The brain is plastic and continues to change, not in getting bigger but allowing for greater complexity and deeper understanding.
—Kathleen Taylor, a professor at St. Mary’s College of California, as quoted in “How to Train the Aging Brain.”
I rather enjoyed this observation and the additive notion of our brains growing older and not just simply deteriorating. And, by regularly jarring our brains with a “disorienting dilemma” (which I hope we accomplish with the many voices on SOF), we can probe and add to that depth and interconnectedness of knowledge.
