"Gifts of wandering ice" updates on Mondays and Fridays


Paypal no longer works in my country, so I can't get money from Ko-fi, Gumroad, and ComicAd.
But now I have good news!
Patreon still works! And I've replaced Ko-fi with Buymeacoffee! that works with Payoneer instead of Paypal. You can even buy my books there now. Boosty still works as well. It accepts Paypal and all cards.



Page 319 - Mirror neurons
September 2, 2016
Mirror neurons in our brain fire both when we make and action and observe someone else making it. They play an important role in empathy and learning, and their activity is on a spectrum on one end of which there are empaths and on the other there are sociopaths. "Normal" people are somewhere in the middle. Mirror neurons activity depends on a number of specific genes and is hereditary. Elie is an empath, that's why reminiscences triggered by certain ice gifts are so painful for her: her mirror neurons perfectly reproduce the pain and suffering if there were any in the reminiscence. As if they were her own.
