Thanks Leon,
I was actually referring to the neurological question that was raised in the mindspring group. Especially in relation to retina connection as the foetus has no eye contact with the world, yet reacts to stimulus from that (unseen from the foetus pov) world. I was trying to make the point that it is the mind and not the brain that translates the world of the foetus.

Check your previous quote from Isis Unveiled where HPB explains instinct in 
lower life forms (i.e., cells and organs of fetus) as an aspect of universal 
consciousness. From a metaphysical scientific POV (ref: ABC theory) -- such 
instinctive consciousness has no need for a brain to react to impulses from its 
environment. In such primative forms, their surrounding, transformative, 7 
fold (coadunate but not consubstantial) fields of consciousness exist, as does 
their zero-points of receptive awareness and responsive will -- that can act 
in accord with the instinctive or archetypal memories carried in their highest 
order field, which is linked directly to the univeral memory fieid (or akasha, 
in theosophical terms).
