acids and basesPosted: April 18, 2008
Life can often be generalized as a quirk of matter, a random set of chemicals and substances that somehow combined with each other to form some sort of “thing” that can carry out it’s own independent actions. I suppose if you were to relate this to one of those tried and true cliches, we’re pretty damn lucky.
If thought is merely a bunch of electrical impulses sent over what we call nerves that stimulate a giant blob of flesh in our skulls that we call the brain, it’s hard to believe that those same electrical impulses, insignificant in size but not effect, caused our world and society to be the way it is today.
The human psyche can always be broken down into acids and bases but that doesn’t mean it can be understood.
