In arguing that current theories of brain function cast suspicion on ESP,
psychokinesis, reincarnation, and so on, I am frequently challenged with
the most popular of all neuro-mythologies -- the notion that we ordinarily
use only 10 percent of our brains...

This "cerebral spare tire" concept continues to nourish the clientele of
"pop psychologists" and their many recycling self-improvement schemes. As
a metaphor for the fact that few of us fully exploit our talents, who could
deny it? As a refuge for occultists seeking a neural basis of the miraculous,
it leaves much to be desired.

Psi Phenomena", The Skeptical Enquirer, Vol. XII, No. 2, pg. 171

... The cable had passed us by; the dish was the only hope, and eventually
we were all forced to turn to it. By the summer of 85, the valley had more
satellite dishes per capita than an Eskimo village on the north slope of
Alaska.

Mine was one of the last to go in. I had been nervous from the start about
the hazards of too much input, which is a very real problem with these
things. Watching TV becomes a full-time job when you can scan 200 channels
all day and all night and still have the option of punching Night Dreams
into the video machine, if the rest of the world seems dull.

"Israel today announced that it is giving up. The Zionist state will dissolve
in two weeks time, and its citizens will disperse to various resort communities
around the world. Said Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir, Who needs the
aggravation?"
