Knowing without knowing


I have a new post over on the Scientific American Mind Matters website. It describes new research which suggests that tune deafness and face blindness - two examples of conditions known as agnosias, both of which can be genetic - are caused not by a failure of the brain to recognise previously seen faces or detect incongruous musical notes, but a failure to communicate these events to frontal brain regions where conscious awareness is triggered.

  7. Again, you can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something - your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.
