biography is not written in your memory, at least it can not
be read without changing it!
Try to remember a biographical event of your life - by recalling
the contents of your episodic memory you "reframe"
the event, you add a little of the actual situation (see literature
on memory research)
That means a biography is not a chain of events or a fixed text
but recalled episodes are the more or less actualized mixtures
of experienced facts and their narrative descriptions.
I was born as the first child of
a language teacher (Latin and Greek) and a farmer's daughter.
A sister followed 7 years later.
After school and medical studies in Vienna I became married,
a son was born 1983 and a daughter was born 1985. In 1999 I
Profession: After training for a general practitioner I stayed in hospital
and became a blood transfusion specialist. After working as a full time resident doctor in
a blood bank in Vienna I resigned in 2012.
Maybe my first 5 years

vertebrates originated with fishlike forms a few hundred million
years ago, later becoming amphibia, reptiles and mammals (which
were very small at the beginning). Later some of them became
monkeys, apes, and still later hominoids.....
a humanist (another bias) I believe that humans are qualitatively
different from animals, they entertain additional sensori-motor circuits (see "Eigen-quality"
The next bias is being a nervous system theoretician. Nervous systems
developed evolutionarily and individually by interaction
(see the "other" theory /
die "Andere" Studie).
I propose we are all endo-positioned. Endo- means inside, we
can't help but we live within our body. No-body will object
to that statement.
Furthermore I believe that I feel and perceive, think and act
through my nervous system, so I further propose a socalled endo-neuro-position.
