Nevertheless, an animal must _decide_ how to use each individual
twig. Decisions have to be made. Having been a very intense
squirrel observer for years, they are not robots, not even
close. Instinct provides the general direction, but they make
decisions, in the same manner as a journeyman or master
craftsman makes decisions even though he operates from a body of
training.

If the squirrel example doesn't work, how about the African grey
parrots who actually understand the meaning of their words?

And there are intriguing hints published here and there that
doctors and scientists are beginning to think in terms of the
mind not necessarily being restricted to the material in the
brain. Possibly that the mind is actually far larger than the
skull. This hints at the existence of a soul, and it's possible
part of intellect is held in the spirit, as, opposed to the
biochemical realm.

Those people with hydrocephalus who have little brain tissue but
have been known to perform at above average levels in school are
suggestive of this.

As an engineer, for many years, the linking of brain power to
brain size was a comfortable assumption for me, but the more I
observe and learn from many sources, animals included, the more
I realize that there are probably factors far beyond those
taught in university. In many arenas.
