"The mind is a compact, multiply connected thought mass with internal connections of the most intimate kind. It grows continuously as new thought masses enter it, and this is the means by which it continues to develop."

Bernhard Riemann On Psychology and Metaphysics ca. 1860

"It is clear that the minds are the most important part of the universe, and that everything was established for their sake; that is, in choosing the order of things, the greatest account was taken of them; all things being arranged in such a way that they appear the more beautiful the more they are understood."

G. W. Leibniz

New Study Proves that Utter Nonsense is Still Profitable

This just in from the Isle of  Laputa:

"Study finds the mind is a frequent, but not happy, wanderer
November 11, 2010
People spend 46.9 percent of their waking hours thinking about something other than what they're doing, and this mind-wandering typically makes them unhappy. So says a study that used an iPhone web app to gather 250,000 data points on subjects' thoughts, feelings, and actions as they went about their lives."

I am certainly unhappy that such utter piffle masquerading as science is being funded at all. Why don't we set up an academy of naval gazing instead? Oh, pardon me, I forgot about string theory...
