        Stimulation that you get thorough your senses of the outside 
environment does
        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 
similar, yet
    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.
