11. Faculties – Mind

( … )

Space and Time. Existence and Experience. Brain and Mind.

The experience we call mind exists temporally as the result of action. And that action is the result of the persistence of vision (up to 2-3 seconds) exceeding rates of iteration (around a 25th of a second), between the thalamus and the generations (layers) of the brain. Thus we perceive a constant state (consciousness) of changes in state by continuous refreshing of perception and continuous temporary persistence of the stimulation.

There is a reason we encode only the differences between frames when streaming video. Because those changes in state are all we detect, and we continuously assemble and model the world around us from those continuous changes in state.
