Hi everyone,

I remember reading the same line, in a Feynman book, that Aurino remembers. I think it went more like, 'After all, what is your brain? It is last week's potatoes." He was emphasizing the mysterious relationships among your identity, your consciousness, and your brain and body. He didn't offer any insight into those relationships, just the mystery.

Since the only other Feynman book I have read that you didn't mention, Kyle, was The Meaning of It All, it must have come from there. I just looked and I couldn't find it, though.

While I'm on the subject, I think What Do You Care... has considerable value if you are interested in the inquiry into the Challenger disaster.

Warm regards,

Paul
