consider this organism:
it is composed of individual cells, or polyps if you prefer.
Each communicates only with its directly adgacent neighbors.
Cascades of stimuli ripple through the organism from time to time, but only (like in the game of telepnoe) by being passed frtom polyp to polyp.
No single polyp maintains “awareness” of any other polyp.
Collectively, the polyps can mve through their environment, but only in unison.
Forgiving my obvious artifice (there’s an oxymoron for you), this walking coral reef is you and me.
I seek help in deconstructing the process by which the purely internal stimuli of kinesthia and related data produce in some processing center
(Lekatt, go away. There’s no love here…)
a “sense” of occupation of space that is precise, effortless (for a contrast, try driving a 29 foot motorhome for the first time, and you will know what it means to NOT experience the space you occupy directly…)
Im especially concerned with the points of information “transduction”
ie, from one form of data , eg:neruchemical to a different form, eg.electrical or magnetic.
I will be mortified if someone comes back with a five page google answer showing me to be a lazy twit–I don’t even know how to pose the googole qustion in this instance.
Also, compare sensory deprivation states–ie, how muchj proprieception arises from suble but discernible signals from skin cells, the prolonged abscence of which mighjt disorient the attitude/altidude monitoring system, whateverthefuck it is…
