Richard Dawkins' opening talk, in a session called
Meme Power at the TED Global (Technology, Entertainment and Design) conference, explored the ways in which humans invent their own
realities to make sense of the infinitely complex worlds they are in--
worlds made more complex by ideas such as quantum physics which is
beyond most human understanding.
How else to explain Numerology, Phrenology and Scientology?
Maybe Aldous Huxley is right in his book, Doors of Perception, when he suggests that there is an infinity of information and stimuli washing over us in a barrage and it is our mind's responsibility to filter out anything that impairs our ability to survive.
Tnx and a tip of the hat to Chris Abraham
