(Please note, use of “meatpuppet” here is highly ironic. I am all too aware of the fact that the body knows all sorts of stuff it doesn’t tell the brain, and that the entire brain has all kinds of information it never tells the neocortex, and that the neocortex itself does tons of work it doesn’t bother telling that little patch of the left brain that calls itself I and puts on airs. It’s a little bit like the Reagan administration: we just give the big guy plausible deniability by never letting him find out anything that might disturb his afternoon nap and jelly bean snack.)
