a thought from David Byrne
“It is the same in the realm of thought and feeling —
emotional fizziness and intellectual disruption.
Drunk on love and bubbling new insights.
We are not a brain in a box, separate from our bodies, our senses, and the billions of microbes that live within us.
Love, sex, desire, hunger, and the need to be together may make us less than rational.
We may live in a world of our own imagining, but it allows us to dance, sing, and do a thousand things that machines may never be able to do without programming.
In the new world the rules have changed — or at least there is the possibility of change.
The way things were, the way we made things, it turns out, none of it was inevitable — none of it is the way things have to be.
We can be different.”
