1 to 3 hours on average, about twice daily, with Valiums ranging from 5 mg and up, with rare cases of up to 50 mg in just a few hours. (cat metabolism is different and with veterinary guidance, the maximum allowed is 20mg per kg per day. Nekko weights 4.5 kg). [[[[[images/Nekko.jpg|Nekko]]]]] 1
[[Isaac Asimov|Asimov]], in [[[[theora.com/guitar/IRobot/20080308-IRobot.mp3|I, robot]]]], deals with issues of morality and the cause and effect relationship between human psychology and [[[Reggy|morality]]]. The cushion of science fiction, and the seemingly purely logical view as would be expected from a robot, gives room for much education. [[[[[images/asimov.jpg]]]]] [[[[[images/Irobot.jpg]]]]] Asimov describes how the brain of anyone with presumed morals, must inherently be with no soul, for the reason of inherent variety of moral goals, and conflicts. Moral conflicts arrive from conflicting motivations. When embedded emotionally in the subconsciousness, such motivations are developed over the course of life by individual subsystems. [[[[[images/positronicBrain.jpg]]]]] Analogous somewhat to a centipede - imagine a [[Tabula rasa|Tabula rasa]] collecting legs over the course of life,each with its own agenda. Said agenda, the ability to embed experience in the subconsciousness, and later act upon it - is the process worth inspection, from the noSoul perspective. [[[[[images/centipede.jpg]]]]] [[[[[images/MechanicCentipede.jpg]]]]] The development of this ability is part of the [[[etfk|evolution]]] of man, to a large degree, but also that of the high order mammals in the several dozen million years before. [[[[[images/PavlovDog.jpg]]]]] The perfected portions are the mammalian, for the most part. The yet to be [[[etfk/msdbSearchText/title/perfect|perfect]]]ed parts, are where psychology rules. [[[[[images/Freud.jpg]]]]] Understanding the parts, how they work, and why they do not always necessary coincide in their primary goal - as might be thought to be implied by evolution theory - is the subject of noSoul.

שבת אחת אני בצהריים אצל האינסטלטור שעבדתי אצלו כשוליייה חצי שנה, ובקָפֶה אני שואל אותו: אֲלֶן, אנחנו אינסטלטורים! מה לנו ולכלכליסט? המדריך הסוֹקרָטֶי לאינסטלציה מסביר: ומאיפוא אדע מי הקליינט הבא שאתמול עשה אקזיט בהיי טק הזה שלכם, ומחר מתקשר אלי? 1
A muscle memory unit, from a noSoul perspective and definition, is lack of better words to describe the a basic building block of the brain. A collection of such building blocks will be required for a single identifiable process generating locomotion. It is easy to think of this collection as a sequence, ending with some building block commanding the locomotion of a muscle. Disconnect, for the purpose of this theory, the locomotion end part of the chain of building blocks, and you have a portion composed only of pure brain activity, much like imagined locomotion in a dream. It is easy for example to think of a sense of balance device as a simple composition of a bubble cell with half water half air, surrounded by sensory organs that can tell the difference between air and water. Yet part of the composition is the brain sequence that analyses the information. This could be a simple Pavlovian response composed from relatively few building blocks, which correlates the movement of the water in the device, with a response of some kind (void of locomotion), which is registered in the brain, later only to be correlated with other instances of the same, for comparison and re-evaluation, and still reinforcement of the same knowledge. It is easy to understand from this view why for example, a sense of balance can be developed through the course of evolution, completely separate from its owners abilty to use it to any specific capacity. As long as it has usefulness in some obscure way, its quality will be ever increasing with generations. Whether animals or mankind kind will also learn to walk with it in due course of their gene development - thereby having balance based instinctive locomotion responses - or will they have to learn this trait time and again after birth, is - therefore - a separate issue.

