Random thoughts

I had some required reading to do today. Someone approached me about establishing an educational series of groups and gave me a book to look over and think on.

These are some of the things I learned:

In a single human brain, the number of possible interconnections between those cells is greater than the number of atoms in the universe. (I couldn't help but wonder if that was true, why I can never remember where I put my keys)

Our brains have approximately 100 billion nerve cells. Some well-respected authorities put the figure closer to "one million million" (I tried to count the zeros in that and I came up with around one trillion so I was wondering why the well-respected authorities didn't just say around a trillion? But really who cares. I will care about the zeros when someone hands me a check for one trillion....mmmm I wonder what Bill Gates thinks about when he looks at his bank statements?)

All the different Modes: verbal, analytic,symbolic,abstract,temporal, rational, digital, logical, linear. TMI! to much information. I think I will retain that for all of two minutes.

And last:: have learned two big words today and their definitions

Hpnagogic: Sense experiences while a person is falling asleep.

Hypnopompic: Sense experiences as a person is waking up.

How nice to know...now if I could only pronounce them I would be feeling extra smart today.

I think another will be more suited for this project so I will pass.

If only they would creat pronounceable words!!! I have a hard enough time with some words - without them making up words that seem impossible to say out loud!!!
