Phase transition and the Phenomenal Self

Even a baby has a notion of self. It cries and laughs when the "other" touches it, makes sounds towards it. This implies the self is a constant from infancy.

What is this self ?

I think the phenomenal self to be an emergent phenomenon of physiological process that govern interoception/proprioception and that remains throughout life and even during processes such as sleeping and dreaming.

Everything is connected to everthing else in some way. A simple explanation is as follows:
At every level of emergence the superimposing layer is resonating with the underlying layer at the same frequency , but the amplitude of each layer is different. Each layer of emergence consists of resonating frequencies with differing amplitudes that branch to form a fractal like pattern, giving rise to complexity.

Concepts of entanglement at the quantum level are beginning to be discovered which support the above.

When the complexity of vibrations/oscillatory motion reaches a certain critical thresh…
