Jonah Lehrer, a regular contributor to Radiolab, is now on a book tour, touting his new best-seller Imagine. It's a book that explores creativity and the brain. The other day at a book signing, he bumped into a fourth-grader who asked him if there's such a thing as too much creativity. "Isn't it possible," the 9-year-old asked, "that humans are too creative?"
(Jonah attracts worried 9-year-olds. It's his curse.)
Yesterday, we took a look at invisible winds suddenly made visible, streaming across the Earth. This being the blustery season, I've got more wind today, this time streaming across the sea, but looking uncannily like a van Gogh sky.
