Het menselijk brein: 10^12 neuronen (processoren) die door 10^15 verbindingen parallel met elkaar kunnen communiceren....lastige klus dus.

The time machine in our mind. The imagistic mental machinery that allows us to travel through time

The time machine in our mind. The imagistic mental machinery that allows us to travel through time | Science, Technology, and Current Futurism | Scoop.it

“This article provides the first comprehensive conceptual account for the imagistic mental machinery that allows us to travel through time—for the time machine in our mind. It is argued that language reveals this imagistic machine and how we use it. Findings from a range of cognitive fields are theoretically unified and a recent proposal about spatialized mental time travel is elaborated on. The following novel distinctions are offered: external vs. internal viewing of time; “watching” time vs. projective “travel” through time; optional vs. obligatory mental time travel; mental time travel into anteriority or posteriority vs. mental time travel into the past or future; single mental time travel vs. nested dual mental time travel; mental time travel in episodic memory vs. mental time travel in semantic memory; and “seeing” vs. “sensing” mental imagery. Theoretical, empirical, and applied implications are discussed. (...) Many conceptualizations observed in language have also been found to exist in mental representations that are more basic than language itself. (…)

 

The evolution of the capacity to simulate possible future events, based on episodic memory, enhanced fitness by enabling action in preparation of different possible scenarios that increased present or future survival and reproduction chances. Human language may have evolved in the first instance for the sharing of past and planned future events, and, indeed, fictional ones, further enhancing fitness in social settings.”
