See him roar

Been watching Lionel lately. I share some of his political views and differ on some, but from the left tongue perspective there is a great deal of movement on his right side (my left visual field) of his face that is more prominent than the left side. However he does use both sides expressively.  Keeping the video on pause and using the arrow to jump on the timeline there are significant differences. I believe my instinctive way to see his face is to really see only the right side and relate to it with my dominant right side.

It's a fun face to watch no matter, but he needs a better set

Ungrounded

"Homunculus arguments are always fallacious unless some way can be found to 'ground' the regress."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homunculus_argument


On occasion one will run into this argument in the blogosphere to put down a point of view in a condescending way. "Of course you know there is no little man inside of you watching your actions"

I can evaluate by memory my actions of what I did yesterday, also an hour ago. I also can do it for a minute ago and possibly a half second ago. If I am engaged in conversation and I see an eyebrow raised, my memories of that action are pulled into what I am currently saying.  So there is no little man watching inside of me but in a way but I am constantly evaluating and remembering almost in real time.

Continued doubt

I have not posted in a long time. I did not feel I had anything more to add. As before I keep getting more movement in the left side of my head that I never felt before. Most of the movements are painful to some degree. I am getting more sense of movement in what feels to be my left lower sinus. However I still don't have a left tongue that I can manipulate in any sense of the word as in comparison to my usual sense of the older tongue. Until I can I will always have doubt my understanding is correct.


late edit

Just in the last two days I have had a great deal of pain and tightness. If there is a 'left tongue' it is tied to a much bigger use of the head and throat use in a global way that is very unfamiliar.
