The Brain with David Eagleman

sq_whowhatSpeaking of brains, “The Brain with David Eagleman” by neuroscientist and author David Eagleman is currently showing on PBS. The first episode “What is reality?” was pretty good, showing reasons why what we think of as an objective reality is really just a temporally delayed and conceptually constructed neurological fabrication.

The six episodes are titled:

  1. What is reality?
  2. What makes me?
  3. Who is in control?
  4. How do I decide?
  5. Why do I need you?
  6. Who will we be?

I wonder if the answers to these questions will pretty much be “the brain, the brain, the brain…”. Check your local listings and tune in to find out!
