Back to the very beginning, starting off on a better foot.

I shall continue to use this outlet as a stream of consciousness, an archive of special things I see and discover. I am currently obsessed with this series of investigations on emotion by June Grabner called ‘Experts on Emotion.’ We are just about the only species that, despite our similarities, pursue individual paths respectively. Self-awareness is half the battle.


Evolution and Emotion

Universality of Emotion


Emotion and the Brain

Guilt and Shame


Unconscious Emotion

Social Regulation of Emotion, episode 14.3


New research done by Michael E. Martinez alters our understanding of intelligence, purporting that it is more fluid than initially projected. Salon featured an insightful excerpt from his newest book, Future Bright: A Transforming Vision of Human Intelligence, earlier this summer.  It is both a quick lesson on the layout of the human brain and exciting news about the flexibility of the organ itself. Check it out here.
