AC: And now I come to a point where I find it quite difficult for me to start – and please, excuse my quite limited knowledge on the topic. There is a documentary “Le cerveau d’Hugo”, which I saw on Youtube. I was deeply impressed by the story and by the personalities of the people that took part in that film. And I also felt these people so close to me – speaking and thinking of the same things. I am coming from Bulgaria and to be honest, living in France is kind of a challenge for my social skills. Imagine Bulgaria as a little social jungle, full of “primitive” people. If you like someone, it is obvious. It is obvious from your attitude and the way you speak, the words you use and the way you behave. If you don’t – he can feel it. In France there is a generally accepted comportment protocol. You meet different people and all of them are very friendly to you. The problem for me is that they are all friendly in the same way and thus I cannot figure out who really is friendly and who is just following the protocol. More cultivated people, but in the end – more difficult to interact with. And then comes a little consequence – we use different words to describe events. And sometimes the differences are so big, that one may think that one of us is lying. And probably is. I suppose that this phenomenon has a reasonable explanation based on cultural differences. In France it is not accepted to be direct. You have to dive between the lines. And this is the moment in which I sink.
Take these lines as a kind of an introduction to the topic, a way to introduce the reason for this interview to the readers. There are two books, which I would like to read in the forthcoming future – “Je suis a l’Est” by Josef Schovanec and “Born on a Blue Day” by Daniel Tammet (links to be added and links to interviews in youtube to be added). And then I will have a more clear idea, I hope.
Please, feel free to comment as much in details as you like any of my statements.
And now, in particular, I am interested in the way you see life and how you visualise it. In the way you take pictures. But before we started, maybe it will be a good idea if you tell us a few words about yourself?
LH: Hello, My name is Luke Hayne, I am from the UK, I am 32 years of age and was born on the 3rd of march 1981. I was born with (HFA) High-Functioning-Autism otherwise known as (Asperger Syndrome) I also developed Complex Borderline Personality Disorder (CBPD) and Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (CPTSD) when I was 15 years old due to abuse growing up. I have always been different from the many normal people who surround me, I notice the differences more so than the people looking from the outside. I doubted myself, my purpose and even my reason for even being alive for many years, I have always seen myself as an outcast up until recent years although I can still feel very isolated at times. I have recently come to the point in my life where I am actually proud of myself for all I have achieved and what I have overcome. I have only a couple of real close friends who I trust and like to be with although there are many who like me because I am very kind natured individual. I have many interest and hobbies that keeps me going; if I am not studying or creating, I can become very frustrated. Here are some of my interests in which I have and studied and pursued obsessively over the years; Photography, Clinical Hypnosis, Neurological-Programming / Reprogramming, Psychology, Physiology, Mechanical & Electrical Engineering, Micro-Electronics and Computer Sciences, Programing, Ancient Technology, Classical Physics, I am currently in my second year studying Neurology and Quantum Physics. I play a handful of musical instruments such as; Piano, Guitar and Bass, Saxophone, Didgeridoo, ukulele, xylophone and my favourite the drums, I also like to write poetry, paint, graphic design, Invent products and have a fascination with the study of nature and wildlife both great and small. I am 100% self-tutored, I didn’t learn much when I was at school and was written off by many teachers. There was no training or awareness concerning autism, therefore they never had any teaching strategies in place which was a struggle because I was always distracted by noises, smells, visuals and was often confused and would just draw pictures in my work books etc… I was the Best in my year for Science, Technology / Design, Art and Music; this was due to the subjects being practical and logical unlike all the other subjects which involved too much listening. I was 90% selectively non-verbal up until the age of 7 years old, I then regressed back to a 90% selectively non-verbal sate again when I was 8 years old until I reached the age of 10 when I became verbal. I can still regress into non-verbal states when under certain pressures, environments and situations. I was never diagnosed when I was younger; adults and teachers just wrote me off and never saw any potential for expansion within me. ASD has been huge part of my life throughout and has held many challenges for me to try and overcome. I have a sensory disposition where I can have a sensory overload in which can cause meltdowns if I don’t escape the environment that is causing it. I have re-call memory and a photographic memory in which I can visualize every detail from even when I was a baby being pushed in a pram, but on the downside, my short term memory is terrible and I can also struggle with word association concerning names and numbers. I have a history of seizures, epileptic fits, insomnia, eating disorder, depression and minor motor skill deficit which all often goes hand in hand with autism. I have had issues with self-harm as a result of ASD such as continuously head butting walls and hitting myself in the head with my fists, I will either do this when I am having a meltdown or when I am uncomfortable as a self-stimulation strategy, I do not do it as much these days as I used to, but it is still a major problem when I am having meltdowns. I have many forms of self-stimulation otherwise known as (stimming) such as; jumping up and down on the spot, pacing, intense finger twiddling, tap-dancing, making noises and many more.
