How does the brain evolve from primitive states to today's states?Where does consciousness come from? What form does consciousness have if any? If consciousness does not have form yet we are aware of it would that not be metaphysical or spiritual? Are our emotions innate or social input? pljames

No, did the brain evolve from primate to today? What is consciousness? Are our innateness social or a product or evolution? pljames
