What is Reality? Watch The Brain with David Eagleman Online | PBS Video
and this...this is fascinating. the buddhists were right! maybe. "all an illusion..."
reality is a construct of the brain, an effort to create something that allows the animal to function in a world which may not resemble what we think we know at all. we look through a tiny window.
I wish the program also went into, "if reality isn't really what we think it is, what might it resemble? what might it be?" is it possible to perceive it somehow...
maybe that's a different episode.

poignant in the late afternoon sun and shadow, leaning against the window's black bars, phone number stenciled on your back.

Lots and lots of green, rolling hills, wooden barns and houses, lakes and streams, and, to be frank, white folk (with a few different colors in Burlington). Anyway, a nice mix of rural with progressive. Bread & Puppet always invigorates the soul, reminding me what "artistic freedom" means. Vermont College of Fine Arts was a nice surprise, with an active gallery exhibition, amongst which was a a giant zoetrope by the animation instructor at Lyndon State College. Camped in some fine state parks, enjoying canoes and kayaks and little trails. No ticks! And the special treat of Montreal, Quebec, Canada, for a quick afternoon walk around, gave me the thrill of being in another country, if only for a moment. Love the Franco/Anglo split in that city. Life is for traveling and seeing new things...
