Wikipedia says: Sentience is the capacity to feel, perceive, or experience subjectively.
OK, got it. I suspect it also means, to some extent, self-awareness. I hope so, anyway.
People are sentient. Animals are too. Plants, hmmm.
Most sentient beings seem to have a brain, or something similar.
SO, here’s the big question…does just having a brain make you sentient?
Sentient thought is an interesting construct. We all experience it every day, all day, and even at night. But where does it come from? Ever wondered how or why you know why you are you?
Some experts suggest that sentience is an artifact of billions of synaptic firings in patterns in your noggin, as sequenced by your DNA and genes, and maybe too much or too little Taco Bell.
Sounds sort of reasonable, according to what we all learned in school.
It is interesting to note, though, that Binary Dimension Theory suggests otherwise.
So all day, every day, your soul and your sentience and your body are connected through Higgs Gates.
Your brain contains an electromagnetic footprint of your sentient thoughts, which can be visualized by modern imaging techniques, but there is also a measureable fractal construct that links you to God.
Most thoughts are locally generated in the brain’s neural networks, then translated in the frontal temporal regions, in the Wernicke’s Area and turned into language and images and sounds you can understand. That is unless you ate too much or too little Taco Bell, or drank too much hooch or equivalent.
Why is this important?
Because not all your thoughts are generated in your own brain.
Some of your thoughts come across the Higgs Gate. Your sentience, and your thoughts are NOT solely a haphazard biologic processes exclusive to your skull.
Either way, sentience is really cool, if you think about it in the right framework.
