2nd day at the Science Foo camp.

2nd day at the Science Foo camp on the Googleplex. Discussions begin in earnest. The sessions are self-organized, scribed down on large post-its on a large schedule board. I chose to attend the Evolution of beauty, Lightening talks (II), Minds, brains and children, Embracing uncertainty, Aliens and search for life 2.0., Death of old media & the birth of new democracy, and Future of authors sessions.

I met quite a few interesting people. E.g., Jaron Lanier and John Brockman.

I just love the atmosphere of free concepts exchange and jazzy dance together of minds. During the sessions, I always made a point of speaking out. But since the exchange of vocalized opinions are so continuous and never-breaking, my own music of thought needed to be precisely timed and had to be explosive when successfully inserted.
I thank the organizers and participants for the awesomeness of the whole thing.

Each session that you attended looks so interesting. I could listen to a part of the resonance.
I have come to see a session in a new light. If the participants attend it as their own musical instruments of thought, then it will become a new art itself and open up new democracy.

Whether you like it or not, welcome back to Japan!

Google's imagination is now changing almost all the fields in this real world.

Imagination changes reality? Oh, this is just one of the important themes of your book, "The Brain and Imagination". It's the truth.