A view of human psychology as driven by undesired forces of evolution might be clearer with an illustration. The [[Vermiform_appendix|appendix]] does not have a known purpose for its existence. Since every part or organ must have had a survival reason to come to existence, and if it now has no such reason, than it must have had one in the past for which it came to existence and had a function important for the survival of its owner. This was a long time ago, and initially, this organ was miniscule in structure and function, yet slightly beneficial. Over many generations of variation of this initially miniscule addition, nature selected the most beneficial [[[etfk/msdbSearchText/title/variation|variation]]]s, and this organ became potent in its function, (albeit yet unknown to science). This happened in some ancient organism, the first one to have the original form of the appendix. Later, changes in environmental needs made this organ useless. While it may have been near [[[etfk/msdbSearchText/title/perfect|perfect]]] for its function at the time, its function had just become useless for survival. The minute variations that still do occur with this organ, will no longer be keenly preserved and improved by natural selection, but rather ignored. In time this organ becomes rudimentary, and today we call it the appendix. But the appendix is fatal, in some cases. Being that it is otherwise useless, if evolution has had its chance at it, it would have totally eliminated it. It did not, because it hasn't had enough time. It is not clear if our first ancestor who could care less about this organ existed 20 million years ago, or 200 million years ago. In any case, there was not enough time from when the appendix became a sometimes fatal organ till now. Animals in nature always strive to obtain food. Any triggered response that would correlate the presence of food with some other perceptible information from the surroundings is beneficial for survival. Natural selection will seize on it, and further develop its qualities, in some cases causing automatic responses to enhance the efficiency of consuming the food. It is simple to see how the drooling in advance of the presence of food can make an animal more efficient in consuming it, thereby giving it advantage over its completion in the [[[etfk/msdbSearchText/story/struggle for existence|struggle for existence]]] Let us look again at Pavlov's dog. [[[[[images/PavlovDog.jpg]]]]] The food-bell response is not necessary for survival at all, especially in the case of Pavlov's Dog, who most clearly survived, as attested by the experiment, without the presence of food. Such is not the case with the Orangutan, where any small variation in this respect might be critical, but indeed such is in fact the case with man. This difference between man and the Orangutan in this respect is important. It comes from the fact that the Orangutan is in a time period of its development where it is striving to survive, while mankind is flourishing. [[[[[images/21st Century Schizoid Man.jpg|21st Century Schizoid Man]]]]] [[[[[images/Orangutan.jpg|Orangutan]]]]] Since noSoul is concerned with psychology, the organ in question is the human brain, or more precisely, the parts of the brain that are human. (no specific definition is attempted). Animals in nature (as opposed to domesticated animals), do not have emotional problems, as long as they are [[[etfk/msdbSearchText/title/perfect|perfect]]], and most are, especially in this respect. From this is implied that emotional problems belong to the human part of the brain. The human brain, much like the hands of the [[[etfk/msdbSearchText/title/orangutan|Orangutan]]] was in development from some 2,000,000 years ago, and until some 100,000 years ago. At that point evolution stopped its selection work. Not because mankind became perfect, but because it started an expansion stage, where mankind doesn't die enough for natural selection to destroy all illnesses. Unlike the orangutan - which will unfortunatly become extinct long before evolution has had the chance to perfect its hands - mankind is flourishing, ever increasing in numbers. The evolution stage of the human brain is mid-development, which stopped about 100,000 years ago, when we first called the new creature - man. From an evolutionary perspective, this is not a problem at all: In time the geometrical growth rate will cause mankind to overfill the planet, and death will come plenty. From then on, over many more generations, natural selection will perfect the human brain, at a high death price. Just like anything else in nature. From a psychological perspective, mankind is frozen in a snapshot split second of an evolutionary time period, where the brain is in some "constant" stage, and happens to have a lot of very complex [[[OriginOfSpecies/msdbSearchText/story/appendix|appendices]]] in it, and they sometimes cause problems. [[[[[images/drool.jpg|drool]]]]] [[[[[images/appendix.jpg|appendix]]]]] 1