My love for photography has and always will be at the forefront and highlight of every day. I have had the passion for photography ever since I was young. I was given a broken SLR Camera when I was 9 years old by a friend of the family, they assumed I would just use it as a toy, but within a week I had repaired the camera and was begging my parents to buy me film for the camera for months. In-between the time I was waiting for my first film, I remember taking the camera everywhere I went, I even took it to bed with me. I remember seeing images everywhere in which I wanted to capture. Even though I never had film for it, I would imagine the Camera was loaded. So I went around with an empty camera for about 7-8 months, every shot I took I made a mental image of in my mind and I can still visualize those images in my mind to this day, I can even remember what I was thinking at the time of the shots. Sometimes I will picture a shot in my head before I actively set out to take the shot, the photograph has to be identical to how I visualize it in my mind otherwise it will upset me and I have to discard the pictures and start again. Other times, I may spot something and notice small details in which some people overlook, I often visualize things from a different angle. I may be standing in one spot and visualize what it would look like from a different angle/location of the same subject, if the visualisation in my head is pleasing and comforting, I will then pursue the shot, I am happy with the results nine times out of ten when I use this strategy. I often see my camera as a different world, I see it as the real world and is a way of escaping this busy place in which most other people see as their real world. Where I was non-verbal and had a real struggle socially because I couldn’t interact, I was always watching and studying from an outside perspective. So I guess in a way it feels natural to me because when I have a camera held up comfortably to my eye, I feel I am observing the world from an outside perspective detached from people and the world with the notion of “I can’t be hurt, sad or upset because I am I am on the outside looking in”. I call this my clinical mind as I break everything I see down into the tiniest of details almost like when I am studying. I feel like I am a “looker” “Observer” “Watcher” “a student of earth” and not a student of man. I am obsessed with photography, I never ever go anywhere without my camera and still even take my camera to bed with my to take pictures out of my window if I see something abnormal and to take pictures of my fish at the end of my bed. Obviously, most of these; what I like to call “impulse pictures” get discarded. I have a scrappy note book in which I carry with my camera, it is for thoughts, ideas, subjects and locations for shots I want to take and achieve. Almost every visualized idea I have written I have achieved, except of course for those shots in which are beyond my equipment and funding capabilities. I love most types of photography from, painting with light, conceptual, abstract, compounding light/shadow/textures, wildlife both close up and wide, creative action, architecture, perspective and shots of people from a distance ie; natural portraits.
AC: Luke, you are great! I really like the way you express your thoughts. Nowadays it is a kind of fashion to be superficial, to be “cool” – which is just a result of a change in values – as money turned out to be the only value for western societies. And then everything else follows on that base – priorities, career, friends, lifestyle. People are strange.
Ok. I go back to what you have just mentioned – and it is impressing – the fields in which you have interest – microelectronics, physiology, psychology and many more. I have been working just in one of the fields you mentioned – physiology – and I have been interacting with microelectronicians just to come to realize that I am completely lost in that. So, for people like me you have done a massive and profound job. Maybe your recall memory helped you for that? Or the photography one? I never had photography memory, so I just speculate that one would be able to recall pages of books in the way he saw them, right? I remember things only if I connect them with something I already know. And then most people consider me very absent-minded, but it is that I just have bad short-term memory. As I said – it is a matter of how sentences are connected between each other. That is me.
How is it with you? Would you like to go more in details about your perception? Can you always be sure that what you see is reality (as most people would define it) and not some kind of “inner reality”?
I would probably just make another speculation now, but could it be that when you change your point of view and become an observer of the situation that is happening around you, you also have a feeling of being in a different situation? Does the type of connection we have established between us and the situation/scene affect our perceptions? Because I feel like that sometimes.
