One is obliged to admit that perception and what depends upon it is inexplicable on mechanical principles, that is, by figures and motions. In imagining that there is a machine whose construction would enable it to think, to sense, and to have perception, one could conceive it enlarged while retaining the same proportions, so that one could enter into it, just like into a windmill. Supposing this, one should, when visiting within it, find only parts pushing one another, and never anything by which to explain a perception.
«Lavoro molte ore al microscopio. Sono felice d’aver trovato una nuova reazione per dimostrare anche
agli orbi le strutture dello stroma interstiziale della corteccia cerebrale.
Faccio agire il nitrato d’argento sui pezzi di cervello induriti in bicromato di potassio.
Ho già ottenuto risultati assai belli e spero di ottenere di più»
by common sense, for whatever reason, proves nothing.
Other fields of science are built on propositions that may
seem absurd but in fact are true. (Air is heavy, has weight?
Water is made up of two gases? The continents are adrift
in the oceans?)
Donald O. Hebb, 198
