Paragraph Summary
Let’s say What data and instructions do the mind use for centralized control? The SSSS controls the mind using one multitasked train of thought that can reason following desires.
To decompose The RRR loop, for recollection, reasoning, and reaction, is the outer loop used by the SSSS.
Before I discuss Our memory holds the interesting parts about us, everything we know, and is built over a lifetime from many sources.
One more The subconscious does a lot of the heavy lifting of the mind, but does not provide high-level direction.
Recollections can One can recollect either by recognition or association. Both connect representations of concepts to something, either to sensations or to other concepts. For recognition, we bind attributes to objects and match them to concepts.
The next step We subconsciously compare a perceived object to every object in memory and a match pops out consciously.
After a match Recognition of an object connects it to other concepts and to every memory we have of the object.
A single recognition Recognized objects are subconsciously assembled from a host of subconscious recognition events.
Our subconscious We have a host of subconscious recognition algorithms, e.g. 3D vision, mechanics, math, psychology and language.
Beyond recognition Association-based recall helps us consciously use it to elaborate on a train of thought.
The second phase Reasoning applies logic to propositions to reach conclusions. Reasoning works with recollection to form an inner RR loop.
Just as Reasoning leverages intuition and experience but considers implications of novel circumstances.
The third phase Reaction consists of decision and implementation. Decision is the selection of the optimal possible future.
While the Implementation of a reaction is delegated to subconscious processes with conscious feedback as necessary.
Recollection assumes To populate our memory, we try to remember everything, but at least remember the most important things.
This is a The mind has short-term and long-term memory, with the former lasting moments to minutes but the latter being permanent.
We understand Long-term memory is either procedural (learned motor skills) or declarative (events, facts, and concepts). Declarative memory is the basis of reasoning.
What about Short-term memory includes about 4 to 5 items, but can be enlarged by chunking and rehearsal to include all the ideas being considered over a few minutes.
While reasoning Sensory and other data channels provide an auxiliary form of short-term memory to prefrontal short-term memory.
