A bacterial view of subjective/objective and, get your gestalt on

A bacterial view of subjective/objective:

Background:  View, or think back to  
which is Bonnie Bassler's wonderful TED talk on How Bacteria 'Talk'. 
In that she  described that bacteria track on both specie-specific and specie-non-specific chemical signals in their environment and, if that way can distinguish, roughly, between ~self and other.    Of course, to an individual cell, this detection is very personal in that the structurally coded impressions are in various proportions to types of connections in receptor sites.   And yes, it seem quite akin to various neural and neurotransmitter connections.  Doesn't it?
Me-you. Self-other.  Safety-threat.  All not far from the subjective-objective duality or complimentarity. 

Get your gestalt on:
In the trial theory I am advocating, so the story goes, our cells run the respiration reaction and generate  stacks and sequences of the ~six possible states of water molecules being formed in the reaction, reflective of conditions in the surrounds.   Now, if one is sensitive enough one can first imagine feeling and then, with some tree-hugging practice, *feel* the various feels that associate with the various  structurally coded stacks that are always forming.  Go ahead. Try it. 

No luck?   Well, have faith. Keep trying.  

Anyway,  whether within the Frost model, or in the other quantum and near-quantum, energy-related trial theories of 'consciousness', as more of the connections in the nested structural coding come to light,  the energetic *feel* will also become more apparent, at least to some, at sme point giving an account for the wonder-filled question: "How come consciousness *feels* like something, or anything... and WHAT are all those *feelings* anyway?"
But today,  and in preparation for the next one,  I'd like to scribble out how we can use the Frost model  to envisage the onset of gestalt, and therein set the stage for the low-level structural coding also working on the memory recall side in lesser recalls and everyday associations.  The gist is,  respiration is generally going on  throughout the body (and brain)  to the tune of 10^20 molecules formed per second. According to the many-body interaction rules,  repeating vibrational states  in the surroundings influence the structural coding in variously distributed respiration sites,  leading to what I call the same or similar structurally coded stacks and sequences of water molecules, aka hydrogen bonding packets. (Can you *feel* it now?).  

Anyway, this rather un-sub-conscious, pre-synaptic conditioning creates distributed regions (sites, cells, clusters) of internal symmetry -- similarity, unity, likeness.   If the cells have grown and specialized when bathed in such conditioning,  similar structural coding would be bound within protein matrices, leading to a more dominant symmetry or signal.

The gestalt is geared into these low level sets of connections. 
(Can you *feel* it now?)
After using this model to  get an initial *feel*, a similar layering and nesting pattern can likely be attempted with other types of models.   The question of *feel*, though, is strongly coupled with respiration-related hydrogen bonding and protein-folding and may  best be learned  as outlined herein, particularly before considering the secondary or down-gradient nested fields within nested fields or other similar expressions.   
Check it our with your next few gestalts and associations.  

Best regards,
