comment How is it the case that it is easy to voluntarily trick our sense of sound, but not any of our other senses
There's a book called "Your brain on music", which describes various interactions that take place in the brain in response to music.

comment How does a language deprived person think?
Maybe you can look at the experience of psychedelia , where a person is temporary intoxicated and may lose the ability to talk or comprehend language. My guess is that such person would be more likely to think in feelings, symbols or images.

comment Can I teach my brain to understand binary?
I'm saying it's visually very close to binary - just a series of marks and empty spaces.

comment Is there a biological limit for “amount” of happiness?
The receptors for Serotonin and Dopamine self-regulate their sensitivity to those neurotransmitters. This is why antidepressants that affect the availability of these neurotransmitters don't act instantly. In short, the person would adjust to any new level of happiness and it will become the new baseline.

comment Is continuous split or meta - awareness a scientifically supported concept?
@ChristianHummeluhr Do you have a link that explains what the replication crisis is? I'm aware of the incubation, although that seems to me like it's a process that takes place outside of conscious awareness.

comment Is continuous split or meta - awareness a scientifically supported concept?
While I cant remember names off the top of my head, I'm aware of studies of meditating subjects that showed changes in brainwave patterns. fMRI studies are also pretty good at detecting different brain activity. I'm aware of fMRI studies of subjects "in love" versus controls that showed activations of different brain regions. Are there studies of "continuously aware" people?

comment What are the common nutritional deficiencies in western countries related to reduced mental performance?
I found that a buildup of homocysteine in the brain can lead to negative cognitive effects. It is metabolized using vitamins B6 and B12.
