Audio illusion

Your brain is smarter than you think.

Your brainI’ve never really spent much time pondering how my brain works. I usually sit back and let it push the edit button, all-the-while thinking about dragons the meaning of life. That was, until I found this audio file, which made me recognize that there’s actually a “thing” up there doing it all. Then I thought about how my brain was thinking about my brain, and how it thinks. Then I got a headache. The clip comes from the “Your Brain” exhibit that’s currently set up at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia. So if you’re ever in the “always sunny” city, go check it out.
