Patterns / Jeff Hawkins
I hope this note finds you in good health.
I am selecting from your 1998/1999 article the statement, "Our brain systems, our thought patterns, are not dependent on any molecules or parts of the brain in particular but merely in the preservation of patterns." I am wondering whether you have seen/read the 2004 book "On Intelligence," by Jeff Hawkins. He seems to be looking at the same issues you discussed in this article, and I believe you two might have a fruitful dialog.
Thank you for making your ideas public via the internet.