In a [[superorganism|superorganism]] like the ant colony or a [[bee hive|bee hive]], all the members serve one purpose: the survival of the entire [[organism|organism]]. [[[[[images/organism.jpg]]]]] [[[[[images/superOrganism.jpg]]]]] [[[[[images/brain5.gif]]]]] [[[[[images/antColony.jpg]]]]] [[[[[images/termiteMound.jpg]]]]] [[[[[images/beehive.jpg]]]]] From the standpoint of [[[etfk|evolution]]], this is similar to a story told by [[Issac Asimov|Issac Asimov]] in [[I, Robot|I, Robot]]. It tells of a super robot who is the manager of six other robots. In its brain construction - so discovers the hero of the story, a psychologists of robots - the six robots are merly his fingers, and the whole complex is thus one single robot. [[[[[images/MechanicCentipede.jpg]]]]] Genetically, this is how the ant colony works: The ant colony as a whole is an evolutionary indivudal unit, living and perishing, competing with other ant colonies, while the gene complex of the ant colony is carried across generations collectively, representing the many casts of ants each with its own function. The ant colony is [[[etfk/msdbCat/title/perfection|perfect]]], having been perfected over many generations of evolution. [[[[[images/ant.jpg|ant]]]]] The brain subsystems are not nearly as perfected. The ants in the skull may have billions of very complex casts, while real ants just a handful. This huge difference is not important. [[[[[images/neuron.gif]]]]] [[[[[images/synapse.gif]]]]] [[[[[images/LoveHeart.jpg]]]]] Mankind is in a very early stage of evolution. Two million years of very high death rates to create a man from a primate, another 100,000 to maintain it about as is, and in the past 12,000 years we have been slowly even degrading a bit. The human brain is in an initial state of evolving, it is new on earth, and very young. Like with the hand of the [[[etfk/msdbCat/title/orangutan|Orangutan]]], the systems in the brain have high variance, perfectly ready for high death rates to effect rapid [[[etfk/msdbCat/title/natural selection|natural selection]]]. [[[[[images/Orangutan.jpg]]]]] [[[[[images/apeMan.jpg]]]]] Every species goes through such a phase, with respect to every organ, structure and mental capacity. In the case of mankind, there have not been death rates sufficient for natural selection for the past 100,000 years. The subsystems of the human brain have yet to be selected by the forces of evolution, and this will begin to happen when the planet can literally no longer hold the population, which is infinity for all practical purposes. [[[[[images/Earth.jpg]]]]] Meanwhile we will have mental problems. High variance means the skull has too many ants that don't quite know how to get along with one another and can not always agree on how to better serve the body owning the skull they live in. The body - the vehicle that will transmit their genes into the future - if they do enough not to let it perish. [[[[[images/humanBody.gif]]]]] [[[[[images/ant.jpg|ant]]]]] 1
Man has no soul. [[[[[images/underConstruction.gif|(A Theory In Developement)]]]]] By soul, I mean, in the most non-religious sense, the unity of one's individuality. This theory claims that there is no such soul. Rather, the skull is a case for a collection of separate systems, each individually having been created and developed by fine gradual changes over many generations, with each step for each system separately improving the system's task of preserving its host body. noSoul implies unlimited multiple personalities, which normally know about each other and are in collaboration serving the livelihood of the host body. Man has No Soul is a collection of thoughts arrising from the [[[OriginOfSpecies|theory of evolution]]]. "In the distant future I see open fields for far more important researches. Psychology will be based on a new foundation, that of the necessary acquirement of each mental power and capacity by gradation" - Charles Darwin [[[[[images/amoeba.jpg]]]]] [[[[[images/fish.jpg]]]]] [[[[[images/Reptile.jpg]]]]] [[[[[images/wildlife.jpg]]]]] [[[[[images/orangutan2.jpg]]]]] [[[[[images/apeMan.jpg]]]]] [[[[[images/Darwin.jpg]]]]] [[[[[images/Pavlov.gif]]]]] [[[[[images/PavlovDog.jpg]]]]] [[[[[images/skull.gif]]]]][[[[[images/wired.jpg]]]]] [[[[[images/Cheetah.jpg|Cheetah]]]]] [[[[[images/etfk.jpg|Evolution Theory For Kids]]]]] 1
