Ray Kurzweil on Creating Ourselves
So we actually create our own neocortex. All those connections between these different modules, you create with your own thoughts — and what you choose to think about. Not only does your brain create your thoughts, but your thoughts create your brain.
– Ray Kurzweil
Jump to minute 2:50 in the video to get to this really interesting part where Kurzweil is talking about new research on the prefrontal cortex. Mani Scienide or Derya Unutmaz – do you know to what he is referring?
Thanks to Brad Acker for drawing this interview to my attention (and for getting the text for the quote).
