“The body is my temple, the postures are my prayers…As animals, we walk the earth. As bearers of a divine essence, we are among the stars. As human beings, we are caught in the middle, seeking to reconcile the paradox of how to make our way upon the earth while striving for something more permanent and more profound. So many seek this greater Truth in the heavens but it lies much closer than the clouds. It is within us and can be found by anyone on the Inward Journey.” Sri BKS Iyengar 1918-2014
"Studying the brain is like working in a toy store. Nothing could be more fucking fun." "What do you think is the greatest weakness of the brain?" "That’s a lousy question! I’m not answering it." "Why is it a lousy question?" "What do you want me to say? Road rage? That we get pissed and shoot people? That the newest parts of our brain should have been in the oven a little longer? How’s that going to help you? If you ask a crappy question, you’ll never get a decent answer. You need to ask smaller questions— questions that give you a pathway to finding some pertinent information. The major advances in brain science don’t come from asking crappy questions like ‘What is Consciouness?’ They come from microanalysis. They come from discovering pertinent information at the cellular level."
