Over the past hundred years, much has been said about the conscious and unconscious mind, psychological archetypes, human behavior, the interaction of sense organs and brain, and the interaction of sensory data, mental concepts, and behavior.
But even with the current interest in consciousness studies and the advances in neurology and imaging of the brain, our understanding of both brain and mind remains preliminary.
Although theories abound, and science now has powerful tools for measuring aspects of mental activity and testing new insights, we are still working on the level of description, outlining the measurable operations of our neurological systems to gain a sense of what we could know from our own experience.
But even this kind of knowledge remains one-dimensional and incomplete because
it relies on perceptual and mental operations that themselves go unexamined.
