This last week comes with sad tidings, with the death by cancer of neuroscientist and brilliant neuroscience popularizer, Oliver Sacks. We’ve lost a giant, one who like all great human beings is truly irreplaceable.

This week also saw, as of Thursday, the new posting schedule for this blog projected to continue through this month and October, after which I’ll decide on updating it, tweaking it as necessary.

The Demon-Haunted World

I’ve begun rereading Carl Sagan’s The Demon-Haunted World, and listening to the audiobook as well. My goal is to read it 100 times, every chapter, passage, and datum so that I know it by heart. That will also require copious note-taking, which is always good.

I hope things go well this new week for all of us, as opposed to something like an outbreak of cat zombies, which would just be…wrong, on so many levels!
