I’ve been working on an idea for several months: that exerting effort, force, has an subjective feeling, a quale, which lies behind a person’s intuitive idea of physics and causality. 

Downstream effects: when an infant gains control of voluntary movement, by way of this qualia, it gains sense an ability to affect the world and, hence,  free will.

If the greatest virtue we can aspire to is love
And the greatest follies in our lives are due to love
And we can’t cure our frenzied malady of love
But all sages exhort us just to love
And pure poison emanates from loss in love
And pure bliss is promised us from lovely love
And what about those horrid beings we just can’t love
And what about that horrid feeling of being unloved
So what in heaven/hell is love?

Introduction
I'm a neuroscientist. My work is on the hippocampus, learning and memory. Recent focus has been on grid cells — inquiring about what they are good for. 

I've started a blog at coronaradiata.net. Neuroscience, politics and miscellany.

Twitter: @JohnKubie 

I also do a lot of teaching. The biggest job is working with a faculty group to teach neuroscience to first-year med students. Also teach PT, OT and PA students. Also graduate students. I've written software to help with neuroanatomy labs. It's freely available. 

I've done some lectures for popular audiences, most recently at the Rubin Museum in Manhattan. Fun and a challenge. 

My hobby is consciousness; trying to relate it to neuroscience. Progress is slow.

Other interests: public education, K-12 education, evolution, social behavior, decision making, value systems.
