LipSmacking=Behavior: All living creature behaviors=expressions of their anatomic features exhibiting the behavior. The only way complex/coordinated/changeable behaviors are achieved is by nervous system/brain control of their anatomy, by the mind within the brain driving the behavior. Does this mean conscious awareness? No! Why? Because most behaviors=expressions of non-conscious activity. Stroke? =Yes. Retraining. ...Read more
