Book: The Biology of Belief

Returning to this book after completing "Velvet Elvis" and "Financial Speculation" Just finished the chapter on the cell membrane as the "true brain" of the cell and not it nucleus as we had always been thought. The role of the nucleus is like what the hard disc is to a PC: it stores the instructions, but does not decide on what instructions get used to make proteins, to determine the chain of chemical reactions.

I wouldn't be surprised if the author over extend good Science into the speculative, but we must allow our imagination to run ahead of Science in order to make progress. Meanwhile whatever "Blink" ability we might have acquired unaware, I guess it can be useful here.

I am not a reductionist. Has never been. So this is my kind of books. NaviMap friendly.
