Hi Zigoteau! Thanks for your answer. I have problem to believe it starts
there. It should then start at a molecular and the smaller sub atomic
levels. But do we then control what happens? And how can we control the
start of a biochemical thought if there are no chemical reactions before
that one?

But of course, if our thoughts just happen in random :0)
