hey as a neuroscience major and someone who wants to study and research the human consciousness in the future, this post was a must!
MIND OVER MATTER

synesthesia: hearing colors, tasting shapes
savant cases
explaining parasomnia
monkey head transplants
explaining the split brain effect
the case of phineas gage

[W]e live in a sexually liberal society, not a liberated one. A truly liberated society is one where sex is value-neutral and not having sex is just as acceptable as having a lot of it.

The fact that asexuals are considered weird, sick, abnormal, mentally ill, repressed, etc is a bold indicator that we are not living in a sexually liberated society but in a liberalized one.

Feeling flesh and blood beneath my fingers, taking pulses, inspecting tongues and eyeballs, all the familiar routine, had done much to settle the feeling of hollow panic that had been with me since my fall through the rock. However strange my circumstances, and however out of place I might be, it was somehow very comforting to realize that these were truly other people. Warm-flushed and hairy, with hearts that could be felt beating and lungs that breathe audibly.
