You can make your points without reference to me personally, and you know it. Yes, you did start with sarcasm and I accept your apology. I was not trying to be condescending, and I don't think I was. The topic I brought up was why do so many rich people seem to have trouble with reality. I fully understand that many regular (non-wealthy) people have a very poor grip on reality. But you would think that highly successful people with more money than God might be more rational. My contention, and you have provided no evidence to the contrary, is that they often seem to have less of a grip on reality than average people. Take a look at the book 'Dark Money" by Jane Mayer about the Koch family. Clearly, the money had a big effect on their view of the world and their thinking capabilities.
And believe me, your description of how the brain works is not from any neuroscientists that I have read. In fact, there is no single theory of how the brain functions from a single source. You need to read many, many papers from many sources to even come to a vague notion of how the brain functions. I would be happy to have a fuller discussion with you on that if you are interested. For example, what is your take on the so-called default mode of brain activity and the circuits involved? I would be very interested to hear your opinions on it.
