The Secret Life of the Brain
Ponder this. You are cordially invited to match wits with some of the best minds in IBM Research. Seems some of us can't see a problem without wanting to take a crack at solving it. Does that sound like you? Good. Forge ahead and ponder. (Way above my little head…)
On Bullshit, by Harry Frankfurt:
“One of the most salient features of our culture is that there is so much bullshit. Everyone knows this. Each of us contributes his share. But we tend to take the situation for granted. Most people are rather confident of their ability to recognize bullshit and to avoid being taken in by it. So the phenomenon has not aroused much deliberate concern, or attracted much sustained inquiry… In consequence, we have no clear understanding of what bullshit is, why there is so much of it, or what functions it serves. ...
“Everything I know”. The historic 42-hour session with Bucky. During the last two weeks of January 1975 Buckminster Fuller gave a series of lectures concerning his entire life’s work. These thinking out loud lectures span 42 hours and examine in depth all of Fuller's major inventions and discoveries. This printed work before you is a transcript of those lectures
