Intellectual Adaptation vs. Adaptation


The innate intelligence does not need the nerve system to be aware of every innate need within the tissues, organs and cells of the body……
… needs the nerve system to carry out coordinated activity among those material tissue cells.

    How do we know this? How would we test this? The complete cycle always contains a feedback mechanism, how can we say 1/2 the nerve system is unnecessary for Innate’s full comprehension?

      The last thing we read on the nerve system said the estimate was that up to 75% of the nerve system was sensory. Not the 50/50 we were led to believe in school.

        Somewhere in the Greenbooks BJ stated the nonmyelinated fibers were the innate fibers and the myelinated were the educated. We do not remember reading him retracting or modifying this statement. Admittedly it was in the early books. Don’t mean to confuse the issue, but does anyone know if both types of fibers have afferent and efferent directions?

      I think we can even go better than 1/2. I think we can say that the entire nerve system is unnecessary for comprehension. the blastocyst has no NS. (proved by deduction) But, some kind of material pathway is necessary for the expression (not the comprehension). The more complex the expression, the more complex the material pathway, hence the need for a nerve system.

    I see where Joe is coming from and I also see where Stephenson was coming from. The confusion exists when we try to personify Innate Intelligence, in other words, we feel the necessity of giving it a place: living in the whole body or confined in the brain.

    The way I look at it, Innate Intelligence is a name given to the principle of organization that exists in the body. Organization that is kept in balance through a feedback mechanism that is indeed dependent upon AFF and EFF impulses.

    When we think of Innate Intelligence as nothing more, nothing less, nothing else but a principle of organization in organic living matter, we then feel no need to give it a home nor does it leave any gaps to things like “my innate contacts me and tells me what to do…” etc.

    Which comes first? Expression or comprehension? If you go back to conception, you have an egg that comprehends the information contained within the sperm cell. My thoughts have always been that everything begins with comprehension. Not to say that intelligence needs that comprehension or even matter to exist, but in the universal cycle of life, the comprehension and expression are dependent upon each other.

      I agree, Steve, which will probably create for you, a multitude of dissenters. Sorry.

        No need for apologies Joe. Verbal attacks only hurt when backed by sound logic, reason, and/or facts. Those dissenters are usually standing on a house of cards based upon someone else’s deck.
