People seem to like the Neocortex part(computer) of their brain and try really hard to keep it dominant (through self-discipline, meditation)but what about the two other computers?
His Limbic (old mammalian brain) the one that makes you take care of kids worked with his reptilian brain (aggression), and that’s fine – he was in a state of panic, and that was the best solution his brain(s) offered to his rational brain.
