And never was there an answer, there an answer.
Not without listening, without seeing.
- David Gilmour
"He explains how our brains are wired to find the Good (by reason), discover the True (by science), and admire the Beautiful (by cultural selection). His sources range widely, from Plato to Magritte, John Locke to Prince Kropotkin. With this book, Changeux assumes the mantle of Denis Diderot."
—Gerald Weissmann, author of Epigenetics in the Age of Twitter
“One of the world’s current leading neuroscientists approaches anew Plato’s ultimate questions relating to the natural world—from the functioning of the billions of neurons in our brains all the way to their molecular structures and interactions. An illuminating contribution for the thoughtful reader.”
—Roger Guillemin, 1977 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, The Salk Institute, La Jolla California
“Jean-Pierre Changeux is the leading expert on the brain’s epigenetic plasticity--what accounts for its interaction with the outside world. In this masterful book, he provides a cornucopia of brilliant insights into the neurobiological grounding and social nurturing of art, ethics and scientific truth.”
—Suzanne Nalbantian, author of Memory in Literature: From Rousseau to Neuroscience
My mission is to create music that makes it possible for
joy, happiness and ultimately upliftment to flow through the
listener and to (if even for short lived moments) take you (and
me) above mind created constructs, so we can really feel
alive and ALLOW what is happening in the present moment.
