I believe consciousness is a monitoring system (aka awareness) When our hand is moved obeying some computations,there is a ON-SCREEN DISPLAY going on in the brain: " my hand is moving " When we are learning something ,DISPLAY : "your are learning this and this " and saves it with a lot of tags in it,so that when you learn something new which includes a tagged word,it opens the old saved data and updates it. Without this monitoring and liaison system our brain stumbles. And this monitoring system is acts only when the actions are related to the cerebrum of the brain and not to cerebellum where primary motor functions are saved. This is why we are not concentrating on our speech while we are speaking. Thus,in my belief, in the absence of this monitoring system,the functions of cerebrum gets affected but not that of cerebellum. Thats why we can speak even while we are asleep. so,casually effective in case of cerebrum but not in case of cerebellum. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
