- There is also the singular phenomenon called "neuroplasticity" which means the brain can change its own constitution when and as it needs to. Not sure whether NP exists in creatures other than mammals, but monkeys and humans definitely have it. It's taking a while, but people are starting to wake up to the significance of this. Perhaps induction need not be as slow as all that. Perhaps the real challenge is to educate people with the concept of neuroplasticity in mind; of the brain's specific capability of producing what would appear to be almost Lamarckian adaptations to reality; of the brain's ability to above all LEARN and to do that, it has to be able to change itself continually. What else does that?