Like every man with a camera I wanted to take nice photographs by finding beautiful things in the street. To impress other people, I suppose. A weak point in this conception about shooting is that I “wanted to find”. Now, let’s make it clear – I am not looking for anything anymore. Life is going on with its own rhythm and one has to be intuitive, to be perceptive. If I have an idea that I want to shoot a specific thing in a particular way, I cannot be perceptive. My mind is burdened by the overwhelming notion. Or how I can be intuitive if I limit myself? If I decide that I want to take pictures of kids playing in the yard, that is a sort of a limitation and then my perceptiveness is gone.
And then it comes to the moment that many people want to impress other people with their photography. I do not want to impress or excite anyone. Excitement is fine in a certain way, it is a kind of a relation that forms between the photograph and people, but it sounds too general for me. I like to be more specific. Like Henri Cartier-Bresson said in an interview – to place a question mark in my photography. You can place a question mark for your heart (sentiments) or for your mind (notions).
And now I come to logics. Some people tend to be very logic. And maybe I tend not to be one of those. Logic is a powerful tool to study facts and draw conclusions, but when it comes to present or future, how can we study that with logic? When it comes to photography it is always about present or future. You may never shoot the past. I had a discussion recently about that with a friend of mine. And now I go back to photography. So, I can have a look at the photographs I have taken. I may analyse them. But there is absolutely no way to say what life is going to offer me tomorrow by using logic. Maybe if I clear my mind and there is nothing left inside, I come to the point to be more perceptive. I am not sure what kind of a parallel I may draw between “perception” and “intuition”? May these two overlap? What do you think?
But before you answer, could you just tell me some more about your perception – and more specifically in the way you see details? If you may recall scenes from your early childhood and be very precise in the description you provide, do you consider that fact to be related somehow to a different number of connections in your brain? Connections that stay “hot”? Not only in terms of synapses between two or more neurons, but also in a more abstract way? Could be that it is knowledge that stays connected – every fact takes its own place in the puzzle. While “normal” people tend to work with disconnected facts – which in my opinion is like “dead knowledge”.
Why “normal” is in inverted commas? Well, I doubt who are the normal people. It is like in the book of Exupery “The Little Prince” when he says “les grandes personnes” (big people) – not in terms of age, but in terms of self-estimation. Big. Important.
but this is just for me not to forget to ask you about the connection you make between sentiments and notions.
LH: The thing is with me, although I do have a photographic memory with certain things, I too have a terrible short term memory, I can often forget things that are told to me minutes later. Someone may tell me something and I will completely forget what has been said minutes after! This is mainly due to lack of conscious activity/processing capacity as well as lack of sensory stimulation. With my photographic memory, it seems to work better if my visuals and other senses are stimulated at the time. For instance, if I am walking about and looking at the world taking in all details big and small such as textures, shadows, highlights, wind, rain, reflections etc, and even the way the trees bend towards light, my mind becomes stimulated as I am also thinking how and why things look like and react like they do in a kind of a clinical logical mindset approach. When these two key aspects come together such as stimulated senses and the logical mindset, then re-call memory is effortless and feels like a very natural part of me. To me it seems I need to be practically and mentally involved with something for re-call memory to occur naturally. I can sometimes struggle with trying to re-call pages from books although I can remember all the content within the books I read, I feel this is because of lack of sensory stimulation. But, if I read a book and visualize in my mind the subjects, problems, experiments contained within the read, then I usually have no problem recalling these images within my mind. It almost feels like photographic memory is dominant when I am mentally, visually and sensory stimulated, everything I look at, touch, taste, smell and hear is imprinted in my mind vividly. I can offer a brief explanation of this process in which I have discovered via means of subjects and theories I have studied and discovered myself. With a normal individual, the process of learning and re-calling information differs in many different ways compared to someone with autism, here are the fundamental differences. A ‘NT’ neuro-typical individual has a higher conscious awareness capacity and a lower fluctuation capacity of sub-conscious activity. In a way an NT’s mind is dominated by their conscious mind. The average NT’s conscious awareness will usually run at a frequency of 16hz measured in pulsations per second and their sub-conscious activity usually runs at a frequency of around 5-6hz when fully awake. Both the contentious and sub conscious awareness can