Supercomputing the brains secrets
The strangest thing about this is the way the image of a rose ghosts itself within the visualisation of the data. Another interesting point is the idea that the brain stores a model of the world, almost like a VR world, within which it constantly reflexively refers to. In the context of education this informs us that the mind is in a constant state of re-imaging its surroundings at the same time the past interferes with the present in an effort to explain the experience of the 'now'. Are we in a constant state of becoming? If we are, then realising this constant becoming and bringing this to the forefront of our attention is a demonstration of the perceiving self constructing the 'Now' within - we forge ourselves in a crucible of our own reality.
