This evening we read from chapter one where Jake discovered the three Nobel Prize winners had attended the same elementary school, so he decided to investigate further. This discovery motivated Jake to take a trip to NY at the school where it all started.
We had a lot of great discussions about what percentage of our brain is presently being utilized.
Reference was made to a movie seen through science fiction which highlighted a woman using 100% of her brain. It was felt that the movie portrayed this woman as being robotic and without emotions such as love, passion or joy. The conclusion made, was that even with more knowledge we would still have compassion similar to what is demonstrated in this Literature.
We had great comments and integrations on the call from the members.
