Memory: A Proven Fact (postscript)
Electromagnetic intensification to facilitate voluntary activities
Since the brain or central ganglionic neurons interact with incoming or resident eM particles first to sense whatever these incoming eMs represent, such resident eMs in these sensorineurons not only act as memory traces but also intensify the neuronal awareness of them. This direct quantitative relationship between input and sensory awareness can be readily illustrated by hitting ourselves over the head, or safer, just the back of our hand. The more we hit it, the more we remember the pain, and inside the brain, more aware of our hand's existence. Sometimes, when a person has suffered such intractable pains in one part of the body prior to its amputation that one suffers for decades from "phantom pains" after its amputation. This in mechanism is identical to the greater familiarity we have of our bodily parts, such as fingers, limbs, etc. , with repeated practice. Initially, we struggle to select the correct finger to strike that right key. With practice, we instantly or even reflexively pick that correct finger to strike the right key. This is the process of electromagnetic intensification of sensation inside the brain: a direct quantitative relationship.

Because eMs are being sensed, their retention inside the sensorineurons naturally turns them into re-sensable memories. Quantitatively, it must also be expected, and has been found being true that the greater the eM input, the greater the sensation(Fig. 1). In fact, the harder we hit the back of our hands, the more intense the pain. Likewise, unless the brain is exhausted, the longer we hit, the more pain there we remember. This is why, the more we practise, the more we are self-aware of those parts having to be timely selected for activation. Other than the obvious anatomical changes with practise, such as increased interneuronal connections for the brain parts in charge of those musculoskeletal parts, unquestionably the underlying sensing, re-sensing and facilitated self-selection of the right brain sites for activation and therefore voluntary motor activities#FNT0 depend on and can be accounted for only by increased accumulation of eM with practise: more input, more retention, the same as and therefore further proven by the aforementioned phenomenon of "the more we think of it, the more we remember it." Why only eMs being memory particles can account for these? Well, unless the thing being accumulated can be sensed by the sensorineurons, increasing its quantity in the brain or central ganglia cannot augment a person's or animal's self-awareness of that bodily part from which these accumulating sensations arose. Since eMs are the input substance which effectively cause sensations in the central sensorineurons, only these eMs could be memory particles whose quantitative increase heightens self-awareness of those brain sites being thus repeatedly stimulated or "exercised."(Fig. 1)
