Is that all there is?
Neuroscientist Vilayanur Ramachandran celebrates his materialistic, mechanistic, reductionist world view while delivering the 2003 BBC Reith Lectures to the applause of the reductionally converted:
...it never ceases to amaze me that all the richness of our mental life - all our feeling, our emotions, our thoughts, our ambition, our love life, our religious sentiments and even what each of us regards as his own intimate private self - is simply the activity of the[..] little specks of jelly in your head, in your brain. There is nothing else.
Indeed "it" never ceases to amaze. Which reminds me of a little song...
I remember when I was a girl[as sung by Peggy Lee and written by Jerry Leiber & Mike Stoller]
Yes, that's all there is, my friend, now go to sleep and dream sweet dreams.
There is nothing but atoms and molecules... and jelly... especially in Ramachandran's lecture...
