excuse me, can you hand me that tub of old lady rub for me? cause im an old lady. I have no idea if it has another meaning or if it's from somewhere or what but it gets stuck in my head, redundancy and bad punctuation and all.
Thought of the Moment
We have a good model of a dozen or so regions of the auditory and visual cortex, how we strip images down to very low-resolution movies based on pattern recognition. Interestingly, we don't actually see things, we essentially hallucinate them in detail from what we see from these low resolution cues. Past the early phases of the visual cortex, detail doesn't reach the brain.That thought is interesting...it's probably what makes learning to draw well so hard, and what makes dreams so vivid.
