Ask A Genius 262 – Endless Forms Most Beautiful (2)

Scott Douglas Jacobsen & Rick Rosner

August 17, 2017

And by choosing, I mean, yeah, if you’re lucky you’ll get to choose, and if you’re less lucky, the level of absorption will not be entirely up to you which in itself will be okay also in that we don’t—our brains consist of a number of information processing, not conscious entities but of some parts of our brain, and we feel no loyalty to certain parts of our processing apparatus.
