Parallels of Brain Science, Mental Health, Climate Change and War

Guest Post By David Stephen

The World Meteorological Organization recently released its latest Greenhouse Gas Bulletin where they stated that, “Atmospheric carbon dioxide reached 149% of the pre-industrial level in 2021, primarily because of emissions from the combustion of fossil fuels and cement production. Since 2007, globally averaged atmospheric methane has been increasing. The annual increases in 2020 and 2021 are the largest since the systematic record began in 1983.”

Parallels of Brain Science, Mental Health, Climate Change and War

The report indicated that the necessary emissions cuts to prevent climate change problems before the end of this century are not not being met. The risk of climate change is known, but why does it appear that doing more is not prioritized everywhere?
Aside the economy and politics, could the brain also be a factor?
Brain Science
It is generally agreed that fear is powered by the brain. Some agree that depression is a brain problem. Memory is known to be the brain. Hate, anger, violence and so forth are sometimes not thought of as brain problems, at least on the surface.

There are brain world problems, responsible for degree of action and reaction to crisis and events, away from just the thing as its own problem. Some dismiss climate change because the degree of the fear it should cause did not transport [in the brain] directly from evidence, as they are used to—for fears.

If something had dropped and shattered, there is caution with handling the next one, since the fear [risk and consequence] is directly connected. For climate change, some don’t have ‘this experience’, so it is not that real.

There are wars or conflicts after resolutions were not reached because the parties had this unshakable property in their heads, for some reasons of being right [memory], advantage [memory], hate [memory], defend [memory], resist [memory] and so forth.

How does the brain make these determinations?

Is this different from how the brain places [problem] and replaces [therapy] in mental health?

What does it mean to experience anything but the brain decides for all?

Conceptually, the brain is a constant of quantities and properties.

Quantities relaying to locations to acquire properties that determine what is experienced.

Cells and molecules of the brain construct these quantities and properties for experiential interactions. It is possible to say this molecule handles this, or that, but to be in a situation where the function of that molecule should be expressed but vetoed by knowing what consequences would follow, if carried out.

There are different internal processes of quantities and properties to hold still, express, or oppose something at any moment.

Remembering is a result of the quantity acquiring that property across a certain sequence, away from how the recollection was the last time, or how others would have described it.

It is the same constants in the brain for all experiences that apply to mental health, climate change, consciousness and war.

In brain science, all sensory inputs arrive at the thalamus, except for smell that does at the olfactory bulb. It is where they are processed or integrated before relay to the cerebral cortex for interpretation.

It is postulated that sensory input or processing is into a uniform quantity or identity which is thought or a form of thought. It is gets relayed to the cerebral cortex for interpretation. It is thought that becomes the version of all senses, or everything in the external exists in the brain in the form of thought.

Interpretation in the cerebral cortex is theorized to be knowing, feeling and reaction. Knowing is memory.

Climate Change

Thoughts and their form are quantities. Memory—extended to feelings and reactions—are properties.

It is the quantity that any external sense becomes, and the property it acquires in memory areas that decide. This explains how climate change is important to some, but not to others.

To some, the quantities for future generations, risks and extremities are acquired to a large degree. To others, they do to a fair degree or less.

There are some who know, but deny, it is also a property in memory.


Conflicts from interpersonal to those between nations are a result of properties in the brain, where degree determines how to proceed. Though the events of war are unpredictable, and some may proceed with assumptions [property] before finding out unknowns.

However, it is of quantities and properties, including when some use substances to neutralize properties [feelings] against acts they commit at war.

Mental Health

Displaying the relay of quantities and properties across memory areas for how depression, anxiety, moodiness, fear, learning, recollection, and so on are determined, towards prevention and care, could also apply in ways to make some see how the brain places decisions to war, or for action on climate change.
