Reflex - Instinct

(Conscious and instinctive memory)

  Definitions: reflex and instinct.

   A reflex action, also known as a reflex, is an involuntary and nearly instantaneous movement in response to a stimulus. A true reflex is a behavior which is mediated via the reflex arc; this does not apply to casual uses of the term 'reflex'.

   A reflex arc is a neural pathway that controls an action reflex. In higher animals, most sensory neurons do not pass directly into the brain, but synapse in the spinal cord. This characteristic allows reflex actions to occur relatively quickly by activating spinal motor neurons without the delay of routing signals through the brain, although the brain will receive sensory input while the reflex action occurs.


  1. An inborn pattern of behavior often responsive to specific stimuli, ("the spawning instinct in salmon").
  2. An intuitive judgment or feeling about the best way to act, not based on rational conscious thought, ("Debbie's instinct was to distrust John").

   The inborn pattern of behavior of all life is to adapt to the environment that is constantly changing, hence all learning in animals is purely instinctive, which is based on the instinct of self-preservation, and therefore everything they learn are gained instincts. Everything animals learn, (the gained instincts), is stored in the instinctive memory, and not as in people were most of our learning is stored in the conscious memory, which the animals do not have.

   The difference between the conscious memory and the instinctive memory is that the former can be retrieved at will, as opposed the latter that is instinctively retrieved in response to particular conditions in the environment. In us humans the instinctive memory manifests itself as some feeling, or intuition, as presented in the second definition of the word instinct. The instinctive memory overrides the conscious memory in people in responses, but in awareness the conscious memory overlays the instinctive memory. For this reason, our instinctive responses feel to us subliminal as reflexes feel to animals, as opposed in animals the instinctive responses are conscious responses. Because of this natural human deficiency animals of different kinds can relate to each other much better and faster than humans to animals. In other words, our ability to think makes us handicapped in relating to the natural life.

   The above cannot be accepted by the so-called "modern and progressive" science, which is in essence political rather than about the truth, because it could not explain the evolution of thought in humans, since it is actually the very thing that handicaps the man in nature and impedes his chances in self-preservation. The Darwin theory seemingly fits to the evolution of species, but it totally fails in connecting it to the evolution of man. In short there is data either missing or are intentionally misrepresented in the "scientific theory" on the evolution of man, which is in reality based on the antiquated Darwin theory. The day the Darwin theory was applied to the theoretical evolution of man, it became purely political, and in this concept it also became the religion of the so-called atheists, who found it very useful in taking the power and property from the church.

   The consciousness and awareness in animals is purely instinctive, as opposed to humans whose consciousness and awareness is to some extent instinctive but predominantly existential, which gives us the ability to think. Animals do not think, they instinctively process information, as opposed to people that not only process information, but also store it in their conscious memory and then retrieve it and reprocess it at will, (they think), which is something animals cannot do.

   The most preposterous and ludicrous explanation of the evolution of animals is providing reasons why animals do this or that, or have this or that, as if the earth or the nature would be conscious creator with reason that ascribed particular purpose for everything, hence the "natural order of things". In other words if the science justifies the existence, (or the coming to existence), of something with reason, then it must have been a reason that brought it forth, hence these fools end up talking about the nature as of God. The concept of "natural order" is a genuine oxymoron, because order is the subject to consciousness, and the earth would have to have that for the "natural order". This scientific absurdity can be summed up or seen in the fact that the modern science teaches that order is the accident of chaos.

   Noun 1. Natural order - the physical universe considered as an orderly system subject to natural, and not human or supernatural, laws, cosmos, macrocosm, universe, world, existence, creation - everything that exists anywhere; "they study the evolution of the universe"; "the biggest tree in existence".

   The above concept is a genuine self-contradicting absurdity, but if you keep repeating it long enough people will in time believe it, or they simply choose to believe it, or not, for one reason or another.

   Chaos is natural and has no purpose, while order has purpose, hence conscious and supernatural. These fools of the modern science bluntly say that the universe is God, (the creator), yet they say there is no God, while those that believe in God claim that He made all things, hence the universe, (the creation), reflects the creator just like any art reflects the artist, and what we see in the arts reflects who and what we are, dead, alive or living.

  For the sake of better understanding of the above I am providing the below definitions in relevance to all of the above.
  Mater: All natural.
  Life: All supernatural.

  Life does not come from matter, but rather occupies it.
  The essence of life is self-preservation, which the Life achieves by proliferation into varieties of forms. We do not say for nothing that "variety is the spice of Life".

   The evolution does not create new forms of life, but rather alters or changes the existing ones, which is what Darwin observed.