Pavlov has discovered that if he rings a bell every time he feeds his dog, then the bell ring will in time cause his dog to drool, without any food. [[[[[images/Pavlov.gif]]]]] [[[[[images/bell.jpg]]]]] [[[[[images/PavlovDog.jpg]]]]] [[[[[images/drool.jpg]]]]] Science ignored him, mostly. [[[[[images/science.jpg]]]]] It is insulting to compare human psychology to that of a dog. Inside the human skull, there is one very smart system, copied over many times, with some variations. [[[[[images/skull.gif]]]]] The variations depend on evolutionary age and so are their quality and [[[etfk/msdbCat/title/perfection|perfection]]] level. Most systems are quite ancient, and a muscle memory unit, and a Pavlovian response system, are two such examples. Yet I believe, and would care to define for the purpose of noSoul, a muscle memory unit as the building block unit of the brain, convenient enough to serve as a model for this theory, and its underlying research. [[[[[images/muscles.gif]]]]] [[[[[images/memory.jpg]]]]] A Pavlovian response is just one implementation of several muscle memory units performing together a useful function important for the survival of their host body: Making a statistical deduction with a sample of exactly two - correlating a sensory event with another - and attaching the corresponding behaviour fit for one event, to the other. This subsystem in this case, makes the correlation between the presence of food and the ring of the bell, thereby nearly guaranteeing that under natural circumstances the bell signifies the presence of food. By starting to drool before the food actually arrives, the dog is ready to process the food earlier than otherwise, thereby giving him a relative advantage. Under harsh natural conditions this advantage might mean the difference between life and death, and so the existence of such a system is beneficial the dog, from the perspective of evolutionary development. [[[[[images/bell.jpg]]]]] [[[[[images/food.jpg]]]]] In other words, if it so happens that by some slight mutation of the workings of the brain such a system of correlation occurs, then it is more likely that its owner will live longer to leave its genes to the next generation, and along with them this particular instinct. Over many generations, such instinct will spread to more descendants, while others not possessing it, will leave less descendants, and [[[etfk/msdbCat/title/variation|variations]]] of this instinct will converge with this same process, until they are very small, and the instict becomes uniformly spread among all individuals. We can then say this trait has become [[[etfk/msdbCat/title/perfection|perfected]]]. I suspect such correlation mechanisms are to a degree present in primitive creatures like the amoeba where there is not specifically a central brain, yet the presence of danger will generate locomotion, thereby expressing a Pavlov's response resembling fear: The mental equivalent of the correlation between danger and the instinctive according action. [[[[[images/amoeba.jpg]]]]] We can look at patterns of behavior of animals, and judge their level of [[[etfk/msdbCat/title/perfection|perfection]]] from researching their [[[etfk/msdbSearchText/story/Orangutan|evolutionary origin]]]. [[[[[images/Orangutan.jpg|Orangutan]]]]] Pavlov was ignored because much like Darwin, he was insulting humanity. The Pavlov response prooves beyond doubt, that man will not be able to restrain a drool, given the right cicumstances. [[[[[images/man.jpg]]]]] [[[[[images/drool.jpg]]]]] Thinking of the individual subsystems in the brain as independent, it is interesting to compare their inter-relationships to the animals in nature: The most common relationship in nature is that of symbiosis. All individuals sharing a territory will share portions of these relationships with respect to very minute goals in accordance. The subsystems in the brain, though independent, share the same kind of interest. In a [[[etfk/msdbCat/title/perfection|perfect]]] brain, the subsystems will be in perfect symbiosis with one another. Such is the case with Pavlov's Dog. Man's brain, much like the hands of the [[[etfk/msdbSearchText/story/Orangutan|Orangutan]]], is in an early stage