fluctuate slightly due to energy levels, environmental factors etc… When an NT is learning and observing something, the sub-conscious mind controls the sensory receptors such as vision, sound smell etc, the next process will be the conscious awareness trying to make sense of what that person is observing and then the conscious mind processes that informations and files/stores it accordingly within the sub-conscious based in a cognitive manner. When it comes round to re-calling that information, the conscious mind will process the thought of the need to re-call the desired information and will attempt to retrieve the information from the sub conscious also in a cognitive manner. It is almost like a computer, where the conscious mind represents the RAM where temporary information is loaded and stored, and the sub-conscious represents the hard drive where permanent information is stored ready for retrieval. Therefore images can not be embedded onto the sub-conscious such as photographic memory in a normal process as the information gets filtered through the conscious mind, and considering the conscious mind only has a limited capacity such as short term memory which cannot store information but mearly processes and interoperates the information ready to be filed within the sub-conscious, this makes it impossible to see and recall information in a photographic / real time manner unless an NT individual uses meditation methods to learn and re-call memory. Now with someone on the autistic spectrum, our conscious activity is considerably lower than an NT and have a very limited capacity for conscious processing and activity, (this is why it is hard to look into peoples eye’s, it takes more conscious activity to look into someone’s eye’s than most other activities, and this is why we develop sensory overloads and tiredness if trying to talk with people for too long) But our sub-conscious activity is considerably higher than an NT, usually 2-3hz higher if you are High-Functioning like me, this number can be considerably lower if you are Low-Functioning. But also,remember these frequencies can fluctuate considerably, too much of an increase in of sub-conscious activity will cause sensory overloads/fits etc, More to the point, my conscious mind is limited and restricted towards processing information than most NT’s, but my sub-conscious has an increased capacity. The process of when I observe something is directly embedded within my sub-conscious, images, smells, sounds etc can be burned/embedded within my sub-conscious mind directly without having to be filtered from the conscious mind, the conscious filter prevents this real time process from occurring with NT’s. Now considering my sub-conscious is more dominating than my conscious mind, my conscious processing ceases be a filter so to speak. When I go to retrieve the information/images etc, it is also like real time. Instead of thinking consciously of what information what I want to retrieve, and then processing and recalling that information like an NT. I will for instance, have a thought of a place that I have been whilst simultaneously visualizing it in my mind real-time, there is no delay between the time of thought and information retrieval. This is also why many people on the spectrum can retrieve answers to complex maths equations instantly and in real-time. In conclusion, The Conscious mind acts as a filter due to the nature of it’s limited ability to store information, the conscious is not capable of storing images, sounds, smells ect, thereefore it cannot transfer this information to the sub-conscious. Instead the conscious mind merely interoperates the information at hand in a logical and cognitive manner. Therefore with people on the spectrum, this information is directly embedded and processed within the sub-conscious mind where images, sound, smells can be stored. In a sense, when I observe something, the information bypasses my conscious filter and stores the information directly within my sub-conscious mind. Retrieving this information in a photographic way is within the same process.
I can perceive things in many different ways and often try to imagine and visualize perceptions from another person’s point of view and try to visualize things from their eyes as well as mine. This is just in a clinical kind of manner rather than in an emotionally attached manner. But with my own personal perception of things, I almost feel like the world is in a transparent glass jar and I am studying the world with a magnifying glass through the jar. I feel like I am outsider and on a different plain to others. It seems funny in ways as I look at the general populous and I feel that people act strange and don’t make logical sense at times, I feel that NT’s are almost asleep in their own world and are bound together by their conscious social filters, interacting in a restricted controlled manner and almost harmonising their surroundings to suit their needs rather than harmonising one’s self to the environment in ways. It can seen a bit ironic if that is the correct term because I feel the majority of NT’s and the general populous act strange, miss details and overlook logical conclusions and that they are the different even though I feel like the outsider. I am aware of my differences in a big way and it can be hard at times, but I wouldn’t change my mind or my way of thinking because I can make sense of logical things and can easily see the patterns in things which can determine accurate conclusions.
