    The following quote has got to be my most favorite quote all year long:

    “I mean if you just look inside the brain, it…..a very complicated organ but it’s 100 billion neurons and 100 trillion synapses so a lot of neurons talking to each other but just take it down to one neuron right, it’s looking for an input and once it gets the input it fires and that firing causes another neuron to fire and that’s how the brain works, right, how do you get conscious will, freewill into that system, it’s just inputs and outputs on a vast massive scale where we’re incorporating lots of information and we’re making simulations and calculations but it’s all happening in neurons right there’s nothing directing the neurons there’s no ghost-in-the-machine that’s telling the neurons how to behave and each individual neuron isn’t a mind where it says, you know I’m not gonna fire this time I’m deciding not to fire right, that’s what the brain is so it’s hard knowing that’s how things work how do you get in a conscious choice into that?” – Dr. Thalia Wheatley, from the Youtube video “Alan Alda gets hypnotized” between approximately 9 minutes and 20 seconds and 10 minutes and 19 seconds.

    “There is something within me that might be illusion as it is often case with young delighted people, but if I would be fortunate to achieve some of my ideals, it would be on the behalf of the whole of humanity. If those hopes would become fulfilled, the most exiting thought would be that it is a deed of a Serb.” - Nikola Tesla

    “Out of this war, the greatest since the beginning of history, a new world must be born, a world that would justify the sacrifices offered by humanity. This new world must be a world in which there shall be no exploitation of the weak by the strong, of the good by the evil; where there will be no humiliation of the poor by the violence of the rich; where the products of intellect, science and art will serve society for the betterment and beautification of life, and not the individuals for achieving wealth." - Nikola Tesla

    Still think INTJs are all "evil?"

    "As strange as it seems, I am coming to believe that there are some people, maybe many, who believe that rules actually exist. That when you write a law it actually changes the world. That when you forbid bullying in school, bullying will magically decrease. And magically is the operative word because there is nothing inherent in paper and ink to change people's behavior. Unenforced, rules only have power over the people who consciously agree to abide by them or those so brainwashed or superstitious that they, too believe the rules are real. Someone who believes that a 'Keep Off The Grass' sign actually forces people not to walk on grass." - Rory Miller
