This is interesting and potentially dangerous research... So males are more utilitarian in behaviour than females, and hence males are also more prone to criminality than females? They suggest that females have a chance in altruistic behavior over time as their brains change, males have a lesser pre-programmed altrusit...ic behaviour repertoire? I would like to see what effect Buddhist meditation has on these results, as it also seem to cause neuro-plasticity.

goeie kommentaar oor wat die internet doen aan ons...
Ek dink HIERDIE is die beste kommentaar wat ek nog gehoor het... omdat dit op n Borges
boek(e) gebaseer is... een van my gunsteling.

"In his "On Exactitude in Science", Borges carries on with similar ideas concerning trace as he describes an empire in which the craft of cartography attained such precision that its map has emerged as large as the kingdom it depicts. Scale, or difference, was now replaced by repetition. A model within itself, such a map embodies the dissimilarity between reality and its representation. It becomes the territory itself and the origin loses authenticity; it achieves the state of being more real than real as there is no reality left to chart."

Dis n pragtige beskrywing van hoe Gödel die Principia Mathematica gebruik het om sy on voltooidheid teorie te bewys.... PRAGTIG!!
