Awesome! I listen to Free Talk Live and have been keeping up with this, though I'm about half a week behind.

Are you floating over the city, or do you just have unstable neurons?

Oo interesting thank you. I had Dr Sue Blackmore as a teacher at uni, and I can remember all those years ago discussing how the brain constructed our perception, and could fail under stress - but the physical research has galloped ahead in the last few years.

There was a guy at TAM 9 who, when I mentioned this, said this was just 'impossible'. Why? Because all the kids he knows only pirate the stuff and never buy anything.

I think he missed the little detail that most kids don't have transportation or money.
