"The mind is a compact, multiply connected thought mass with internal connections of the most intimate kind. It grows continuously as new thought masses enter it, and this is the means by which it continues to develop."

Bernhard Riemann On Psychology and Metaphysics ca. 1860

"It is clear that the minds are the most important part of the universe, and that everything was established for their sake; that is, in choosing the order of things, the greatest account was taken of them; all things being arranged in such a way that they appear the more beautiful the more they are understood."

G. W. Leibniz

The Mind is a Terrible Thing to Waste

These discovered brain wave patterns during sleep reinforce gestalt conception of mind/brain nature not reductionist connectionist conceit of bits of information transferred by networks of neurons. The idea that the mind operates like a CPU in a computer, which is just an extension of a sterile master filing system originally derived from punch cards from a weaving "program" on a loom is absurd. But due to the reductionist worldview of neuroscience the theorists cannot see this very absurdity even though it is staring them in the face much like Poe's tale of the Purloined Letter. Their ideology is blinding.
