ABSTRACT
The term brain activity refers to a wide range of mental faculties that can be assessed either onanatomical/functional
micro-, meso- and macro- spatiotemporal scales of observation, or on intertwined levels with mutual interactions. Here
we show, based on novel topological findings, how every brain activity encompassed in a given anatomical or
functional level necessarily displays a counterpart in others. Different brain activities are able to scatter, collide and
combine, merging, condensing and stitching together in a testable and quantifiable way. We point out how, despite
their local cortical functional differences, all the mental processes, from perception to emotions, from cognition to mind
