Does what we "know" of the universe relate to what we "know" of consciousness and the human brain?
I have often wondered if everything we have come to understand about the "known" universe, can be relative to our progress in understanding consciousness and the brain. For instance, If a tiny speck in space represents our known universe, can the same be said regarding all that we know of the brain? I only ask since I am very intrigued by studies of consciousness and being, and when I'm looking at images of the vast universe of neurons, synapses, axons, and dendrites, one cannot help but notice a resemblance to images of the cosmos. As of late, the rise of the Glia have only served to heighten my curiosity.
