The associative reasoning is scatter-brained and wandering. It is the mental frame of the abstract reasoning that eventually canalizes it. The abstract reasoning gives direction while the associative reasoning supports it with assorted information. Abstraction prompts assumptions while association inspires imagination. Abstraction creates simplified models of reality while association makes them consistent. Abstract reasoning generates virtual reality while associative reasoning authenticates it. The abstract reasoning ascribes meaning while the associative reasoning improves its plausibility.
The removal of receptors removes from reality and the ensuing cortical reorganization makes the removal believable. The two types of thinking that the loss of sensitivity stimulates effectively cooperate in the invention and support of conceptual fables that are not based on facts. They collaborate on forming brain-generated perceptions and experience-like sensations. This incorporates false elements in perception and prompts mythification. The latter makes interpretation of reality easier, and hence more attractive.
The loss of receptors prompts the unconscious fabrication of credible myths. The reliable mystifications are attractive because they are simplifications that make interpretation of reality easier. The results are realistic simplifications, believable idealizations, mythmaking, piety, moralization and creative imagination. All of which relate to ideasthesia, confabulation and paramnesia.
The simulation of virtual realities or of their components is indispensable in religion, philosophy, literature, abstract sciences and arts. The loss of receptors increases the brain potential in these fields. The circumcision must be especially efficient in that as it removes receptors serving a primal and powerful sexuality. Note that the nonfigurative reasoning requires an abstract and invisible God which is typical for the circumcising religions.
Knowledge depends on learning and faculties on their exercising. The cortical reorganization is the neurological basis for that banal truth. It develops slowly and according to the activity of the brain. Therefore, the development of mental faculties or the utilization of the brain potential depends on both the quantity and the quality of experience. The remoter and the more exercised the areas that redirect through the deactivated zone are, the profounder the cortical reorganization is.
The less related to the lost sensations the activities that the subject is forced to perform are, and the longer and the greater their loading is, the profounder is the cortical reorganization and the larger the sphere of activities that the brain potential utilizes are. Or as they say, persistent practice leads to perfection.
The loss of receptors increases subjectivity and bias as it facilities nonconcrete thinking and deprives the nervous system of informational feedback. The loss of sensitivity fosters free associations in conditions of informational deficit. The cortical reorganization utilizes the brain potential according to the environmental conditions. Loss of identical receptors is to produce the same cortical reorganization in the same conditions. The same modification of the body tends to cause identical conceptual bias.
