Two Perceptual Mechanisms - Vibrations in the Eye and Entities Over the Cortex (that offer a simplified mathematical model of connectome global brain dynamics)  Ashley Willis (Perception Theory Ptd Ltd, Ocean Grove, VICTORIA Australia)   P1

I know how two auditory perceptual mechanisms operate. These internal vibratory regimes syncopate with external auditory stimuli and gives the body an internal correlation of external reality. The first perceptual mechanism involves soundwaves reverberating in the eye's vitreous humour that syncopate with audition and send electro-cortical signals up the optic nerve (and receive return signals), which would obviously stimulate the brain and generate preferential growth and development. The second perceptual mechanism involves entities travelling over the cortex, that are generated exactly in time with external beats and rhythms. Both mechanisms are doubly-bifurcated systems, left side conscious, right side silent. The Perceptual Mechanisms form a starting point for an 'Introduction to Perception Theory', whereby internal perceptual mechanisms syncopate with external stimuli and operate in synergy with the growing brain, leading to cognitive development. Perception Theory is the juncture of external stimuli, internal representation & prediction, cognitive development & psychology. Perceptual mechanisms also offer a platform for computers to directly interface with our perception systems and hence consciousness. The two perceptual mechanisms are internally vibratory mechanisms whose pulses/waves naturally syncopate and harmonise with repetitive external stimuli, eg auditory beat and rhythms. The perceptual systems in themselves are highly calibrated systems that will have grown in synergy with the brain which then give the brain encoded organic structures to spark with incoming sensory signals from external stimuli. The perceptual mechanisms attribute meaning to external stimuli and as such are solutions to the binding problem espoused by David Chalmers. The perceptual mechanisms provide axioms of perception theory, which is intimately associated with consciousness. Axioms: - the body has physiological loops that entrain vibrations whose interactions syncopate with auditory beat and rhythm. - these perceptual acts occur at the periphery of the CNS and show that perceptual mentation can occur outside of what is formally considered to be the CNS. - the perceptual mechanisms are felt as 'flux through the field', and intuit properties of mind - the perceptual mechanisms seem to be the bodies instrumentation that provides the body/brain with a pre-calibrated system with which to compare and contrast incoming sensory stimuli. As such, perception is a precursor to analysis (along with memory and internal communication). - the brain stimulates the perceptual mechanisms which then provide feedback signals to the brain, forming a synergetic loop, enabling both to morph and grow complexity, based on modulating frequency and resonance. - definite structures within the brain must be attributable to the brain's synergetic development with the perceptual mechanisms. - soundwaves reverberating in the eye gives the eye dual function - to sense light and perceive sound - and gives a second evolutionary purpose to understand the eye's physiology. - entities over the cortex are presumably generated by global brain dynamics and hence give a simplified model for macro-cortical activity, that can be modelled with the interactions of 1-100 entities as opposed to 10^20 neurons/synapses. It is important to note that entities can be felt, individual synaptic firing cannot and that feeling is the basis of consciousness.
