Walking around Campus looking for a hamburger. Then I found one. It made me happy.
Ran into this hot Iraqi girl I met last year. Her sister & I were speaking Pro-War on this panel. Sister was hot too. An Iraqi girlfriend is the must-have fall accessory! I’m kidding, but Iraqi stock is going up just by virtue of media exposure. Most Americans don’t know too much world geography, but they do know Iraq and Afghanistan, Korea, Vietnam, etc. War writes our history. War, in its own way, connects people. Slavery too connected America and Africa.
As a random link,
Sometimes I feel really bad cause I made a bad decision and got shitty lodging for my parents… who were in town. Anyways, I felt like I messed up the vacation… cause one of the rooms of my friend’s house smelled like cat pee, etc. It’s an unpleasant memory, but I remember all the more strongly for that. Like, I remember my parents and I remember that I love them… and I have that memory.
In Conditioning Theory the talk about association. Bell and Shock. After a Bell rings the lab rat gets shocked. Which fucking hurts. So the rat is scared of the Bell and he runs away when he hears it. The Bell is associated with Shock. The Bell Neural Activation comes to store the information “get the fuck out.” Whic is the first step of higher-level information processing.
This is the basic structure of Neural processing. Neurons are Associated with each other. So, Neurons (just cells) come to store information.
Association is behind Symbolic Thought, like Money. You take some random shit and give it meaning. It’s a link. Not hyper, just a normal well-behaved neural link. And it exists in your brain.
