Beautiful Mind (Nerve Cell)

"Ideas, like waves, have fetches. They arrive with us having travelled vast distances, and their pasts are often invisible, or barely imaginable." Quote by Robert MacFarlane. Ideas are a scientific mystery. If you were to dissect a neuron, you would not find an idea (as an idea is not contained in an individual neuron). Where do our ideas come from, I wonder?

your welcome and I agree it is interesting but I do wish we had more control over our bodies tho then I could remember the exact images and colors in my mind and draw it perfectly hyper-realistic lol

Thanks again @ivy-dream - it's not often we pause to think about how incredible our human bodys are - it's kinda neat to think that no individual cell contains an idea

Thanks! @sparkle2232 - I just re-listened to a science podcast explaining how the mind works (or as little as we know about it anyhow :)

@moone101 - I haven't been able to find anything on the total length online (only that the biggest individual nerve cell is 1 meter, but some are smaller), but since our brains have 86 billion neurons, the total length of neurons in our body would be at least that much I think.....

@moone101 Cool! (I'm trying to google how many kilometers or miles of nerve cells we have in our bodies, but I haven't found an answer yet....)

Well I for one love it! (i had just read up about the future of neuroscience and combining it with tech, you can find it here==> https://waitbutwhy.com/2017/04/neuralink.html )
