Quote of The Day 2012-04-04

The brain works as naturally as the kidneys and the blood-vessels. It is not dormant just because there is no conscious purpose to be served at the moment…

…it goes right on manufacturing ideas – streams and deluges of ideas, that the sleeper is not using to think with about anything. But the brain is following its own law; it is actively translating experiences into symbols, in fulfillment of a basic need to do so. It carries on a constant process of ideation.

- Susanne K. Langer
