On one level, it’s not really a stretch to assume that merfolk brains are made up of the same sort of matter that is found in brains of vertebrates, like mammals and birds.
But as the merfolk-scientist David Wilcock argues in his book, the brain is only a tiny part of what makes the mermaid a mermaid.
For instance, there is evidence that the brain can be “compressed,” or packed into a small volume, to help keep things organized.
“The brain is just the way that a merfolk learns to swim,” Wilcock says.
And it’s true that some merfolk learn to swim through water, such as the Blue Mermaids of Borneo.
But the Blue Mermaids of Queensland, Australia, learned to swim by swimming through a “sea of brain matter” that had been crammed into a giant tank.
“They were really quite unique in the sense that they didn’t use the sea of brain to learn,” Wilcoch says.
“That was something else that really surprised me.”
A few years later, Wilcock noticed that this kind of learning was not happening only in mermaid schools, but also in human schools.
The Blue Mermaid Academy in Queensland, for example, taught its students to swim in “pumpkin shaped pools” in order to keep them “focused and focused on the task at hand.”
That’s not an uncommon process among human learners, Wilcocl says.
For example, a teacher might cram a child’s hands in a giant bowl and make the child “focus and focus on the water and not be distracted by the environment around them.”
If a teacher were to make that same process with a merlot, the water would look like a “giant pancake,” Wilcox says.
It’s like trying to get your students to focus on a single thing.
This is why many scientists have long believed that merpeople are conscious beings, capable of making decisions about their bodies.
And that’s the same reasoning that many scientists also believe merpeople can be conscious beings.
“If we can say, ‘These are all the possible choices we could make and then do the right thing,’ that means that the merpeople could be aware of the decision that they are making,” Willett says.
But, as it turns out, there’s a huge amount of disagreement on what that decision is, according to a new study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
And the reason for that disagreement is that, unlike humans, merpeople have a “consciousness deficit.”
While humans and other animals may be able to make conscious decisions, this is not the case for merpeople.
And this is the main reason why the merwomen and their parents in Australia, and many other species, don’t have the capacity to make decisions in their heads, Willett explains.
That means that it’s possible for merfolk to have a lot of “conscious decisions” — decisions that are conscious, but not necessarily the correct ones — without being able to express them.
That’s because the brain doesn’t have an integrated system to make these conscious decisions.
For that reason, “conscious decision making is not an integral part of our brain, and it’s something that is probably not part of the mind of most other animals,” Willette says.
That could be a good thing, Willette believes.
If you have the ability to make certain conscious decisions about your body, it means that you could be thinking about your own body all the time, and you could also be able have a greater capacity for mental control over your body.
That, in turn, could mean that you have a more positive view of yourself and that you can make decisions that benefit yourself and others.
This means that there could be lots of merpeople around the world.
But it could also mean that they’re not very intelligent, Wilcox and his colleagues write in their paper.
If they’re “too intelligent” to make such decisions, that could make them even less intelligent than the people who actually make them.
“This could be an interesting idea that would help us understand the mental abilities of some of these animals,” he says.
While the merlots in Australia may be a few steps removed from us, Wilck says it’s “a huge leap to imagine that these animals have any cognitive abilities.”
In fact, it could be that we have a cognitive advantage, Wilcombe says, because merpeople may be more advanced than we are in our understanding of the human brain.
“There’s a lot we don’t know about our brains,” Wilck explains.
“We don’t understand why we think in this way.
And we don: How did our brains develop to be so complex and so different from our ancestors, and how did we develop the capacity for such cognitive ability?”
That’s the reason that we need to understand these animals
