Many neurons pass statistically processed images from the unconscious to the conscious.

Updated: May 29, 2022

By studying "Study of Consciousness", I would like to think about coaching theory, such as rewriting my unconsciousness.

This series of blog posts are my study notes.


The philosopher Charles Sanders Peirce was one of the first to recognize that even the most superficial observations by consciousness rely on complex unconscious stochastic reasoning.

"On a beautiful spring morning, I see the azaleas in full bloom through the window. No, I don't see them, but what I see is indescribable.

(...) Our entire body of knowledge is a piece of fabric that is confirmed by induction and woven by a sophisticated and pure hypothesis.

Unless this hypothesis is formed at every step, the development of knowledge beyond the preliminary observation stage cannot be expected. "

Neuroscience provides evidence that the brain considers a myriad of possible interpretations of the same sensory input in the middle of visual processing.

There may be neurons that perceive only fragments of the outline of the ellipse.

Fragment information by itself will match various shapes and movement patterns.

However, when the neurons involved in vision work together to select the best perceptual image, all neurons will converge on the result.

If you eliminate the impossible image candidates, what remains should be confirmed.

The unconscious circuit of the brain is dominated by rigorous logic, so it seems to be organized to make accurate statistical inferences about sensory input.

In the central motor sensory region (MT area), neurons perceive the motion of an object through a narrow peephole ("receptive field").

Any exercise is ambiguous on this scale.

If you look at a moving piece of the stick through a peephole, it is impossible to pinpoint its movement.

It may be moving in a direction orthogonal to its tilt, or it may be moving in another direction.

At the unconscious level, individual neurons in the MT area are affected by ambiguity,

At the level of consciousness, ambiguity has already been eliminated, so it has no effect.

Ambiguity is not perceived by consciousness, even under adverse conditions.

Because the brain shows us the interpretation that the brain considers the most correct, that is, the case with the least momentum.

The sticks always appear to move in a direction orthogonal to themselves.

A group of neurons that act unknowingly evaluates all possibilities, whereas

Consciousness receives only narrowed reports.
