The Eleventh Doctor and Amy Pond

The Eleventh Doctor and Amy Pond (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

G’day, such as it is. Last week was incredibly bad, especially with the tragic events of 4/15, and I’ve nothing new to add to the discussion that you probably haven’t seen already.

I’ve lately posted this for Caturday, but decided to delay this posting till Sunday, which turned out to be fortuitous: I’ve just today completed a book titled The Invisible Gorilla, on a variety of cognitive illusions that we all experience daily and ways to mitigate them.

I’ll be posting a preliminary review on Goodreads tonight with a more comprehensive treatment later this week on this blog.

In a nutshell, the book deals with the illusions of attention, memory, confidence, knowledge, causation, potential and lastly, tying them all together, the illusion of intuition, that by which the others so often fool us.

I’m also going through a copy, borrowed from library, soon to be replaced by one I buy for myself, of Copi’s Introduction to Logic, which is proving to be incredibly interesting.

So. Much. To. Learn!

Also, the most recent Fractals of the Week post got Mentioned on Twitter this morning by @symbiartic, and that’s just cool, just as long as I don’t let it go to my head… Thanks, Glendon!

Here’s hoping for all of you that this new week is better than last, so be well and be brilliant!

Namaste, to all my peeps.

    Sorry I’m so late. Congratulations on the brief stardom on Twitter. Very cool!
    Hope you are all doing well. Two tragedies in your country last week, it’s a bit scary when it’s close to home.

    • Yes. The day of the Boston bombings I had at first wanted to go to the library, but I decided that it would be a Bad Idea™ with all the security buzzing about major cities.
