I was extremely impressed

I was extremely impressed by this reading. Oliver Sacks is an amazingly intriguing person whom we could easily emulate in our own observations of the mind.

His assessments of the unconscious in Greg and Dr. Bennett (that's his name, right?) let us see just how far-reaching the powers of the unconscious are. The simple fact that both Greg and Dr. Bennett's unconscious functions seemed to transcend their respective mental "defects" lets us know that there is far more to the unconscious mind than we could possibly conceive.

 Now, how does that make you feel?
