Now you're mixing a bunch of different things that have nothing to do with specific memory recall at will.
First, you talk about random noise. Your quotes actually agree with what I've been saying. Here's one:
But there is no problem imagining a role for randomness in the brain in the form of quantum level noise that affects the communication of
knowledge. Noise can introduce random errors into stored memories. Noise can create random associations of ideas during memory
Yes, memories are stored in the brain because the brain processes information. Of course can produce random errors or make it harder to recall certain
memories. This could be why people could be trying to recall the title of a movie they saw five years ago and you have to tune out the noise to get to
the specific memory.
My point is, this has nothing to do with the recall of specific memories. This just says that recall of memories can produce errors because of random
noise. Nobody disputed random noise which is a key component in information theory.
What you seem to be saying is that random events occur in ones environment but that's not in dispute.
How does any of this relate to the recall of specific memories at will?
When I want to recall a specific memory that's stored in the brain, random noise may make some memories harder to recall, but what does random noise
have to do with the recall of the specific memory?
Again, you keep looking for a random explanation to explain how we can deliberately and with intention recall specific memories or what science calls
I ask again, how does random noise know I want to recall Michael Jackson's Beat It Video and then tunes out Thriller, Rock Wit You and all of the
other Michael Jackson videos I have seen?
If random activity or random noise can do this, let's here how this is accomplished. Is there scientific papers and experiments to support random
noise recalling specific memories? I don't understand the point you're trying to make. It's like you read the word random but fail to look at what
Here's part of your post that agrees with everything I have said. Did you read the paper you quoted?
The "free" stage of the Cogito Model depends on thermal and quantal noise in the neural circuitry of the brain. This noise introduces errors
in the storage and retrieval of information, noise that may be helpful in generating alternative possibilities for action.
The "will" stage of the Cogito Model suppresses this noise for the adequately determined process of evaluation and decision, unless the will is
satisfied with a random choice in special cases of the liberty of indifference.
What this paper is saying is there's a Micro Mind or Quantum Mind of uncertainty. Then there's a Classical Mind of decision.
The "will" stage can suppress noise, evaluate, make decisions and it's what I said can recall specific memories.
What your paper doesn't say is how this is possible for the material brain.
How can the material brain suppress the noise?
How does the material brain know which noise to suppress and which specific information you want? ex, Beat It video or Thriller video.
How does the material brain conduct an evaluation of the information?
How does this "will" recall specific memories?
Again, the paper you quoted from supports what I'm saying. "Will" does these things.
The paper also talks about random noise in terms of thoughts not stored memories. The article you quoted specifically says random noise can produce
errors in stored memories, not that random noise can produce these memories.
In terms of thoughts, it's just saying quantum uncertainty gives us a sea of probabilities. I don't disagree with that.
