I believe our intelligence is embedded in environment; sometimes more, sometimes less – to be more precise. There is however a fine example of the embedded intelligence by a colony of butterflies coming every spring to Canada and going back for the mating season in the forests of Amazon. Their brain volume can hardly fit on the tip of a needle. Yet, could you do it without a smartphone, googlemaps, and a fast car? Their lives are mainly governed by the ‘time-like’ dynamics, caused by the season changes, and prolongation of life. Butterflies don’t sleep in a common sense, that we attribute to it.
A good sleeping habit is important to our well-being – a hygiene, as a psychiatrist would say. In my current research, I am interested in studying a ‘space-like’ dynamical brain maps formations during a sleep. Also their progression and possible causes of disruption. I think developing such a data mining would be a helpful assistance tool in the diagnosis and treatment of mental disorders.
So, is our mind more classic or more quantum? – As weird as it is, I would guess more quantum during a sleep. As for someone’s daily activities, I would leave it to their own assessment of the environment they are living in and functioning. I would hope though that the future psychiatric clinics would include the neuroimaging dream readings in their practice, too.
