Here I am going to talk `kinda scientific`.
The way I look at science, is that it is good … that is, it is right.
The way I look at `science` is that it is not explained very well.
This is for two main reasons –
1. Science is `coming from ignorance` so has to use `old shit` to explain the `new shit`.
2. Words are better-than-nothing, but very soon become `overstretched`.
The word-of-the-day is … `neurotoxin`.
The way into this is … red hot chilli peppers
In The Beginning …
A protobrain has the possibility for being in different `neuronal shapes`.
For our start … we are going to say that something exterior sends in signals that make for a `triangle` neuronal shape (in one area of the protobrain).
((the easy way of continuing is to go straight to `output` but I think that too simplistic))
At the same time as the appearance of the externally caused `triangle` … another part of the brain assumes a `triangle` shape.
The result of these two things being the same, at the same time, causes an `output`.
Okay … let’s go straight to the chilli peppers.
What I have-to-say now is … `just go with me a little on this, eh~?`.
The thing is about `neurotoxins` (scientific-like) is that they `damage` the brain.
This is `inconvenient science for me at this stage … so, I will say that they don’t (except when they are `abused`).
The interesting thing about neurotoxins, is that they don’t actually damage anything. They just carry a message that something is being damaged.
If you burn yourself … the neurotoxin messenger will inform the brain of the injury (the neurotoxin does not go to the brain and start kicking-the-shit out of it).
What we have is … a brain in various states.
If you throw some red hot bits of metal in your mouth … that will change the state of the brain.
If you throw some Carolina Reaper chilli in your mouth … that will change the sate of the brain (into a similar state to the metal example).
In neither example is the brain `damaged`.
The metal is damaging the mouth, but the chilli is not … the brain does not know the difference (because the brain never knows anything).
