Actually a necessity in the Correlational Opponent Processing model.
Isn't it interesting that most the central nervous system is inhibitory or
an opponent process. What is it inhibiting? Wavelets of stimulation.
How does it do it? By forming anti-wavelet filters to separate the
background from the stimulus. What is the background? The
weighted average of the historical stimuli. What is the stimulus?
The discrepant information that is not correlated to the historical
"long term desentization". How is it done? Through wavelet
interaction, long term potentiation and long term desntization. Any magical
qualities? No, only correlations and
associations referenced in and experiencial Hebbian field. Any cause
and effect? Not in a linear way, but yes in a oscillatory global/local
way. Why has this not been reported before? It has been by
Aristole, Hume, Clark Hull, Kurt Levin, Richard Soloman, Jonathan A. Marshall,
Stephen Guastello, Lee Kent Hempfling, and Walter Freeman, but not necessarily
with the above words.
