Random Brain Talk

I don’t know what to write about tonight.  So here is a funny picture of Simone as a Transformer:


It’s funny how those “stick your head through a hole or on top of a big picture” things trick the mind briefly.  When I first saw this picture that Constance took at the Indianapolis Children’s Museum today, I sort of thought she was wearing a robot suit.  For a second.

The brain works super fast.  It’s a good thing, too.  It’s why computers still do not react to real world situations as fast as humans.  The tradeoff for working really fast is that the brain’s accuracy rate is way lower than a computer’s.  I’ve read that the brain works fast by drawing conclusions based on patterns.  Glance at someone who “looks like a man” and your brain decides it’s a man.  A computer would not conclude that it is a man nearly as quickly unless you gave it an algorithm that allowed it to draw a conclusion based on probabilities.

Anyway, I find all of that interesting.  It didn’t take long for me to figure out that Simone wasn’t wearing a robot suit.  But it was only after I processed the information a little further.

I guess this is what Post 61 on Day 61 looks like.  Random and rambling.  But you did get to see a cute picture.  Hey, if you don’t like it, I’ll give you your money back 🙂