of development and as such is not perfect. Like the Orangutan, man's imperfection is in its most unique and advantageous quality. Unlike the Orangutan, who's perfection lacks in the hands, mankind's perfection lacks mostly in the human portions of the brain. [[[[[images/Cheetah.jpg]]]]] [[[[[images/PavlovDog.jpg]]]]] [[[[[images/Orangutan.jpg]]]]] [[[[[images/man.jpg]]]]] Recent research shows that the human brain, as well as that of all animals, is composed entirely of memory systems of various kinds. It is also known that those systems are composed of many, near identical, simple elements: neurons and synapses. [[[[[images/brain.jpg]]]]] [[[[[images/neuron.gif]]]]] [[[[[images/synapse.gif]]]]] From evolution theory it is implied that similar structures must have common origins, be the structures the legs of a centipede, similar structures across individuals of the same species, or similar structures from individuals in different species, indicating their common ancestry. [[[[[images/centipede.jpg]]]]] [[[[[images/millipede.jpg]]]]] [[[[[images/SheepClone.jpg]]]]] [[[[[images/lookAlike.jpg]]]]] Recent research also shows that muscle memory can be trained without the use of muscles, or their immediately related brain activity. (BBC - The Human Mind - 2003). noSoul claims that a base uniform unit of muscle memory composition can be treated as the single building block composing the human brain. This includes memory for automatic muscle activity, but also composes systems for vision and other sensory perception and analysis and most importantly emotions, and conscious thought. [[[[[images/muscles.gif]]]]] [[[[[images/memory.jpg]]]]] The philosophical/theological question of choice is challenged. [[[[theora.com/misc/Pavlov.pdf|Is brainwashing a morality]]]] in or out [[[[www.peace-picturebook.org/|this simple]]]]? [[[[[images/wired.jpg]]]]] [[[[[images/GOD2.jpg]]]]] Charles Darwin mentions this without detail in the final words of his book on evolution theory. During those times it was frightening enough to expose The Origin of Species, and the ideas were kept well hidden among the scientific community until political forces from within made Darwin publish his work. It is no surprise that around the same time Gregor Mendel was developing the theory of Genetics in a monastery, only to be discovered later by his student monks.

Playing guitar with two hands on the neck is difficult at first for one primary reason: You can not watch both hands when you play. First, you train the muscle memory of one hand to do the right thing. Until you can close your eyes, without too much degradation of performance quality. Then you start slowly with the other hand, watching it. I abandoned picking several months after starting with the guitar, mostly because I found that by using the left hand only, I can skip the learning curve of both my right hand and two hand coordination, and so learn faster. [[[[[images/Stanley Jordan.jpg|Stanley Jordan]]]]] Being that I knew close to nothing at the time, it was important to advance as quickly as possible so that I can produce sounds I would enjoy, or else, I might stop playing altogether. Nowadays, it is easier for me to learn new things with my eyes closed. First I memories the visual of how things look on the neck, then I start with my eyes open. After a short while, my learning curve will be higher if I continue with my eyes closed. It is interesting to to note in this respect, that I believe strictly from my conscious thought processes during, that in such a state most of the brain is engaged with the visual system, thereby exerting more effort in a system that is of very high quality, as compared for example to the hearing system, as well is it may be tune for music, a relatively recent evolutionary addition to the mammalian brain. [[[[[images/spermWhale.jpg]]]]] I can tell from experience that while this happens, I envision two independent pictures of the two hands. So different are they from the actual two hands on the neck of the guitar, that if I open my eyes I will immediately mess up, just for the confusion between the images I was playing according to, and the true image I now see: The hands used to be laid out at about 90 degrees off each other, and now they seem to stretch straight along the single guitar neck, at an obvious angle of exactly 180 degrees. 1

