Stimulation that you get thorough your senses of the outside
not control you.
How could you possibly know that, considering that John has accumulated
years of stimulation?
Just look at the Conjoined Twins video I posted. Those two people are
identical, occupy the same body, experience stimulation that is very
they *routinely* disagree.
Similar isn't the same.
But the behavior varies in similarity while their stimulation does not.
Sure it does. They are not in exactly the same place. Haven't you heard of chaotic
dynamics. Even perfectly identical systems can diverge in behavior due to infinitesimal
differences in stimulation.
Clearly they are each controlling their own behavior separately, even though the degree
to which their stimulation from the outside world does not vary separately.
But you don't know that. You are just looking at the current stimulation. Yet their
behavior, even their internal structure, has been molded by different stimulations since
they were embryos.
If the internal conditions were sufficient to allow their control strategies to diverge,
then they should not re-synchronize again and again constantly. Each difference should
build on each other, like two slightly different fractal kernels wouldn't weave in and
out of perfect synch all the time, they would follow completely anomalous paths. The
fractals might look like the are exploring different patterns (if even that) but it
seems like they would not keep going back to isomorphic patterns at the same time.
Why not? "Seems like" is just your intuition.
