Example text

Besides indicating that REM sleep has more importance to life than the support of dreaming, this fact is compatible with the idea that 34 Chapter 3 Brain State 35 REM is linked, perhaps causally, to the development of sensorimotor integration and primary consciousness. Maggie delivered fifteen kittens in three litters and raised them in a box in our cedar closet. We recorded the sleep and other behaviors of the mother and her kittens with an infrared time-lapse video set-up that was then cheaply and commercially available as an anti-theft device for stores and banks.

All that development depended on my brain function. But it didn’t feel that way. How it really felt I can never know, but I can be reasonably certain that it never felt like a brain function. My brain is insensitive to itself—so much so that even as an adult I cannot directly perceive that my awareness is dependent on my brain. Instead, I experience my awareness, my consciousness, and my self as disembodied subjectivity. This deep dissociation of mind from body is at the heart of the dualism that has held philosophy back since the time of Plato.

Brain activation in utero and in my early infant sleep led to the integration of sensorimotor data with an agent: my proto-self, who initiated movement (or at least supposed that it did so). My proto-self moved in a fictive way, in a fictive world, all the while feeling the cardinal emotions: fear, pleasure, and anger. The off-line brain activation that became my REM sleep was a very early sign of my self-organization. In my theory, self-organization has two closely related meanings. My brain organized itself, and in so doing it elaborated me—the self that became the agent of my behavior and my thoughts and my feelings.
