The three-pound…

The three-pound organ in your skull — with its pink consistency of Jell-o — is an alien kind of computational material. It is composed of miniaturized, self-configuring parts, and it vastly outstrips anything we’ve dreamt of building. So if you ever feel lazy or dull, take heart: you’re the busiest, brightest thing on the planet.

An uplifting quote from author and neuroscientist David Eagleman. The focus of his work is primarily perception and synesthesia. A great mind to look into for the “Perception” group. Kerri, I recommend that you check him out he co-wrote a book called “Wednesday Is Indigo Blue: Discovering the Brain of Synesthesia”.
