|Beginning of Brains|
Carl Jung, for example while trying to investigate the brain, thought that religion was important because it is a place of safety for an individual as he or she begins to process their individuality. I utmost agree with Jung but this seemed like a pivotal point because as he slowly progresses from religion, he is able to stem off to other material/subjects. Another interesting thing is that as Jung started to dissect psychology of "modern man" vs "medieval man" and while he is at it, he degrades all actions of the modern man even though, he, himself is guilty of being a modern man. It is weird to explain a sort of phenomenon of yourself while exploring neuroscience.
In TED conference, Christopher deCharms talks about MRI that shows brain activity during thoughts, emotions, and pain. I think this is important relating to art because those three are what creates art while art conveys these three by stimulating the brain.

David Deutsch of Ted Conferences, talk about another way to explain explanation. His lecture really reminded me of my philosophy class. He identifies with Karl Popper's theory of knowledgable. He asserts "The truth consists of hard-to-vary assertions about reality is the most important fact about the physical world. It is a fact that is unseen, yet impossible to vary". This does really remind me of the idea of induction and that not everything can be guaranteed and that what we call real life, reality but what happens when reality is not entirely true?
