I plucked the below mirror neurons excerpt from the internet so who knows but having admitted that
I love the theories about mirror neurons!
I have been looking at expanses of space like over land into the sky across the sea and feeling my whole mind expanding to match it FUCKING EARTH SCIENCE MAGIC!
"The function of the mirror system in humans is a subject of much speculation. Some researchers in cognitive neuroscience and cognitive psychology consider that this system provides the physiological mechanism for the perception/action coupling. They argue that mirror neurons may be important for understanding the actions of other people, and for learning new skills by imitation. Some researchers speculate that mirror systems may simulate observed actions, and thus contribute to theory of mind skills, while others relate mirror neurons to language abilities. Neuroscientists such as Marco Iacoboni (UCLA) have argued that mirror neuron systems in the human brain help us understand the actions and intentions of other people. In a study published in March 2005 Iacoboni and his colleagues reported that mirror neurons could discern whether another person who was picking up a cup of tea planned to drink from it or clear it from the table In addition, Iacoboni has argued that mirror neurons are the neural basis of the human capacity for emotions such as empathy. - Wikipedia
