comment Neural basis of primitive (newborn) reflexes
I believe I've found a single answer for all the primitive reflexes, so I revised the question to reflect that a single answer is expected. I'd like to reopen the question and answer it.

comment What causes dreamers to accept dreams as reality?
[I'm perhaps in the minority here.] I had thought the title meant "What causes people to accept recalled dreams as reality?" until the description of the question cleared that up for me. Nothing in the title presently indicates or implies that the acceptance occurs during the dream. Maybe rephrase the question "What causes dreaming people to accept their dream as reality?" or "What prevents dreaming people from wondering if they're dreaming?"

comment What is the term for human beings' tendency to obey without thinking?
Obedience is a form of the word "obey" in the title. It doesn't take into account the "without thinking" aspect. I don't know if any English word does.