The vital parts for which we relate mental instinct and more complicated structures, starts with the mammals. Mammals first started occurring on the planet in the early [[[etfk/msdbSearchText/story/jurassic|jurassic]]] dinosaur age, some 200 millions years ago. [[[[[images/dinosaur.jpg]]]]] The complexity of the brain of dinosaurs at the verge of their extinction, was already quite high, and lingered to this day with far more complex rituals, with their only extant descendants - the birds. [[[[[images/bird.jpg]]]]] Mammals took a different path, and after the fall of the dinosaur dynasty, evolved for some additional 65 million years, in part towards the human brain. The larger mammals with the larger brains with the parts that concern noSoul, started occurring about 40 million years ago. [[[[[images/mammoth.jpg]]]]] The evolution from some apelike primate to human started two million years ago and lasted until about 100,000 years ago. [[[[[images/ape.jpg]]]]] [[[[[images/apeMan.jpg]]]]] [[[[[images/man.jpg]]]]] About a 100,000 years ago, man was man, as we know him today. The fact that evolution ceased changing man means man was [[[etfk/msdbCat/title/perfection|perfect]]] enough for the struggle for existence. Yet the new quality that enabled this perfection merely surpassed a certain level, giving mankind dominance over the rest of Nature, causing the cessation of [[[etfk/msdbCat/title/extinction|extinction]]], and with it the cessation of the evolution of the human brain. [[[[[images/ExtinctDodoBird.jpg]]]]] The subconscious mind is composed of the parts of the human brain which are the subject of noSoul. These parts were perfected to live in harsh nature surroundings over a period of some 40 million years, with only two million years to adjust to an environment where man is in control over nature, and only has his own species to race against. 2 is a very small number compared with 40, and since systems can only develop gradually over time from generation to generation by gradation, each step independently beneficial for survival, the human brain never had a reasonable amount of time to be the [[[etfk/msdbCat/title/perfection|perfect]]] human brain.

There are never any in nature. Though horses are known to have [[[[www.iowasource.com/animals/mastersonmethod_1106.html|headaches]]]]. [[[[[images/headache.jpg]]]]] [[[[[images/headache2.gif]]]]] [[[[[images/headache3.jpg]]]]] [[[[[images/headache.jpg]]]]] [[[[[images/horsesGallop.jpg]]]]] [[[[[images/HorsesInSnow.jpg]]]]] This is because if you were to have a headache in nature you would be eaten immediately, and even if the odds of that are only 99%, you will never have children with headaches, so the ability to develop a headache would be lost in time. This being the case, it could not possibly have been created in the first place. [[[[[images/CheetahHuntingGazelle.jpg]]]]] Animals are immune to headaches, and [[[etfk/msdbSearchText/story/Artificial Selection|domestication]]] breaks this immunity.

What maintains the [[[etfk/msdbCat/title/perfection|perfection]]] we see all around us in nature, Is [[[etfk/msdbCat/title/natural selection|natural selection]]]. Powered by the arithmetic of potential [[[etfk/msdbCat/title/replication|geometrical growth]]], implying high [[[etfk/msdbCat/title/death|death]]] rates. For mankind, this equilibrium was damaged some 100,000 years ago, and was broken entirely some 12,000 years ago. Humans have portions of the brain which started evolving two million years ago, separating humans from other primates. It took two million years to evolve the brain to a point it can conquer the entire territory of the planet, but still another 100,000 years to perish in high rates while arriving at the skills required to rule the planet. [[[[[images/power.jpg]]]]] The [[tabula rasa|tabula rasa]] learning ability of the brain is what gives it its dominance. It took 100,000 years to learn how to use it just enough, and evolution completed its task, temporarily. The process of perfecting the human brain was stopped very early in its evolutionary life. Just like Darwin promised with respect to all such perfecting processes in nature, the brain will only evolve to be as perfect as needed to survive. In this case only as smart as need be to conquer the planet from other species, and variance will remain high as long as this process is in progress. For us, this means forever. High variance in the development of the brain means mental problems with high variance across the individuals. noSoul is about researching, identifying and controlling problems that are derived from the evolutionary imperfections of the individual systems in the brain.
