    Default Einstein's Brain

    Maybe you know it already. Pretty lovely story of a Japanese professor of mathematics. If anyone knows the theme song, let me know, I love it.

    YouTube - Einstein's Brain part 1

    follow ups are on utube

    edit: the last part actually is not titled "part 7" but "conclusion" on tub

    I was hoping this thread would have photos.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    What a peculiar documentary. I guess the absurdity of the brain's travels was the focus of the doc, along with all the eccentric profs involved.

    It's just one of those things that's so weird it must be true. Inherent to eccentricity.

    Loved the music.

    Anyone know where the brain is now, now that Harvey has died?

    -How beautiful, this pale Endymion hour.
    -What are you talking about?
    -Endymion, my dear. A beautiful youth possessed by the moon.
    -Well, forget about him and get to bed.
    -Yes, my dear.
