"Freud was not alone in imagining the nerves as an elaborate network resembling wiring diagrams used to design and describe electric circuits at the end of the nineteenth century.16
Two types of neurons
"permeable neurons which “after each passage of excitation are in the same state as before,” and, more crucially, impermeable neurons which are loaded with resistance, are altered by the passage of energy, and are therefore able to retain traces of the passage.
now welcomes neuroscience’s elimination of signification: critical theory with its reliance on language has assumed a deeply cognitivist and, Bryson adds, inherently clerical stance which stands to be corrected as neuroscience unearths the silent intelligence lodged in the body and brings the “creatural life of the body and of embodied experience”
“God is an intelligible sphere rather than infinite sphere whose center ya everywhere and circumference is nowhere”.
<b>Solastalgia</b> ( /sɒləˈstældʒə/)
 is a neologism that describes a form of psychic or existential distress caused by environmental change, such as mining or climate change. Coined by philosopher Glenn Albrecht in 2003, it was formed from a combination of the Latin word sōlācium (comfort) and the Greek root -algia (pain). The first article published on this concept appeared in 2005.
As opposed to nostalgia—the melancholia or distress experienced by individuals when separated from a loved home (or homesickness)—"solastalgia" is the distress that is produced by environmental change impacting on people while they are directly connected to their home environment. A paper published by Albrecht and collaborators focused on two contexts where collaborative research teams found solastalgia to be evident: the experiences of persistent drought in rural New South Wales (NSW) and the impact of large-scale open-cut coal mining on individuals in the Upper Hunter Valley of NSW. In both cases, people exposed to environmental change experienced negative affect that is exacerbated by a sense of powerlessness or lack of control over the unfolding change process.
Subsequent studies have supported the existence of solastalgia, in Appalachian (US) communities affected by mountain-top removal coal mining practices, as well as a community affected by wildfire destruction of homes and property.
In 2015, the prestigious medical journal The Lancet included solastalgia as a contributing concept to the impact of Climate Change on Human Health and Wellbeing.
People are generally deceived when they judges issues and events, but later, when they understand things in their particulars, they are no longer deceived [...] It is clear that the quickest way to open people's eyes, given that a general matter may deceive them, is to make them get down to its particulars.
