"second nature" literary means epi-phenomena (nature being a primary
phenomena), as I explained in my response to Frank (03)

My explanation of epigenetic (in-born)"knowledge" is migration of emergent
epi-phenomena of learning, language and such - from meta-physical semantic
dimension into physical syntactic dimension of genes. (05)

No qualitative difference (Sorry:-). Our meta-physical space (mapped to
physical structure of brain) is simply much larger and allows the migration
that I mentioned above accelerate and lead to massive emerging epi-phenomena
that we call "civilization". (07)

The "special" role of visualization and other senses is that they form
syntactic dimension and provide a "bandwidth" allowing accelerate emergent
processes of semantic formation and migration I described above. Naturally
migrated (permanent) connections retain their original semantic significance
for new emergent epi-phenomena. That is the nature of perception. (09)

This cam be explained by chaotic nature of emergent "mind" epi-phenomena. This
is where order is emerging at "the edge of chaos" borrowing phrase from ...
