But in memetic perspective, no I do think we don 't stay the
we differ from the human we were a minute ago...we have learned,
heard, seen, touched, smelled something by which our body and
had adapted to it, our brain had put something in the memory-
our brain buffered solutions....
I thought your performance- scheme counted that in....!?
How about the fact that the brain constantly reoranizes itself to meet the
needs of the body? If a person goes blind, for example, the part of the
brain that processed sight starts processing touch. If a man loses a limb,
the brain lets some other part of the body take over at least part of that
section of the cortex which was used to move and feel the limb. People who
have had the left side of their brains removed are able to move the language
processing to the remaining right side of the brain. Isn't that evidence of
the brain changing at the organism level?
