A physician friend of mine indicates that there is a neural net of sorts in
the abdominal area, thus the expression and experience of "gut feelings."
He told me that there are actually serotonin processes down there [forgive
the vagueness of that statement - I don't have enough medical background to
be more biologically accurate]

In any event, this would speak against the neuro option - consciousness may
not be entirely behind the eyeballs- and the whole may be greater than the
sum of the parts which themselves are derived from unexpected locations.