Indeed, I have never once taken photographs to impress anyone, but I have taken them to impress my own mind, not in a proud sense what so ever, but more within a sensory stimulation manner that pleases my mind. Almost like Tibetan meditation chants within the music genre, it is not fuelled by ego, pride or distinction, but is souly created to please and relax the mind. I will take photo’s compulsively and continuously everyday as I can always see things that will look good as a freeze frame capture. But I also plan many conceptual ideas for shots I want to achieve by visualizing them in my mind before hand as mentioned previously, I do not find find this restricting because I can always think of new ideas and conception shots in which to pursue. Therefore, photography should and can have no restrictions both within the real-time organic and pre-visualized manners / styles of taking photographs. There is something new and different details around every corner, and like an artist with a paint brush, I am always seeking that ultimate shot that pleases my own mind and not others in a non-egotistical fashion. Photography certainly isn’t something I do to impress anyone else, it is something that I love doing because it makes me feel happy, relaxed, natural and occupied within my own world, looking at the results afterword’s can be very pleasing to the mind and I will often compare the photographs with the images stored in my mind. It is the same with music, you go through the creative process of composing which feels natural, and then the process of listening / observing which pleases the mind. As you know, a photograph like music can also induce emotions and reactions with people, what this does is to induce a individuals own personal emotions based on a related perception of the subject connected to their own experiences, I normally base my emotion by visualising and perceiving these emotions through the subjects eyes and what it would be like living their life rather than a sub-conscious comparison.
With Logic, I see it in my own way and may not be logical to the rest of the world, it may indeed be logical with in my mind because my logic is based on my own set of experiences, observations and sub-conscious rulings. This is disregarding any indefinite universal-logic like maths or science which can draw exact predictions and outcomes regardless of the observer. One man’s chaos can be another man’s logic. So it could be that logic in some senses could just merely be an interpretation and perception of an individual, therefore logic is neither truth nor fact. As you mentioned before, logic is merely a tool to discover and uncover facts and truths unless it is applied to certain math / science problems in which logic can be applied to predict a 100% absolute outcomes. Here is an example of how logic can be right and wrong at the same time whilst being perceived as predicting an outcome in a philosophical manner. There may be 2 photographers A & B, both with the exact same equipment. Both are in a field in the same position with one single tree which is apparent within the skyline. Mr A says it is too bright but then Mr B says it is too dark! Both their perceptions of the same scene differ due to the fact they were using self-logic. They both use universal-logic to set up their cameras for the shot and then shoot the photo’s. Both photographers haven’t seen the results yet and both think they are right because of their own personal logic and perceptions, they agree to disagree. Now they go to the studio to observe the photographs, Mr A has a wonderful low-key silhouette shot of the tree within the skyline where the sky is full of colour, they both agree it is a great shot. Mr B has set his camera for a natural looking close up shot of the tree using a filter to increase the colour definitions, they both agree the shot is great. Therefore, both man’s logic is correct and both man’s logic is wrong! Or is it? Going back to before the photo’s were taken when both photographers arrived at the seen. They started thinking perceptively using their own self-logic based on their previous experiences, thoughts like,”I want this shot too look like this” they had painted a picture in their minds of the results they wanted to achieve, of course’ both their ideas differed. They then used universal-logic as to how to approach the shot and set up the camera to achieve the results they both desired. What this tells us is that they are making sense of their own logic in which most people seem to follow. I believe that there are 2 types of logic, self-logic in which is based on ones perception, perspective, previous experiences etc, and then we have universal non-bias logic which will conclude one outcome with exact results regardless of the observer. Obviously both men used universal logic as well when setting up the cameras, but it seems that self-logic is generally a more dominating factor when it comes to people drawing their own conclusions. Personally, I try to steer away from self-logic as it can be very inaccurate when trying to predict outcomes, but within the same breath, self-logic can fuel individual unique creative results in which is in the heart of philosophy.
