I have replied to your previous essay. Briefly, the new one appears to
be getting more abstract and uses more abstract notions -- but certainly
Two questions hack at me: how do you distinguish, if at all, between
learning of mammalian kinds resulting in new "memory" -- and episodic
"memory" of humans for specific chains of events? and, since (I believe)
other mammals have the same kinds of brain tissue and parts that we
humans have, what gives us abstract stuff like "ideas", "thoughts", "deep
conceptual learning", etc.?
Thanks again for your posts.
