from the urls-we-dig-up dept

The question of how brains can think is a fascinating field of study — since the question is largely unanswered still.

By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

It is a little disconcerting once you really get how much information your brain makes up.
I wonder how many wars are a result of this. Something happens, our brains make up a bunch of shit about it. Others brains make up a bunch of shit about it that is different. We disagree. “It’s this”, “no, it’s that”, “It’s this” , “no, it’s that”. War.

Brains work like this…
