Clint with all due respect, I suggest that your analysis here is quite fuzzy. You use a term like "you create control" as if the "you" actually exists empirically. What is this "you" and its "emotion" if not thought? Can you separate thought from neurons? Where does the "you" and the "emotion" reside? Can you have either without the brain? I'm still looking forward to your email which explains how you do all of these things that you claim.
