[2017-11-14] Subconscious

Post by Tony »


I'd be less surprised to discover that the subconscious is constantly rebooting, like a vintage PC with a buggy OS.
"That one thing we did at freshman prom" is just one more piece of bloatware that gets loaded every time, but isn't useful anymore.
In the same vein, being "in the zone" is probably just the result of sticking to one train of thought, similar to clean-booting and running a lone well-behaved app, resulting in fewer reboots even on crappy hardware.
Wait...what was I saying?

Votey FYI: "IRB" is an "institutional review board", sometimes called an ethical review board (ERB), independent ethics committee (IEC) or research ethics board (REB).
