2007-2010 "The neuronal iteration is already in itself
an artistic, minimalistic structured process."
Result of an present extensive recherche
- and further:
" ... Consciousness develops thus from the
mixture of stored past experiences with also
again arriving present activities (inputs), and
consequently the process is dynamic …
An input has released a plurality of coherent
activities. This trigger process raises the
original input to something, appearing and
bearing itself to a completely new phase. It is
like a skater, as soon as he is on the ice, he
easily gone-sliding, while before on his way
there he has moved completely clumsily in his ice
skates. The initial clumsyness is those of
preprocessing, which is still closely linked with
the input, that caused it; just if the ice is
reached – the consciousness is arised –, a
certain degree of autonomy is obtained, owing
to those the neural activity is able to move
exempt from the frictional resistance of the

„And if two nerve cords touch each other,
it comes to violent discharges: Here
chemical messengers are produced, there
hectically flashing electrical impulses are
disposed, absorbed from the neighbour
and posthasted transferred, hunted
through the jungle of neurons like
flickering lightnings.“
