Dear L,

I would argue that the cognitive revolution is the most amazing thing that ever happened to the human species.

And on that note, today we will celebrate the evolution and our minds.

At least not in a conventional sense; We’ll talk a bit about surprising ways evolution has governed flora and fauna on this planet. We’ll also talk a bit about the onslaught of information & decisions and how we can try to deal with it.
