My brain being like a remote control would actually explain a lot... I can't get the freaking remote control to work right either.

There is no evidence that human brain is anything like a remote control, or that there is some field that is to be recieved by the brain. I understand that people want to feel like they are more than just a "piece of meat", that they have a soul, but this is just wishful thinking.
On the other hand, we already employ artificial neural networks to do many tasks that typicaly required human mind, such as pattern recognition. If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck...
Photons are described as a necessary consequence of physical laws having a certain symmetry at every point in spacetime. The intrinsic properties of photons, such as charge, mass and spin, are determined by the properties of this gauge symmetry. The photon concept has led to momentous advances in experimental and theoretical physics, such as lasers, Bose–Einstein condensation, quantum field theory, and the probabilistic interpretation of quantum mechanics. It has been applied to photochemistry, high-resolution microscopy, and measurements of molecular distances.
The photon is the gauge boson for electromagnetism, and therefore all other quantum numbers of the photon (such as lepton number, baryon number, and flavour quantum numbers) are zero

That's just about the smartest thing I've heard lately. It made a lot of connections for me. Thanks....
