It has all the turbulence, twists and turns of romantic love, but thats part of the game  (Vilayanur S Ramachandran Quotes) Science tells us we are merely beasts, but we don’t feel like that. We feel like angels trapped inside the bodies of beasts, forever craving transcendence  (Vilayanur S Ramachandran Quotes) What the neurology tells us is that the self consists of many components, and the notion of one unitary self may well be an illusion  (Vilayanur S Ramachandran Quotes) It may well be our brains are wired up to be slightly more optimistic than they should be  (Vilayanur S Ramachandran Quotes) Ask, ‘How are we different from the great apes?’ We have culture, we have civilisation, and we have language to be celebrated as part of being human  (Vilayanur S Ramachandran Quotes) The minute you succumb to outside pressure, you cease to be creative  (Vilayanur S Ramachandran Quotes) A culture without mythology is not really a civilisation  (Vilayanur S Ramachandran Quotes) Any ape can reach for a banana, but only humans can reach for the stars  (Vilayanur S Ramachandran Quotes) If we knew about the real facts and statistics of mortality, wed be terrified  (Vilayanur S Ramachandran Quotes) Remember that politics, colonialism, imperialism and war also originate in the human brain  (Vilayanur S Ramachandran Quotes)
