The Brain as Symbol for Framework 2 Functioning

When I read the following Seth quote, it reminds me of the way the brain functions.  The brain is a sea of trillions of neurons each doing a dance to the tune of changing electrical and chemical energies.  Each neuron has hundreds of synapses that probe neighbouring neurons; chemical receptors of all kinds on the walls of the neuron cells; and within, microtubules linking the chemical environment to the quantum realm. Out of this seething chaos comes our ordered, logical thought processes, our structured perceptions and our associative memory - in some ways the brain is a symbolic representation of Framework 2 functions.

“Framework 2 combines order and spontaneity, but its order is of another kind.  It is a circular, associative, “naturally ordering process”, in which spontaneity automatically exists in the overall order that will best fulfill the potentials of consciousness.”
(The Individual and the Nature of Mass Events, Session 826)
