Why do we think,manipulate,create and learn ideas ?? Hi, First of all execuse me if you found me noobish for asking such a question, However I really want to know about this, Couple of days ago me and my colleagues were debating on a topic regarding how brain develops ideas, what is basically responsible for something new..... My question is : " How does brain generates new ideas, ?? and does it really generates new ideas, or is it that it tries to learn from billions of years of evolution, or what it is taught , and then learn by experience..??" My question straight away means that why we are able to think and take actions ?? And what happens to human brain when it comes across something which it is not able to relate with...something totally new ??? // also I wanted to know that how can we say that someone's thought is wrong or right ?? For e.g. say I thought of something , and my brother thought of the same thing but we both generated different results for it.....why is it that he was wrong and I was right........ Some may say that I am asking a logical question....but what actually I need is a Medical answer......whether its some sort of chemical reaction , or some sort of "NOISE" produced in brain due to electrical activity , or is it evolution or what..that makes the brain function.....Plz give me scientific answer to this............ I also heard about a new electronic device being developed codenamed " SYNAPSE", running at 10hz frequency , and perfroms some of the functions that our brain can...i mean something that makes us human and unique.......... Thanks, Rishi.
