That's how a Déjà Vu works

A paradigm shift has always been slow. Look at creationism vs evolution. The geocentrism vs heliocentrism. I like the way Jeff Hawkins goes exactly against common belief and understanding. Just like Einstein did back in the day, which lead to the general theory of relativism.

My brain can't process brain science concepts at the speed of him talking!

Unbelievable speed of speech. This is like a two hour lecture packed together in 20 minutes. A really interesting topic too, great watch.

Guys like these need to talk more often and the rest of us needs to listen more often. I'd wish the clip was longer.

Am I the only one who was expecting the false assumption to be free will?
May be that's already considered a given in brain science, but to me it seems much more important for a brain theory than the whole memory/prediction thing, which I always thought was totally obvious, since I learned very early, that what made us intelligent, is the prediction of events, rather than complex behavior itself, and I never thought that would be a groundbreaking idea. A key moment for that realization was when I was observing the behavior of my cat and I noticed his inability to sense "modern" danger, unless it directly stimulates one of the environmental senses (touch, noise, visuals). For example, one day when our heavy but very quiet front door was shutting, it caught one of his paws and he was screaming like hell, yet he still didn't care the next time you opened it for him, meaning you had to hold it open in order to avoid it catching him again. It would be like a baby reaching for the hotplate and getting burned over and over again.
So, our ability to learn and adjust behavior based on experience and expectation seems very clear to me. But the part where we have to recognize that from a scientific standpoint, there cannot be such a thing as free will, that is where we run into trouble socially as well as philosophically which then leads to us having to question our own scientific abilities in the first place, if there really is no such thing as free will.
May be I am completely off here, but to me, this is what seems to be the real problem for a brain theory.
