“There is something distinctly odd about a neotenous primate that has evolved into a species that can look back over its own shoulder and ask questions about its origin. And odder still, the brain cannot only discover how other brains work but also ask questions about its own existence: Who am I? What happens after death? Does my mind arise exclusively from neurons in my brain? And if so, what scope is there for free will? It is the peculiar recursive quality of these questions - as the brain struggles to understand itself - that makes neurology fascinating.” Vilayanur S. Ramachandran

“If the doctrine of evolution is true, the inevitable implication is that Mind can be understood only by observing how the Mind evolved. If creatures of the most elevated kinds have reached those highly integrated, very definite, and extremely heterogeneous organizations they possess, through modifications upon modifications accumulated through an immeasurable past— if the developed nervous systems of such creatures have gained their complex structures and functions little by little: then necessarily, the involved forms of consciousness which are correlatives of these complex structures and functions must have arisen by degrees. And it is impossible truly to comprehend the organization of the body in general or the nervous system in particular without tracing its successive stages of complication; so it must be impossible to comprehend mental organization without similarly tracing its stages.”  Herbert Spencer (1855). Principles of Psychology. pg.181-182
