Pat is very well-spoken and this is one of the coolest topics out there to me.

I took as many neuro classes as I could in grad school and strongly considered a 2-year post doc in neuropsych simply because it is such a fascinating topic.

Thanks for posting.

I look forward to checking this out.

You guys seen this one, which shows how rhythm is actually harmony and melody, too?

Just started. He had me at “because the goal is maximum consciousness...”

Yes.

Edited to add: “You basically need a Troubleshooter’s mindset to improvise. There’s a priesthood element, sure, but a whole lot of refrigerator repairman impulses in there, too.”

I love this guy.

He’s kept a journal, every day, of every concert, as part of examining his own consciousness. Oh man. His intelligence just crackles, doesn’t it? Radiates off him in his plainspoken clarity.
