Brain complexity: learning new tasks (Introduction)

dhw: […] we KNOW the implementation of concepts changes the brain, whereas we have no evidence that the brain changes BEFORE it can come up with new concepts?
DAVID: Evidence: Only newly enlarged brains are capable of producing new advanced artifacts.

dhw: They can only produce new advances by expanding. In my hypothesis, the expansion does not precede the production, it is CAUSED by the production.

The artifacts appear only after the larger brain has arrived. You can't avoid the time sequence. We are different. The argument is 'push' or 'pull'. I chose pull based on timing of the events.

dhw: More computer obfuscation. First you have the soul operating the soul, and now you have the computer enabling me/my soul/my consciousness to do its thinking! Does the computer enable the software to think? Or does it simply implement the instructions of the software?

Explained in the other entry. The s/s/c uses the brain to create thought.
