Benbuehne I can understand what you say about the analogy between the neuron and the brain. But many scientists argue that the structure of a cell that operates autonomously, but coordinated is a complex evolving structure that can be found nowhere else. Ie it is easier for man to his fellow clone or build spaceships or any other technology prowess, but to build a cell. It's for this fact that many biologists don't recognize the evolutionary character due to chance. because the structure of the cell and an amazing complexity, it's the top of the organic world. Other organic structures that are assemblies. I also don't think it's the small things that make their level of consciousness. Thus nothing says that the brain has more conscience than the neuron! And to my knowledge, can't say any more than has the microcosm to the macrocosm lower consciousness!