My perception in a physical sense differs in many different ways and I think this is because of the RAM and Hard-Drive theory I mentioned earlier. I can visualize and remember things in great detail, even from when I was a baby. I can remember the books on the shelves, how many stairs were in the house even though I was to young to climb them, I can visualize how many spokes were on the wheels of my pram, the colours of everyone’s doors in the street, I can even remember the tags on my clothes. I can regress my mind instantly to a point in the past and see it as clear as daylight like if I were looking at you right now. With me, where my conscious mind is limited (Ram) all information gets directly written to my sub-conscious storage area, the information is absorbed in real-time and is placed with in the order of which the information is fed to me, almost like blocks stacking on top of each other. It is my belief that most people will receive information which is temporally loaded into the conscious mind (ram) then the conscious mind processes that information and places the data within selected segments of the sub-conscious (hard-drive) storage area. The conscious mind places the data within the sub-conscious mind in such a way that the data does not accumulate like the real time block input theory as suggested before, but instead the conscious mind will make sense, filter and logically place the data within the sub-conscious using automatic cognitive mechanisms. Instead of the information being stored in one location, that information with the general populous will be stored in several key locations, for example; If someone was to see the colour blue, they may see that information and associate it with the sky, the sea, their favourite colour etc,,, now not only is the data associatively stored in different locations, but the information will also produce emotional responses in which will also be stored in different locations. This will leave a mind with too much information to process real-time due to the nature of the limited capacity of the conscious minds process of retrieval, they cannot recall this information real-time even if the conscious awareness ceased to exist because of the order and fashion of which the data has been stored. Please imagine this as an example; The information on a hard drive as you probably know is not stored in an orderly fashion, the data is spread amongst the hard drive and stored on different segments. We may have data loads of 1, 2 ,3 & 4, and we will say the hard-drive has 100 segments each capable of storing one digit of information. Data no; 1 may be stored on segment 6, data no; 2 maybe stored on number 14, data no; 3 maybe stored on segment 62 and data no;4 maybe stored on segment 1. with a hard-drive, it may retrieve all the information real time because they contain several reading heads that retrieve the information simultaneously, but if there was only one reading head, it would be impossible to retrieve all information in real time because the information is spread across the whole drive and is to data intensive for example; if a conscious mind had a bandwidth of say 10mb/s then it will be impossible for the conscious mind to process data that requires a bandwidth of 150mb/s, this is like the average persons mind. Everyone only has one reading head and it is the conscious minds job to retrieve this information as efficiently as possible. With the majority of people on the spectrum where the conscious mind is dramatically decreased and often bypassed in some areas can affect the data input methods, we don’t have conscious capacity to filter and cypher the data to place in the correct logical, associative and cognitive segments within our sub-conscious, I like to call this associative placement. Instead our mind records as it sees, the order of the data we receive is the order of which it is stored, therefore it take less conscious and sub-conscious activity to replay this information such as photographic memory because it is just a string of information one after the other rather than several bits of information to complete the puzzle. ASD minds are almost be like a DAT Tapes, recording information in the correct order as it appears in real-time which is what makes photographic memory effortless. Conclusion; autistic minds differ from NT’s minds, both with observing and retrieving information, we have a mind like a dat tape and need to be programmed in the correct order due to not being able to achieve associative placement of information whereas an NT’s mind is like a hard drive storing the information in different areas / segments…
These hot links as you mention, I believe play a major role with photographic memory, but instead of looking at it in too much detail and without diving into a vast microscope to explain the synapses and physical links in the brain, I will often try to approach it in a more universal and fundamental way by means of visualisation. I see everything as waves and frequencies. I look at the brain as an astonishing inductance resonance generator with capabilities of producing frequencies and receiving frequencies. For instances you may have point A, B and C, each is capable of receiving, resonating and capable of becoming manipulated/activated by 3rd party frequencies imagine they are all in the correct order lined out in front of you. Now point B will be stagnant until it receives a frequency of say 4hz, Now we come to point A which is resonating at a frequency of 10hz and point C is resonating at a frequency of 14hz, the difference between the frequencies of point A and B ie; 10-14 is 4hz which is the correct frequency in which point B needs to become activated. Now point B is activated by means of resonance, it may produce its own frequency which could be any number suited to that particular pre-synapse / post-synapse, this may link up and resonate with any other neighbouring points/synapses within the brain, the points representing pre and post synapses, neurons are released and received according to the resonant inductance links and scope out slightly, and you will find yourself in a massive network of possible links and connections made possible by resonance. Then you may add this to the equation as well, the neurons themselves that are fired from the pre-synaptic terminal could and more than likely do produce a frequency of there own, it is also possible for the neurons to become manipulated and altered by other frequencies within the surrounding location, and it is also possible for those neurons to manipulate and activate synapses. The frequency of the neuron must co-inside, match and resonate with the post-synaptic receptor for the neuron to be received, and each pre and post synaptic receptors have to resonate with neighbouring receptors. It is my belief that each neuron fired contains a frequency that is almost like a binary command but in an organic term, the neuron merely contains information regarding the location of its destination, and a stagnant resonant value in which will stay stagnant until activated, basically a command ordering the synapses to fire of neurons. When the synapses become activated once again, it starts another chain reaction of pre/post synaptic resonant responses and thus the cycle continues. It is easy to explain how a thought process occurs using this model, even when you think of the process within the brain when someone just looks at a plain white wall, it is a chain of received frequencies containing locations and running frequencies and activation frequency commands. Of course this is just theory and I am in no way an academic, but I can see it as clear as daylight within my mind but find it hard to explain.
