To me the most striking paradox was that despite the malfunctions of more primal brain structures – that are basal ganglia – can be skipped or maybe rather compensated by the conscious activity of cortex and the automatic body signals can be broken down. The power of humane consciousness is a mystery, but unfortunately we all know how much mental effort it demands – what is visible especially while learning new things.
