What are the "neighborhoods" in our mind about?

Is there a name for it? And what is it, exactly? Messages from beyond? Subconscious hallucinations? Dreams, drug trips, and even the right music can trigger this. What evolutionary advanantage is there to being completely detached from reality? . Do mind machines (probably disguised as cell towers) have something to do with this?–

  1. I can only guess: it is delusional on your part. Neighborhoods, indeed.
    I was going to apologize and say, “Perhaps my age is giving me away, but what is such a ‘neighborhood’?” Then I read the rest of it. It does not even border on pseudo-philosophy, so delusional is my only choice.

    I don’t know how the answerer below me got “consciousness research” out of “messages from beyond…subconscious hallucinations…dreams, drug trips, and even [ ] music” causing the mind to become “completely detached from reality”. When a mind is completely detached (and believe me when I say I’ve seen a mind nearly severed) from reality, the subject of “neighborhoods in the mind” have nothing to do with “consciousness research”.

  2. The technical term is ‘conceptual relationships’ which is a fancy way of saying that our minds ‘group’ thoughts according to some scheme whereby (apparently) very different thought (or ideas or memories) actually -do- have something in common. You might find that looking at a car you’d like to buy reminds you of a picnic you were on as a child. And the common ‘thread’ is that the color of the car is the same as the color of the watermellon that was cut open on the table at that picnic. And, perhaps, the reason that you really like this car is because that particular picnic is one of your most pleasant childhood memories.
    The whole area of ‘consciousness research’ is fairly new. Not only does nobody have any of the answers, it’s not terribly clear that we’re even asking the right questions as yet ☺

  3. Mind is where we experience life so it would follow that anything relative to thought would apply.
    After reviewing an answer I feel compeled to post Brain as well in part.. P.670 – §1 The physiologic equipment and the anatomic structure of all new orders of life are in response to the action of physical law, but the subsequent endowment of mind is a bestowal of the adjutant mind-spirits in accordance with innate brain capacity. Mind, while not a physical evolution, is wholly dependent on the brain capacity afforded by purely physical and evolutionary developments.
