A first principle representation of integrated quantum thermal correlations of autaptic neurons associated with conscious brain mechanisms is proposed – the former termed the retinoid system by Trehub. Within this formulation, one descends on a set of unitary transformations yielding generic symmetries of the reduced neuronal dynamics illustrating the projection of the abstract degrees of freedom onto 3D space. The actual spatio-temporal symmetry suggests a general mirroring interpretation of the autapse as given by the structure of the neuronal network. The theory prompts a motif for the abundance of chemical synapses from a neuron onto itself and provides a simple explanation of the phi phenomenon and the Necker cube optical illusion.
