Here we have the first-ever video of thoughts being formed in a brain. Albeit simple thoughts in the brain of a transparent zebra fish, responding to the presence of food in a neurological study at Japan's National Institute of Genetics, but thoughts in motion and execution nonetheless.

Thoughts, the very fundament of our existence as thinking entities. Odd how it is that thinking and existing as consciousness is a matter of doing, of constant iterative loops of execution, and not just some static form of occupying a space consistently.

Something beyond our understanding occurs...the transformation of an objective cerebral computation into a subjective experience.
