" When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe. "

John Muir, My First Summer in the Sierra

" The brain is more than an assemblage of autonomous modules, each crucial for a specific mental function. Every one of these functionally specialized areas must interact with dozens or hundreds of others, their total integration creating something like a vastly complicated orchestra with thousands of instruments, an orchestra that conducts itself, with an ever-changing score and repertoire. "

- Oliver Sacks, The Mind’s Eye (via neuromorphogenesis)

" The human brain starts working the moment you are born and never stops until you stand up to speak in public. "

- Sir George Jessel
