About Me

Treat this as a collection, that doesn't belong to me, but of things I really like to look at. I like themes, but this blog is about idea flow.

On Social Cognition...

"It has become apparent that we lack adequate language with which to describe relationships...The problem perhaps is that bondedness is an explicitly emotional experience and language is a notoriously poor medium for describing our inner, emotional experiences."

From "The Evolution of the Social Brain"
Dunbar and Schultz 2007
Science 317: 1344

Those are the most beautiful words I've ever seen in a scientific publication...especially in Science
