I was looking around the internet for any scientific research that shows the material brain can operate the material brain and I couldn't find any. It seems like consciousness and self awareness somehow emerging from the material brain is a bigger myth than Odysseus and the Cyclops.

How can the material brain initiate anything???

When a person says,"Hi, my name is Al." How does the material brain initiate the person saying these words? Who or what tells the material brain that Al wants to say Hi my name is Al? How does the material brain know Al is Al? How does the material brain know what it means to be Al?

If I want to recall a specific memory where I was running 2 miles to take a test at the end of AIT at Ft. Lee, how does the material brain initiate the recall of this memory? How does the material brain tell the material brain that I want the material brain to recall this specific memory?

Who or what initiates this?

How can the material brain go against the instincts of the material brain?

We know the material brain can be fooled like when it thinks a wheel is spinning backwards. How can we know the wheel isn't spinning backwards? How can we know something the material brain doesn't know if all we are is the maerial brain?

For instance, you can show where a DVD players play button, rewind button and eject button are but you need an operator to initiate whether you're going to watch Wedding Crashers or The Dark Knight.

When I recall a specific memory where I went swimming for the first time, how does the material brain tell the material brain it wants the material brain to recall this memory? Where is this memory located and how does the material brain know where this memory is located and then how does the material brain distinguish and know the difference between these memories?

What part of the brain initiates this recall?

I just remembered a homerun I hit in Little League. I hit several homeruns but I remembered the home run against First Federal and not Nations Bank. How does the material brain know which homerun I want to remember? How does the material brain know how I feel about this memory or why I wish to recall it? How is this initiated?
