When science meets philosophy

I often talk about our connection as human beings and the effect that we have on each other both positive and negative. Now science proves it is reality by studying the brain function.

Please watch this video of VS Ramachandan, director of the Center for Brain and Cognition at the University of California,San Diego and adjunct professor at the Salk Institute.

He says : “there is no real independent self, aloof from other human beings, inspecting the world, inspecting other people. You are, in fact, connected not just via Facebook and internet, you’re actually quite literally connected by your neurons.”
